Liverpool will face off against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground this Saturday afternoon as they look to keep their good form going in the Premier League. The Reds managed to secure a narrow 1-0 win over West Ham United in midweek which will give them a lot of confidence ahead of this game.
Jurgen Klopp will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a couple of tweaks to his first XI for this game. Both Harvey Elliott and Andrew Robertson will get a chance to play from the start while Kostas Tsimikas and Roberto Firmino drop to the bench.
4-4-2 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Nottingham Forest
Alisson Becker will feature in between the sticks for the Reds after securing back-to-back clean sheets against Manchester City and West Ham respectively. Joe Gomez will continue to feature alongside Virgil Van Dijk at the centre of the Liverpool backline as they focus on stopping the opposition from scoring during the 90 minutes.
Trent Alexander-Arnold could get the nod to start at right-back while Andrew Robertson fills in on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them would be eager to get forward and create some decent chances in the final third.
Kostas Tsimikas and Nathaniel Phillips will be available for selection on the bench as they offer cover for the defensive positions.
Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho will anchor the midfield for the Merseyside giants as they try to control the flow of the game at the centre of the park.
Harvey Elliott will hope to give a good account of himself on the right wing while Fabio Carvalho looks to impress on the left flank. Both of them would have to find a way to offer some decent service to the front players.
James Milner and Jordan Henderson will be named on the bench as they wait for their chance to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if required.
Darwin Nunez will lead the charge alongside Mohamed Salah on the attacking end of the field. Both Liverpool forwards are currently enjoying a good run of form and will fancy their chances to find the back of the net versus Nottingham this weekend.
As mentioned earlier, Roberto Firmino will have to settle for a spot on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if Klopp decides to call upon his services.
