Liverpool will face Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Saturday afternoon, looking to maintain their good form in the Premier League. The Reds secured a narrow 1-0 win over West Ham United in midweek, which will boost their confidence ahead of this game.
Jurgen Klopp will line up his team in a 4-4-2 formation and is expected to make a few changes to his starting lineup for this game. Harvey Elliott and Andrew Robertson will both start, with Kostas Tsimikas and Roberto Firmino dropping to the bench.
4-4-2 Liverpool 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 center of the Liverpool backline as they focus on stopping the opposition from scoring during the 90 minutes.
Trent Alexander-Arnold could start at right-back, with Andrew Robertson filling in on the opposite flank as left-back. Both would be eager to advance and create some decent chances in the final third.
Kostas Tsimikas and Nathaniel Phillips will be available for selection on the bench, providing defensive cover.
Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho will anchor the midfield for the Merseyside giants as they try to control the flow of the game at the center 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.
