Goal: Jota 78′
Alisson (out of 10) – 7
Alisson was looking to continue his imperious recent form, following his potentially season-defining save against Arsenal in midweek.
Joe Gomez – 8 (Man of the Match)
Gomez came in for the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back, producing a man of the match performance in his less comfortable position.
Ibrahima Konate – 7
Dominant in the air and calm in possession, the Frenchman threaded some neat passes into midfield and dealt with an energetic Forest attack.
Virgil van Dijk – 7
He displayed a solid piece of defending against the dangerous Djed Spence summed up his brilliance and he was a spectator for large periods.
Kostas Tsimikas – 6
Tsimikas replaced Andy Robertson, but despite showing plenty of endeavour, he didn’t have the greatest of evenings.
Tsimikas delivered an inch-perfect cross to Diogo Jota, allowing to him clinch the win.
Fabinho – 7
Fabinho retained his place at the heart of the Reds’ midfield, knitting things together effectively in the middle of the park.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 5
He displayed a hit-and-miss performance. He was quite casual on the ball and lost it few times.
Naby Keita – 7
keita was excellent, pressing relentlessly, and while he was generally reliable on it, he was guilty of losing it cheaply a few times.
Harvey Elliott – 6
Too often, the teenager was guilty of being too safe in possession rather than running at the defence
Diogo Jota – 6
He either gave the ball away or angrily appealed for fouls throughout the first half, offering almost no attacking thrust and often too weak in duels.
Then he goes and shows his priceless goalscoring instincts as he nets the winner for Liverpool
