The team led by Jurgen Klopp entered the game fresh off back-to-back 1-0 victories over Manchester City and West Ham United. But former Liverpool striker Taiwo Awoniyi’s goal was sufficient to deal the Merseysiders another another setback.

Trent Alexander-Arnold did not start the game, but Jaap Stam maintains that the right-back position is the biggest area of concern for Liverpool.

The former Dutch international thinks Jurgen Klopp’s team is lacking in self-assurance. As reported by HITC Sport, he stated on MatchDayExtra on Premier League Productions:

“What’s wrong? I think they are still a very good side and they have very good players. The only thing that’s lacking is confidence.

“But you expect them, after the Manchester City game, a good result, where they didn’t play well, you think the next game you get something out of it.

“Playing Forest, on a very bad run, they need to win, so they are going to give you a hard time.”

“But the confidence you are getting from the Man City game, you might expect them to get more about from this game.

“Maybe oppositions are looking at them a lot more, in terms of ‘where are their weaknesses?’
