Liverpool maintained their momentum in their chase for a top-four spot with a 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest. Two goals from Diogo Jota were cancelled out by former Reds defender Neco Williams and Morgan Gibbs-White, but Mohamed Salah secured victory with his 182nd goal for the club to move joint-sixth with Robbie Fowler on the club’s all-time goalscorers list. The result moved Liverpool within six points of fourth-placed Newcastle, and brought up manager Jurgen Klopp’s 100th league win at Anfield. Klopp praised his team’s counter-pressing moments and noted that it felt like the first time this season that they had achieved that. Jota’s return to form lessened the defensive deficiencies, and Forest have now lost the last five away from home and have taken just three points from the last 30 on offer as their slide back to the Sky Bet Championship continues. Manager Steve Cooper was frustrated by the set-piece goals conceded, but acknowledged that his team had minimised Liverpool to very few open-play chances.
