The power went to Liverpool, but the Firmino-Elliott could not create that opportunity in the first half in front of Nottingham’s tidy defense. Firmino got the biggest chance in the first half, but the Brazilian forward was too late to take a shot thinking he was offside in the 30th minute.
Henderson, Thiago, Diaz and Minamino were dropped by the club as the team could not take advantage in the second half. However, Forrest got the biggest opportunity in the second half. In the 7th minute, Forrest’s winger Zinkarnagel touched the foot of the cross from the right, but it went out of the post for a short while!
Nottingham Forest then scored the goal. Liverpool forward Diego Jota wrapped the ball in the net with his foot on the cross of Simikas from the left side. Whether he was offside was doubtful, but VAR’s analysis revealed that the shoe was not offside.
In the end, Forrest also missed two great opportunities.
