The Liverpool faithful will have been breathing a huge sigh of relief at the sight of Mohamed Salah coming off the bench in the midweek win over Arsenal.

Ibrahima Konate also returned to the squad, although there are doubts over James Milner and Kostas Tsimikas' involvement after both missed the trip to Arsenal through illness.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is out too, with an injury which will also see him miss England's upcoming games.


Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool score prediction

Forest will be eyeing a third Premier League scalp at the City Ground when Liverpool come to town, although it will be a considerably more difficult task than their previous two this campaign.

The Reds are in scintillating form as they approach the business end of the season, moving to within a point of Man City in the Premier League and looking forward to a Champions League last-eight showdown against Benfica.

Klopp isn't likely to significantly weaken his team for this weekend, so expect Liverpool to progress to the last four.

Prediction: Nottingham Forest 0-2 Liverpool
