Super Eagles striker Taiwo Awoniyi, was in the spotlight as his 55th minute goal denied Liverpool any movement in the Premier League log.
It was Nottingham Forest’s second Premier League win of the season and first since August. It was their first win against Liverpool in 30 years. Awoniyi, a former Liverpool player, put Nottingham Forest on the path of victory with his simple tap in after a rebound from his first shot bounced in front of him.
It was no more than he and Forest deserved for their efforts and the scoreline could have been more emphatic in their favour as substitute Brennan Johnson hit the post in injury time with an effort from distance after Alisson had gone up for a corner.
Forest, whose boss Steve Cooper used to coach at Liverpool, had shown up well in games against West Ham and Tottenham at the City Ground earlier this season, but this was their best display since their return to the top flight.
Their high-energy press led to a number of openings on the counter-attack, but the lack of quality at the final moment let them down.
