Liverpool have struggled but Mohamed Salah's still having a season! Winners & losers as Egyptian King combines with Diogo Jota to see off Nottingham Forest
Liverpool may still be nowhere near as convincing as they would like to be, but boy do they have a special player in Mohamed Salah.
The Reds' Egyptian King, as he has been so often, was decisive at Anfield here, his 70th-minute goal enough to finally see off Nottingham Forest and keep Liverpool's Champions League qualification hopes flickering. It also moves Salah level with Robbie Fowler on the club's all-time scoring list.
With a scoreline of 3-2, this game was as nervy as it sounds. Liverpool led twice through Diogo Jota, whose goalscoring resurgence continues, but Forest twice hit back through deflected strikes, first from ex-Red Neco Williams and then from Morgan Gibbs-White.
But with Anfield tense, up popped Salah, steering home a Trent Alexander-Arnold free-kick in front of the Kop. Goal No.183 of a quite remarkable spell on Merseyside, and enough to give his team a precious, and hard-fought, three points.
