Liverpool player ratings gallery: One player scores 3/10 as four land 5/10 vs Nottingham Forest

The player ratings from Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

Liverpool suffered a shock defeat at the City Ground on Saturday to continue their disappointing start to the season.

The Reds created very little in the East Midlands and were made to pay for their defensive errors by a Nottingham Forest side desperate to pick up from a poor start.

Taiwo Awoniyi scored the all-important winner, turning home a rebound off the post in the 55th minute, when Liverpool were undone by a free-kick.

Jurgen Klopp’s men played a high line for the set-piece, and when Fabinho lost his man on the far side, the Reds came undone with a simple low cross.

In truth, Liverpool didn’t deserve much more, failing to trouble their hosts for the most part, despite creating some good set-piece openings, and while Forest did very well defensively, they will have been surprised by quite how easy it was to keep the Reds at bay here.

It’s yet another blow for Klopp’s men in what has been a hugely disappointing start to the season, and here we have the player ratings from the clash.
