Chris Sutton has backed Liverpool to win all three points when they take on Nottingham Forest at the City Ground at the start of tomorrow’s lunch hour.
The Reds claimed a 1-0 victory over Steve Cooper’s side in the FA Cup last season and are hoping for more of the same this time around.
Jurgen Klopp may be without star striker Darwin Nunez after he felt a strain on his hamstring during Wednesday’s 1-0 win over West Ham, but Sutton still backs the Anfield side to their third successive victory in the PremierLeague.
“Forest held out for a point at Brighton on Tuesday and got a clean sheet, which might give them a bit of confidence, but they offered very little in front of goal.” Sutton told BBC Sport.
“They need to strike the right balance between defense and attack and they badly need a win, but it’s hard to see them managing any of that against Liverpool.
“The Reds were far from great against West Ham in the middle of the week but, even if they are not at their best, I still expect them to win.”

Forest have won just once so far this season but will be keen to cause an upset in front of their home fans.
Klopp’s side defeated Manchester City last weekend in what was a great performance for the FA Cup holders and although we weren’t at our best against the Hammers earlier this week, we showed great character for resist and achieve victory.
Nunez has three goals in his last four appearances so it would be a huge blow to be without the Uruguayan’s services tomorrow, especially with Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz also sidelined at the moment.
Even if our No. 27 isn’t fit enough to play against Cooper’s team, we should still have enough quality to win the game and move up to fifth place before the rest of the Premier League matches take place. League of the weekend.
Sutton has predicted a 2-0 win for the Redmen.
