Liverpool edge pass struggling Forest with a 3-2 win

By Daniel Oriloye - Mohamed Salah scored the winner as Liverpool won a five-goal thriller against Nottingham Forest at Anfield to boost their hopes of claiming an unlikely Champions League place.

After a drab opening half, the second half was an end-to-end classic as relegation-threatened Forest twice levelled.

Diogo Jota scored twice, with former Liverpool player Neco Williams as well as Morgan Gibbs-White responding for the visitors.

Salah netted his 16th Premier League goal of the season to put Jurgen Klopp's side ahead for the third time - and another equaliser proved beyond Steve Cooper's men, who remain in the relegation zone.

Forest have now collected three points from 11 games since their last victory, which was against Leeds United in February.

They have lost four games in a row and all three since a statement released by owner Evangelos Marinakis in support of Cooper that included the line "results and performances must improve immediately".

Liverpool have picked up successive wins since the superb comeback against Arsenal a fortnight ago and with Tottenham Hotspur still to play at Anfield at the end of the month and Newcastle United stuttering of late, Klopp's men cannot be dismissed from the top-four race.
