Taiwo Awoniyi scores against his former club Liverpool to move Nottingham Forest off the bottom of EPL table



Taiwo Awoniyi was a Liverpool player for seven years but never made an appearance for them..

Today, he came back to haunt his former club

Nottingham Forest moved off the bottom of the Premier League table with a shock 1-0 win over Liverpool thanks to Taiwo Awoniyi’s goal early in the second half.

Amid a frenzied atmosphere at the City Ground, Steve Cooper’s side competed throughout to earn their first win since August as Liverpool’s recent revival was dramatically halted. Jurgen Klopp’s wait for a first away win of the Premier League season continues.

It was a disjointed performance throughout by Liverpool. Robbed of Darwin Nunez as well as Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota, it was left to Mohamed Salah to lead the way but the best chances all fell to Virgil van Dijk – with Dean Henderson saving brilliantly from him in stoppage time.

The scenes of celebration at full-time were extraordinary, belief renewed that Forest can really enjoy rather than merely endure their return to the Premier League. Only goal difference keeps them out of the drop zone. Liverpool? They stay seventh.
