Mohamed Salah scored the winner as Liverpool defeated Nottingham Forest 3-2 in their English Premier League (EPL) fixture at Anfield on Saturday.

The Egyptian striker’s goal gave Jurgen Klopp’s side the lead for a third time in the match and it was enough to seal all three points.

Diogo Jota had given Liverpool the lead twice but Neco Williams and Morgan Gibbs-White strike restored parity.

After a goalless first half dominated by Liverpool, the home side took the lead two minutes into the second period when Jota headed in following a corner kick.

But a strike into the top corner by Williams, a former Liverpool player, restored parity four minutes later.

Jota, the Portuguese forward, made it 2-1 with a shot that found the bottom corner before Gibbs-White returned the favour with a similar strike in the 67th minute.

Salah settled the match three minutes later with a strike of his own from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s pass.
