The 2023/24 Premier League season is under way and you can follow every game and every goal right here with The Independent.

Liverpool host Nottingham Forest on Sunday and emotions will be running high at Anfield, after the news that the parents of star forward Luis Diaz were kidnapped in Colombia. Diaz is naturally left out of the team as the club support his welfare.

In on-pitch matters, Liverpool are in the top four and can move to within three points of league leaders Spurs with a win, while Forest can go 11th if they cause an upset - though they’ve only won once on the road so far this term.

Nunez scores as Liverpool show support for Diaz in win over Forest

Liverpool showed their support to Luis Diaz during a comfortable 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

Quickfire goals from Diogo Jota and Darwin Nunez before the break and Mohamed Salah’s second-half effort helped Jurgen Klopp’s side maintain their 100 per cent home record in the Premier League this season.

Jota held aloft Diaz’s number seven shirt after scoring, with the Colombian not featuring in Liverpool’s squad following reports his parents had been kidnapped in his homeland.

Liverpool’s latest victory – their eighth in a row in all competitions at Anfield – was their seventh from 10 league games this campaign and lifted them back to within three points of leaders Tottenham.

Forest rarely threatened and, although they hit the woodwork through Anthony Elanga’s late volley, they were forced to defend in numbers as their winless league run was stretched to six matches

The full-time whistle blows as Liverpool run out comfortable 3-0 victors at Anfield against a below-par Forest. Jota set them on their way to three points as he prodded home the rebound from Nunez' parried shot, before the Uruguay international netted himself just four minutes later, turning Szoboszlai's cross into the back of the net to put the hosts in control at the interval. Any chances of a Forest comeback were ended after the break, Turner making a huge error in misjudging the bounce of Szoboszlai's punt upfield, a mistake that Salah took full advantage of as he coolly finished to seal the win, one that moves Liverpool onto 23 points, just three behind leaders Tottenham. For Forest, their winless run extends to six games, a streak that Cooper will be keen to halt with his team just five points above the drop zone. That is all we have for you from Anfield, so thanks for your company and goodbye!

NO GOAL!!! The replays show that Gakpo was a good couple of yards offside and the goal is ruled out. The score remains 3-0 to Liverpool!

GOAL!!! GAKPO MAKES IT 4-0!!! With seconds remaining, another intricate move ends with Elliott firing across the face of goal. Gakpo is there in the middle, and he prods home to cap the victory for Liverpool! There will be a VAR check, though...

We are into four minutes of additional time. Forest are finally showing some attacking intent, though it has come far too late for it to have any impact

Another chance for Forest goes begging as another cross finds Elanga at the back post, but this time, his volley never troubles Alisson's goal as he smashes over and into the stands.

OFF THE BAR! Yates' deep cross picks out Elanga at the back post. The former Manchester United man catches his left-footed volley sweetly, but the ball crashes off the woodwork and away from danger.
