Liverpool could be a tougher nut to crack for Forest this time out than either Arsenal or Leicester were. The Reds are on a real roll after a run of recent results which has seen them close the gap behind Premier League leaders Man City to just one point.

The seven-time FA Cup winners have had a relatively straightforward route to this year's quarter-finals, having eased past Shrewsbury, Cardiff and Norwich to get to this stage. Forest will be hoping Liverpool's mid-week exertions may prove a match too far in quick succession. That said, star man and top scorer Mo Salah started Wednesday's game against Arsenal on the bench and could be fresh for the XI for this evening's cup clash.

The match is free on ITV, 10Play and on paid subscription on ESPN+. Here's how to get a Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool live stream and watch this FA Cup fixture online from wherever you are.
