LIVERPOOL are rock-bottom of the Premier League table… for results gained in 2023.
And quite incredibly, it’s former strugglers Nottingham Forest who lead the way after a stunning turnaround under Steve Cooper.
Liverpool have picked up just one point in four games this year.
Despite signing Cody Gakpo, the Reds have been unable to strike up a winning formula on the field.
And following their 3-0 hammering at Wolves, Jurgen Klopp’s men boast an awful goal difference of minus eight.
But up the other end of the table, Forest are flying high thanks to their brilliant January.

Interestingly, league leaders Arsenal are next with just seven points after dropping points to Newcastle and Everton.
They have the same amount as Wolves and Fulham, who are both picking up pace after some good results.
The bottom half of the 2023 Premier League table starts with Newcastle in 11th, with the Magpies picking up a number of draws.
Chelsea are level on six points, a below-par effort for six games played.
