Diogo Jota scored the only goal of the game as Liverpool produced one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the FA Cup. The Championship side was the better of the teams and missed a golden opportunity when Philip Zinckernagel missed a sitter from eight yards out. In front of a sellout crowd, Forest kept the Premier League side quiet until Jota scored in the 78th minute. They were drawn against Manchester City in the semi-finals.

Managers Reaction 

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: “We have Watford, Benfica, City, Benfica, City, United, Everton (after the international break). From a Liverpool perspective, these are all massive games and we try to play them one at a time and not all together. We knew before the game City would be the opponent if we wanted to go to the final anyway. Now here we go. The further you go in whichever competition the more likely you are you will face City at one point. I don’t think we are the dream draw for anyone, but it will be a tough tie and we have to make sure it will be tough for City as well. But there are a lot of games to play before that.”
