Luton Town v Liverpool Preview
Luton Town’s Form
Plenty expected Luton to struggle this season, and while they currently occupy 18th in the Premier League, four points from their last five league games have them just one point away from getting out of the relegation zone.
Luton were comfortably beaten in the Premier League last weekend 3-1 against Aston Villa. In that game they had only 30% of the ball and created an XG of 0.48, meaning an own-goal in the 83rd minute from Martinez was only a consolation goal.
Before the Aston Villa game, they showed tremendous resilience to come from 2-0 behind against Nottingham Forest where goals from Ogbene (83rd minute) and Adebayo (92nd minute) grabbed them a point away from home.
Luton’s last and only victory of this league season came on the 30th of September where they defeated Everton 1-2. On that day, early goals from Lockyer and Morris were enough to give them the victory.
Luton have shown themselves to be tough opposition in recent weeks as they have not been beaten by more than two goals in their last eight league games.

Liverpool, following a relatively poor season last year, have recovered with seven victories and two draws from their opening ten league games. They currently occupy 4th-place in the table and look well positioned to challenge at the top of the table again with just three points between them and early season league leaders Tottenham.
The Reds comfortably beat Nottingham Forest 3-0 last weekend through goals from Jota, Nunez and Salah. It was a deserved victory with them having 73% of the ball and creating an XG of 3.19 to Forest’s 0.45.
That victory over Luton made it two league wins on the spin following their 2-0 victory over Everton in the Merseyside Derby on Saturday, October 21st with a brace from Mo Salah the difference between the sides.
Liverpool beat Bournemouth in the EFL Cup midweek meaning a victory in this one would make it five victories in a row in all competitions.

Key Players To Watch
Chiedozie Ogbene – Luton Town
The Irish Sensation had to bide his time at the beginning of the season, only playing 54 minutes in Luton’s opening four league games. However, since then he has become a regular fixture in the side playing 90 minutes in their last six league games, including a goal in their 2-2 draw against Nottingham Forest.
Ogbene is growing with every game and has already shown tremendous versatility playing across six positions. It’s his pace and dribbling which are his biggest assets with him clocking one of the fastest sprints this season at 36.93 kph. His 6.01 Progressive Carries Per 90 is in the 97th percentile also.
Darwin Nunez – Liverpool
Following a difficult first season at the club Darwin Nunez is finally starting to showcase the productivity expected of him when he first signed with six goals and five assists in his opening thirteen matches in all competitions this season.
Nunez scored in Liverpool’s latest league victory against Nottingham Forest to take his tally in the league this season to four goals and three assists in nine games.
Luton Town v Liverpool Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: Luton Town 1-2 Liverpool
For me this is another really interesting tie, Luton knows if they can utilise home advantage and avoid defeat they could climb out of the relegation zone following four points earned in their last five games.
Liverpool could potentially go level with top-of-the-table Tottenham with a victory here and with their flying form, file it under the category of likely.
Something tells me that Luton will have a better go of it than many might expect though.
Best Bet: Luton +2 @ 23/20
