Luton – Manchester Utd Predictions and Preview

  • Eleven years ago, Luton suffered their lowest-ever finish in the English pyramid when they came seventh in the fifth-tier ‘Conference Premier’, while Manchester United were crowned English champions for a record 20th time. With the pair now both Premier League clubs, Kenilworth Road plays host to this matchup in league form for the first time since 1992, with the Hatters still in desperate need of points to keep their heads above water in the relegation battle.
  • Rob Edwards’ men enter the round just one point clear of Everton in the bottom-three, but the Welshman was left to lament that his side “weren’t our usual selves” in a 3-1 home defeat to lowly Sheffield United. That was arguably Luton’s most disappointing result of the season, not least because it was the first time this season they lost a league game on home soil by more than a one-goal margin!
  • Visiting Manchester United will be all too aware of what a tricky away trip this can be, as Luton have already run some strong clubs close. The Red Devils should be confident regardless as they’re in the midst of some excellent form after winning at Aston Villa last weekend, ending a 13-match winless record on the road against top-nine sides in the Premier League (D2, L11) under Erik ten Hag.
  • After winning their last four away matches, United could make it five in succession for the first time since October 2020. It has already been a good week off the pitch with the news that Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s partial takeover has been approved, and Ten Hag’s men look well placed to keep the good news coming as they head into this clash unbeaten from their last 14 league games against newly-promoted sides (W13, D1). That includes 11 successive victories, three of which arrived this season.
  • Players to watch: Luton striker Carlton Morris scored a second-half goal in last week’s defeat, and as a result five of his six strikes this season have come after the break. By netting the opener against Villa, United frontman Rasmus Højlund became the second-youngest player in Premier League history to score in five successive games behind Nicolas Anelka.
  • Hot stat: Manchester United are the only team in the division yet to trail an away league game at half-time this season (HT: W4, D8).
