Luton Town and Manchester City will lock horns with each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The match between the Hatter and the Citizens will be held at Kenilworth Road and is scheduled to kick off at 2 pm UK time on Sunday.

Luton Town

Luton Town won promotion from the Championship to the Premier League at the end of last season. It was a surprise. Not many expected the Hatter to win promotion, and it would be hard to find anyone who would back Rob Edwards’s side to escape the dreaded drop to the second tier of English football.

The Hatter are 17th in the Premier League table at the moment with nine points from 15 matches. They are two points above the relegation zone. Sheffield United, Burnley and Everton are the three sides below them in the standings.

Luton will head into the Premier League match against defending champions Manchester City on the back of a 4-3 defeat to Arsenal at home in the league. It came after a 3-1 loss at the hands of Brentford in another London derby which followed a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace in front of their own fans in the Premier League.

Team News:

Luton Town are likely to line up in a 3-4-2-1 formation against Manchester City. Thomas Kaminiski will be in goal for the home team. Teden Mengi, Gabriel Osho and Amari’i Bell will be the three defenders. Issa Kabore, Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu, Ross Barkley and Alfie Doughty will be the four midfielders. Elijah Adebayo will lead the line for Luton and will have Jacob Brown and Andros Townsend behind him in attacking midfield.

Manchester City

Manchester City have arguably the best squad in the Premier League. Although things are not going perfectly for Pep Guardiola’s side at the moment, they are not falling far behind and will certainly be among the top sides come the end of the season.

City are third in the Premier League table at the moment with 30 points from 14 matches. The defending champions are six points behind leaders Arsenal, who have played 15 matches. Liverpool are a point ahead of City in second, having played 14 games.

The Citizens will take on Aston Villa away from home at Villa Park in the Premier League on Wednesday evening. City played out a 3-3 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium in the league this past weekend. It came after a 3-2 victory over RB Leipzig at the Etihad Stadium in the UEFA Champions League.

Team News:

John Stones could start for Manchester City against Luton Town. Rodri and Jack Grealish will be available after serving their suspension against Aston Villa.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Erling Haaland has scored 14 goals and given 4 assists in 14 Premier League matches for Manchester City.
  • Julian Alvarez has scored 4 goals and provided 5 assists in 14 Premier League matches for Manchester City.
  • Luton Town have won 2 out of 15 Premier League games this season.
  • Luton Town have conceded 30 goals in 15 Premier League games this season.
  • Manchester City have scored 36 goals in 14 Premier League matches this campaign.

Conclusion

Luton Town showed against Arsenal that they are not easy pushovers. They are likely to put up a fight against Manchester City. However, it is hard to see anything but an easy win for Pep Guardiola’s side. It would be the shock of the season if Luton won against City.
