Team News

Luton
Man City
  • Luton will continue to be without Dan Potts, Mads Andersen and Reece Burke, but the likes of Tom Lockyer, Marvelous Nakamba and Albert Sambi Lokonga are edging closer to returns from injury.
  • Elijah Adebayo could lead the line ahead of Carlton Morris again here, having scored against Arsenal in midweek.
  • Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola remains without Kevin De Bruyne, but Jack Grealish and, more importantly, Rodri, can return from suspension.
  • City have lost each of the three of the Premier League matches Rodri has missed through suspension this season.

Prediction

  • Despite a rallying effort, Rob Edwards' Luton side fell to a 4-3 defeat at home to Arsenal in the dying seconds of Tuesday night's clash.
  • The Hatters have now lost four of their last six Premier League matches, and head into this one just two points clear of safety.
  • Manchester City's poor run of form continued as Aston Villa extended their winning streak at home to 14 consecutive matches at Villa Park on Wednesday evening.
  • That defeat means City are without a victory in four league matches. Pep Guardiola's side will head into this one in fourth place, six points off leaders Arsenal.
  • Luton certainly pose a threat, but the visitors should really get back on track here.

  • To make matters worse for City they have a very poor subs bench so no one to bring on to change the game.

  • @Marbella :P oh I don't know...Phillips and Nunes must be extremely fresh...Stones, Lewis, Gomez and Akanji will surely shore up midfield...Bobb will defo make an appearance and them couple of keepers can play false nines...Pep loves a challenge, remeber?? lol...

  • :P

  • Gvardiol at left-back is the mystery of Pep to allow any team chances for perfect crosses

  • @koziol.mutant wow...perfect analysis...:D City's instinctively must pass backwards kills any joy of watching them play...

  • @AramisMick I don't know what City team are you used to watch but since the beginning of the Guardiola era they barely cross or shoot outside the box, they are always passing to each other even passing to the back. To be fair the only one capable of doing crosses was Cancelo

  • @AramisMick I mean how on earth would you put a typical central defender as a wing-back? Imagine Nesta, Stam, Pallister, Keown, etc playing that.

  • @koziol.mutant You don't know what you are talking about, Gvardiol have played plenty on the left even before joining City

  • Guardiola said the Haaland injury is a 'bone stress reaction' and that he could miss wednesdays CL game at Red Star Belgrade.

  • Ederson, Walker (C), Dias, Ake, Gvardiol, Rodrigo, Kovacic, Bernardo, Foden, Grealish, Alvarez SUBS | Ortega Moreno, Carson, Phillips, Stones, Gomez, Akanji, Nunes, Bobb, Lewis

  • It's raining heavily and steadily at Kenilworth Road.

  • Man City will be WITHOUT their star striker Erling Haaland for today's trip to Luton.The Norwegian star has started every Premier League game for City this season

  • @Marbella hahaha....Pep seriously needs to get off this Challenge mode and get back to Career mode ....he might like to try 7 defenders + 2 goalkeepers + Rodri in the starting line up but that is a terrible idea Pep....

  • Issa Kaboré is on loan from Man City he should not be in the predicted lineup as he is ineligible for this match against his parent club

  • Luton to score and probably score first

  • Luton have awful defence. ice-hockey style 2-5 ;)

  • @koziol.mutant now less sure, rain and posession-based City line-up, they can live with 2-0, thats will be my cover

  • Luton 1-0... Pep sacked in the morning

  • Should be 0-6 City domination...but likely a single goal win...the robot better get a hattrick or his golden boot may slip off...

  • 1-3 City. Haaland to score a brace.

  • 3-2 city

  • Both teams have scored in 5 of Lutons 6 home games this season.
