A game rearranged due to Liverpool’s involvement in the EFL Cup Final, the Reds welcome Luton two points clear at the top of the table, and four points clear of champions Manchester City in third. Pep Guardiola’s side play before Liverpool host Luton. Jurgen Klopp’s men recently saw a long unbeaten run come to an end with a 3-1 defeat against Liverpool, but they bounced back to beat Burnley and Brentford last time out.
Meanwhile, Luton recently saw their own unbeaten run end, which may have them slightly worried. Although two of their three unbeaten games were draws, it came at a time when the teams around them were losing. The Hatters are in the relegation zone but one point adrift of safety. Last time out, Luton lost 2-1 to Manchester United, their second loss on the bounce.

Liverpool vs Luton match tip
Liverpool hasn’t been so much of a first-half side this season, being level at the break in 13 of their 25 in the Premier League. That also means that in half, they weren’t level; those numbers are split between wins and losses. However, what is more certain is that Liverpool step things up after the break. The Reds have “won” the second half in 18 Premier League games this season.
Liverpool vs Luton Bet-Builder tip
Some fans may have been worried about Liverpool’s attack without Mohamed Salah, but they did alright, thanks to Diogo Jota. The Portuguese forward scored five goals across a six-game period before sustaining a knee injury in Liverpool’s recent win at Brentford, a match that saw Salah return from his own injury and find the net again: his fifth goal in six appearances. But Luton isn’t too bad in front of goal themselves, scoring in each of their past six away games across all competitions.
