Luton vs Arsenal odds
*Odds correct as of 15:00 on December 05
After their late win over Brentford following the international break, Arsenal are back top of the Premier League table. Of course, Arsenal fans won’t be celebrating anything right now, given how last season ended, but it’s another positive step towards potentially ending their 20-year wait for the title. The Gunners have won 10 of their 14 Premier League matches this season, with three draws and just one defeat. That loss came to Newcastle at the start of November, but Arsenal bounced back to beat Burnley, Brentford and then Wolves.
Luton, meanwhile, have opened up a little gap between themselves and the relegation zone. The Hatters looked to be destined for relegation after a disastrous start to the season, but they have been handed a bit of good fortune. Firstly, Everton’s points deduction saw the Toffees drop into the relegation zone with Luton moving up to 17th as a result. And then, as they returned from the international break, Luton beat Crystal Palace 2-1 for just their second victory of the season. The Hatters are now two points clear of the drop zone, though there is still a very long way to go.
