The stats behind our Man City vs Luton predictions:

  • Eight of Luton’s previous nine Premier League away games have seen both teams score.
  • Luton Town lost four of their last five Premier League road games (two of the most recent three by a one-goal margin).
  • Man City are unbeaten in each of their last 40 home games in all competitions (W34 D6).

Erling Haaland to make Luton pay again?

These two sides went head-to-head in a thrilling FA Cup tie in February with Erling Haaland finding the back of the net fives times in a 6-2 win at Kenilworth Road.

The Norwegian became the first Premier League player to score or assist 30+ goals across all competitions with that haul and will have teammate Kevin De Bruyne to thank for three of them, as City’s playmaker provided the assist for each of his first three goals. The Belgian has been in incredible form since his return from injury, being directly involved in nine goals in just 11 Premier League appearances this season, scoring three and assisting six. He’s averaging a goal or assist every 75 minutes this term, the best rate of any player (min. 500 minutes).

This weekend’s match won’t be any easier for Luton, with Man City unbeaten in each of their last 40 home games in all competitions (W34 D6) and are now just two matches from equalling their club record. The Hatters also have never won an away league match against the reigning top-flight champions in 16 attempts (D3 L13) and are one of two sides yet to keep a clean sheet away from home this term, so expect City to add to their goal difference here.

Man City vs Luton match tip

Phil Foden  to score anytime @ 13/10 with Bet365

Phil Foden has scored nine goals in his last nine Premier League games, while his overall total of 14 is his best ever return in a single Premier League campaign. Another goal here would see him become the second youngest player after Erling Haaland to score 50 PL goals for Man City and make it five goals in his last three matches across all competitions, including a hat-trick against Villa and a superb strike against Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Luton have never won an away league match against the reigning top-flight champions in 16 attempts (D3 L13), but are best priced 30/1 to cause a huge upset here.
