Luton Town v Aston Villa – Football & Racing News – Star Sports

Amidst a string of difficult fixtures against top clubs, Rob Edwards’ Luton Town refuse to go down without a fight and their latest scrap is on Saturday as they host Aston Villa, writes LEWIS WILLIAMS.

Luton arrive on Saturday after a five match winless streak across all competitions, however, this dry spell probably doesn’t do the side justice of their performances.

Thanks to that string of results, as well as Everton’s appeal rewarding them with four points, Luton stare into the abyss of relegation and are now 4/7 to be playing in the Championship next season, four points adrift of the safe zone.

Signs of life are aplenty for Rob Edwards’ men though, and the Hatters have collected nine goals in their last five appearances amidst a tough patch of fixtures which have included Newcastle, Chelsea and Manchester City.

Most recently, visitors to Luton were Pep’s Manchester City and after a first half Haaland hat trick life was looking dim for Luton. That was until Jordan Clark provided Kenilworth Road residents (literally) with some much needed spark and threatened to pull off the impossible with a mighty strike from nearly 40 yards and a clinical finish in the second half which set the fans alight and reduced the deficit to just one.

However, Luton were put back in their place quickly with Erling’s normal service resuming and City powered clear to record a 6-2 scoreline.

That wasn’t the first time Luton put a top club under pressure before faltering. They won the first half at Anfield and threatened many opportunities against Manchester United.

It would be a shame for any neutral football fan to see Luton get relegated this season and for the Premier League to miss out on their bullish and entertaining football next time round.

The aforementioned fixture list for Luton doesn’t get any easier as Unai Emery’s Villa are the latest visitors to Kenilworth Road. The Spaniard has somewhat steadied the ship lately with two consecutive wins after a difficult period that resulted in their exit from the FA Cup as well as home defeats to Newcastle, Manchester United, and Chelsea.

The Villains are now 17/20 to finish in the top 4 and Ollie Watkins seems like an inevitability to pounce on a leaky Luton defence that has let in 19 goals in their last five games in all competitions.

However, at a bigger price at

, it’s Douglas Luiz who I’m more interested in scoring at any time. The Brazilian put two past Nuno’s Nottingham last week and has already smashed his goal tally of last season with 12 games still to play. His stock has risen significantly from the low-key 16 million Euros he was purchased for and there’s a lot more to come this season.

VERDICT
An Over 3.5 goal slip has paid out in five of Luton’s last six fixtures with a total goal count of 32 in the same period. The explosive nature of Luton’s style will also suit the wide-pouncing tendencies of Emery’s men and with Bailey and Ramsey supporting Watkins I see yet another goalscoring bonanza at Kenilworth Road. Over 3.5 is a bet at 21/20 with starsports.bet
