Where: Kenilworth Road, Luton, EnglandWhen: Sunday, November 5, 6:30 pm CET
The Hatters have been one of the top candidates for relegation, and to be perfectly honest if they don’t improve in the near future, they could be on the way to the Championship pretty soon. Meanwhile, the Reds look good and confident, keeping the pace with the top teams, and staying in the title race. Jurgen Klopp’s boys are sharp on the offensive end, and break the rivals with offensive-minded strategy.
Luton vs. Liverpool Preview
The Hatters are without a win in the past four games, winning just one point of a possible 12. At first, they would lose to Burnley at home, 1-2, then to Tottenham also at Kenilworth, 0-1, before playing 2-2 against Forest in Nottingham. Their most recent defeat was against Aston Villa in Birmingham, 3-1.
They are one of three teams without a win at home, posting one tie and three defeats in four meetings so far. The goal difference is 3-6, telling us that the Hatters prefer not to play efficient meetings.
In five games at Kenilworth this year, Luton managed to score in each but the latest one against Tottenham. The team lacks Premiership experience, and it’s obvious that they still haven’t found a way to adapt to all the requirements of playing at the highest possible level.
The Reds have eight victories in the previous 10 appearances, with one tie and one loss, the one vs. Tottenham, which was a direct consequence of poor officiating. For the moment, Klopp’s crew has three triumphs in a row, four over the previous five meetings.
The efficiency of Liverpool’s matches is extremely high and there aren’t too many teams in Europe with such a potent offense. Nine of the latest ten encounters saw over 2.5 hits, and in the same number of clashes Liverpool scored two or more hits.
Klopp uses all of his forwards perfectly for the moment, and each one has his role, without a notable leader. Even though Salah stands as the biggest star, you can’t notice that on the field.

Luton vs. Liverpool Predictions
Luton is a massive underdog, and despite their defensive-minded approach, they won’t stand a chance against the Reds’ attack. Nunez, Salah, Szoboszlai, all these guys are elite attackers, so Liverpool’s victory comes out of the question here.
