Luton vs Aston Villa: Top free betting tips

Luton will play Aston Villa in the Premier League this weekend with plenty on the line for both clubs. Luton are currently four points from safety in the battle for survival at the bottom of the table whereas Aston Villa are five points clear of Tottenham in the race for the top four. Which side will pick up the points they so desperately need on Saturday? Check out our Luton vs Aston Villa prediction below.

Match result prediction: Luton to win

Luton have been threatening a big home win all season having experienced the narrowest defeats to Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City and Man Utd at Kenilworth Road and drawing with Liverpool. We believe their time has come on Saturday and it could be a result that gives them the springboard for Premier League survival. Aston Villa's form has been sketchy in recent weeks and they look more vulnerable than they did at the start of the season which gives the Hatters a real chance.

Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 goals

Expect a classic as Luton Town have been involved in plenty of them with big teams this season. No one can accuse Rob Edwards of failing to go for it against anyone this season and 28 goals have gone been scored in Luton's last five matches combined. Aston Villa have also been involved in some high-scoring matches this season and their high line and skills in transition mean we could be in for an end-to-end thriller.

Correct score prediction: Luton 3-2 Aston Villa

It's about time that Luton Town came out as the victors in a high-scoring, you attack, we attack type of game. They are at risk of being cut adrift if they don't pick up a couple of wins in March and their home games are their best bet of doing what's needed.

Luton vs Aston Villa team news

Luton predicted lineup vs Aston Villa

Luton's injury list is creeping up in news that won't have been welcomed by Rod Edwards. Amari'i Bell was forced off against Man City in the FA Cup on Tuesday night and is expected to miss this one and there are also doubts about Gabriel Osho who missed out in the week. The pair join Andersen, Adebayo, Lokonga, Potts, Brown and Nakamaba in the treatment room while Tom Lockyer continues his rehab ahead of a potential return.

Kaminski – Ogbene, Osho, Mengi, Burke, Doughty – Clark, Barkley – Chong, Morris, Woodrow

Aston Villa predicted lineup vs Luton

Pau Torres' injury problems reared their ugly head again last weekend when he was forced off at half time against Nottingham Forest. Emery confirmed that the defender was only taken off as a precaution but he remains a doubt for this one. In terms of players who will definitely miss out, Kamara, Mings, Buendia, Duran, Carlos and Konsa are all still nursing injuries with Villa expected to line up with the same 11 as they did last weekend provided Torres proves his fitness.

Martinez – Cash, Lenglet, Torres, Moreno – Bailey, Luiz, McGinn, Ramsey –  Tielemans – Watkins
