Luton vs Man City: Top free betting tips
Luton face Man City on Sunday afternoon in a match all Hatters' fans will have been looking forward to since promotion last season. The game pits the treble winners against a side that were playing non-league football just ten years ago. Based on that alone, a Luton vs Man City prediction should be straightforward, however, anything can happen in the Premier League.
Match handicap prediction: Man City -2
If there was ever a time to play Manchester City then this is it. The Blues haven't won a league game in over a month and they are leaking goals left, right and centre. Despite that, they should surely have too much for Luton who will be exhausted after their devastating 4-3 loss to Arsenal on Tuesday night. We expect City to bounce back into form with the World Club Cup looming.
Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 goals
Both Luton and Man City have been involved in some thrilling matches so far this season. In the last month, City have been involved in a 3-3 draw and a 4-4 draw while Luton lost a seven-goal thriller earlier this week. Goals are seemingly guaranteed here so we'd push the overs market as far as you can afford.
Correct score prediction: Luton Town 1-4 Man City
We expect Luton to send Kenilworth Road into raptures on Sunday afternoon with a goal against the league champions, however, we can't see a world where Man City fail to outscore the Hatters. Erling Haaland has had a disappointing week after missing sitters against both Tottenham and Aston Villa and Luton will likely suffer the consequences of that.
Luton vs Man City team news
Luton predicted lineup vs Man City
Rob Edwards will be banking on his defence to perform better than they did against Arsenal and former Man Utd defender, Teden Mengi will be key to that. Edwards will also be hoping that Tom Lockyer is available after the Welsh defender missed the match with Arsenal due to injury. Cauley Woodrow and Marvelous Nakamaba are also doubts while Issa Kabore is ineligible against his parent club.
Kaminski – Ogbene, Bell, Lockyer, Mengi, Doughty – Barkley, Mpanzu – Townsend, Adebayo, Morris
Man City predicted lineup vs Luton Town
Pep Guardiola will instantly reinstate Rodri back into his starting eleven after the Spaniard missed the loss against Aston Villa on Wednesday night. Jack Grealish is also available again but his selection will be dependent on whether Jeremy Doku has recovered from the knock that ruled him out of the trip to Villa Park.
Ederson – Walker, Dias, Stone Ake – Rodri Bernardo, Alvarez – Foden, Haaland, Doku
