Luton vs Sheffield United: Top free betting tips
Luton will face Sheffield United at Kenilworth Road on Saturday, 10 February in a huge match at the bottom of the table. This match truly is a last chance saloon for the Blades after their 5-0 hammering at the hands of Aston Villa last weekend while Luton will see it as an an opportunity to move clear of Everton in 18th. Our Luton vs Sheffield United prediction is for Chris Wilder's men to succumb to another defeat on the road and to sink closer to inevitable relegation.
Match result prediction: Luton to win
Luton have surpassed all expectations this season by simply being in with a shot of avoiding relegation with three months of the season to go. Over the course of the season they have been equally as good at home as they have been away but in recent weeks they have turned things up a notch at Kenilworth Road. The Hatters have won two of their last three matches at home, including a 4-0 demolition of Brighton in their last match on home turf.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals
For the past few months, Luton have embraced the chaos and adopted a “you attack, we attack” mentality which has served them well for the most part. They have scored four goals in each of their last two matches while Kenilworth Road has seen a number of high-scoring classics already (Luton 3-4 Arsenal, Luton 2-3 Chelsea). On top of that, Sheffield United have the worst defence in the Premier League so goals won't be hard to come by on Saturday.
Correct score prediction: Luton 3-1 Sheffield United
In the reverse fixture at Bramall Lane, Luton came out on top 3-2 despite trailing twice in a result that knocked the stuffing out of Sheffield United's resurgence under Chris Wilder. We expect Luton to score at least three goals again on Saturday but we can't see the Blades nicking more than one on recent form.
Luton vs Sheffield United team news
Luton predicted lineup vs Sheffield United
Luton boss Rob Edwards, won't feel like he has much tinkering to do ahead of this match after seeing his team score four goals at St James' Park last time out. The Hatters don't have any new injury concerns coming into the game at Kenilworth Road but they are still without Marvelous Nakamba and Mads Andersen due to injury while Tom Lockyer continues his rehabilitation following a cardiac arrest.
Kaminski – Ogbene, Bell, Osho, Mengi, Doughty – Barkley, Lokonga – Clark, Morris, Adebayo
Sheffield United predicted lineup vs Luton
Chris Wilder, on the other hand, would probably like to make eleven changes after his side were embarrassed by Aston Villa on home soil last time out. Unfortunately for Wilder, he remains without his first choice goalkeeper, Ivo Grbic, and three first-team defenders, Chris Basham, John Egan and George Baldock, due to injury. Oli McBurnie, who could perhaps add some fight to the team, is also unavailable.
Foderingham (GK) – Bogle, Holgate, Ahmedhodžić, Trusty, Robinson – Souza, Davies, McAtee – Brereton-Diaz, Archer
Luton vs Sheffield United: What the fans think
Luton fans don't consider it a must-win
I am hearing a lot about Saturday being a must win game… These people are right, it is… for Sheffield United. Clearly we want to win and on our day we will, but the pressure isn't on Luton here. This is going to be a game of patience, not like the last two games #COYH
