Man United vs Luton Town: Red Devils aim for much-needed win in Premier League

Manchester United can climb up to 6th position in the Premier League table if they win.

Man United vs Luton Town Live: Premier League LIVE – MUN vs LUT LIVE – Manchester United will welcome the newly promoted side Luton Town to the Theatre of Dreams this weekend. The Red Devils suffered a chaotic loss in their Champions League match this midweek. They will try to get back to winning ways and improve their situation in the Premier League with a win this weekend. On the other hand, Luton Town are hovering just above the relegation zone. Hence, they will also be determined to get away with a win.

Manchester United are in deep waters after losing 9 games in their opening 17 games. This has become their worst run of record since 1973-74. After two consecutive 3-0 defeats against Man City and Newcastle United, Man United briefly came back to winning ways. 

They earned a narrow 1-0 win against Fulham in the Premier League last weekend. However, they lost 4-3 against Copenhagen after gaining a 2-0 lead in the next match. Sitting in 8th place in the league table, the Red Devils cannot afford any more point drops.

Freshly promoted from the Championship, Luton Town are not doing great in the top-flight competition. They are hovering just over the relegation zone in 17th place with just 1 win from 11 games so far. They are sharing the same points with 18th-placed Bournemouth. 

However, they boast a lesser goal difference. Luton can take great points from their last match where they stopped one of the Premier League giants, Liverpool on the track with a 1-1 draw. They can take inspiration, but the match could become tougher against a determined Man United.

  • There seems to be no end to Man United’s injury concerns. In fact, more are being added to the list as Jonny Evans was taken off in the first 15 minutes into the game in their midweek fixture with a muscular problem. 
  • In the meantime, Tyrell Malacia and Amad Diallo are nursing knee issues, Luke Shaw is suffering from a muscular injury of his own, Lisandro Martinez is suffering from a foot injury, and Casemiro is yet to recover from his hamstring issue. Jadon Sancho is also among the names who are sidelined. However, the winger is out due to disciplinary issues. 
  • The absence of Evans could see coach Ten Hag call up Raphael Varane in the centre-back position to feature alongside Harry Maguire. Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will probably continue in the left-back and right-back positions respectively. This could see Sergio Reguilon start on the bench another time.
  • If the coach decides to switch and start Marcus Rashford on the left flank, then either Antony or Facundo Pellistri will get to return to the starting XI on the right-hand side. However, that will see Alejandro Garnacho make way for the others.

Luton Town Team News

  • Luton Town have a long list of injuries of their own to worry about. Jordan Clark and Daniel Potts are suffering from ankle issues. Whereas, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Reece Burke, and Mads Anderson are yet to recover from their respective thigh injuries. However, Amari’i Bell could be featured in the match if he makes a quick recovery by then.
  • Former Manchester United graduate Tahith Chong scored his first and only goal for Luton Town against Liverpool coming off the bench. Hence, the coach could give him a chance to take to the field from the starting whistle. He could feature alongside Ross Barkley and Marvelous Nakamba in the centre midfield.
  • The coach could choose a formation with 3 midfielders against Man United. If so, newcomer Andros Townsend will be sent to sit on the bench when the match begins. Whereas, Elijah Adebayo, Jacob Brown, and Chiedozie Ogbene will compete for a place alongside Carlton Morris in the final third.
