Liverpool v Luton Betting Preview

Liverpool have racked up wins in 17 of their last 19 home matches across all competitions, while Luton Town have witnessed goals from both sides in nine of their last 10 away matches. The Reds have secured victories yet conceded in four of their last five fixtures, and haven’t managed a clean sheet in their previous seven outings at Anfield, signalling a pressing week ahead for the team.

Amid their European triumphs, Liverpool find themselves with a week off from Europa League duties but face two crucial encounters in the coming days. Before their Carabao Cup final appearance at Wembley on Sunday, they’re set to challenge Luton Town, aiming to solidify their Premier League summit position.

The Reds celebrated a 4-1 victory over Brentford recently, with Mohamed Salah making a comeback. Nonetheless, injuries pose a significant challenge, potentially sidelining up to nine players. Despite their offensive prowess, the absence of key defenders such as Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Joel Matip could impact their Wednesday match.

Luton Town’s impressive away form faces a stern test at Anfield, a fortress where very few newly promoted teams have emerged victorious in their inaugural Premier League visit. Under Jurgen Klopp’s management, Liverpool have maintained an enviable record, losing just once in their last 54 Premier League home games, securing 19 wins in their recent 24.

Luton, however, are on a commendable five-game unbeaten streak away from home, including triumphs in cup matches against Bolton and Everton, alongside a thrilling 4-4 draw at Newcastle. Despite expectations for their home ground to be formidable, Luton have experienced back-to-back home defeats, including a 3-1 loss to Sheffield United and a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United, marking their sixth loss in seven encounters with the top six this season.

Liverpool’s defensive woes continue, with the team managing only two clean sheets in their last 10 matches. Although they have won four of their last five games while conceding, the trend of both teams scoring has been present in their last seven Anfield matches.

Given their home dominance, Liverpool are favourites against a Luton side in fine scoring form. With both teams consistently finding the back of the net in recent outings, Liverpool’s attack, boosted by Salah’s return, is likely to prevail despite their defensive vulnerabilities.

Salah’s impact is anticipated to bolster Liverpool’s front line, but Luis Diaz emerges as a notable mention in the scorer’s market. With goals in his last two home appearances and five in his last nine against newly-promoted teams, including the season’s earlier clash with Luton, Diaz is a key player to watch.

Betting Tip – Liverpool to win and BTTS – 6/4. Diaz First goalscorer at 5/1
