Super Sunday’s second clash is another milestone for Luton in their return to the top flight. The Hatters host a Liverpool side who have been scoring for fun of late, putting them firmly in the mix for a Premier League title challenge.
Luton are facing some injury issues, with as many as six players set to miss out against the Reds. The Hatters are set to start with their usual 3-5-2 system, with Chiedozie Ogbene and Carlton Morris up top.
As for Liverpool, Thiago Alcantara and Andy Robertson are both ruled out this weekend. With Darwin Nunez in great form, he’s expected to start up top alongside Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota.
Liverpool to win and both teams to score @ 11/8
Luton have lost three of their first four home games this term, so they’re up against it in this clash with Liverpool. The Reds have navigated a tough run of games to start the season well, sitting just three points shy of top spot heading into the weekend.
The visitors have won each of their last four matches in all competitions, while they have won 12 of their last 14 heading into Sunday’s match. Jurgen Klopp’s side are looking great going forward, scoring at least twice in all but one of those 14.
However, defensive issues are a concern for the Reds. They have seen both teams score in all seven away trips this term, while Luton have seen both teams score in five of their last six Premier League games.
An away win and both teams to score looks like the best way to go here, as the Reds’ defence can’t really be trusted. However, it’s hard to see this one being close, so consider a 4-1 win for Liverpool at 12/1.
Salah To Score & Szoboszlai To Assist A Goal @ 4/1
One tempting special to consider this weekend is Mohamed Salah to score and Dominik Szoboszlai to make an assist. The pair have been the driving force of Liverpool’s attack, so they should thrive against this Luton side.
Salah has scored 20 times in the Premier League in this calendar year and the forward has scored six times across his last five games. Meanwhile, only three players in the league have created more chances than Szoboszlai this term. He had been struggling for assists, but after setting up two goals in his last league game, he can come to the fore again and carve open the Hatters.
Liverpool head into Sunday’s clash as the 2/9 favourites for the three points, with underdogs Luton a 10/1 outsider and the draw at 11/2.
Goals are expected at Kenilworth Road, with over 2.5 priced at 4/11. Considering our 4-1 correct score tip, over 4.5 goals may also be worth a look at 2/1.
