Brentford vs Luton TownEnglish Premier League, KO: 15:00 Dec 2, 2023, Gtech Community Stadium
Brentford will be aiming to snap a mini slump as they welcome Luton Town to the Gtech Community Stadium for a Premier League fixture on Saturday. The Bees have done some good work at home in recent weeks and should have the edge over Luton Town.
Brentford have been on a bad run in recent weeks having lost their last two Premier League matches. First they were beaten 3-0 at Liverpool before falling to a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal in their previous fixture.
Having claimed three straight victories prior to those two defeats, Brentford will be keen to make a swift return to winning ways. Thomas Frank’s men had won at Stamford Bridge and also eased past another newly promoted side as they triumphed 3-0 over Burnley.
The Gtech Community Stadium has always been a good hunting ground for Brentford, who have won two of their last three home matches. However, defending remains a problem having kept just one clean sheet in their last seven matches in front of their fans.
Of the three newly promoted teams in the Premier League, Luton Town appear to be the ones handling the rigours of topflight football well. They have picked up two wins so far and are four points clear of the relegation zone.
One of Luton Town’s wins came last time out as they picked up a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace in their previous Premier League fixture. The clash came to life after the break with efforts from Teden Mengi and Jacob Brown earning them the win.
Luton Town have also picked up a win on their travels this season, claiming a 2-1 victory at Everton back in September. However, Rob Edwards’ men have lost five of their seven away matches this season and were beaten 1-0 by Manchester United in their previous fixture on the road.

Head to head

Players to watch
Bryan Mbeumo remains the most dangerous attacker for Brentford and will be looking to add to his six Premier League goals this season. The forward could be worth keeping an eye to score anytime at 13/10 by bet365.
Luton Town will be keen to capitalise on Brentford’s defensive problems and Carlton Morris could be the one to watch on Saturday. The striker has three Premier League goals this season and is priced at 3/1 by Unibet to get on the score sheet.
Anything else catch the eye?
Brentford and Luton Town have shown little defensive solidity this season and both teams could be backed to score at 10/11 by bet365. Luton have seen over 2.5 goals in three of their last four matches and a repeat is priced at odds of 3/4 by 888Sport while over 3.5 goals could also be considered at 15/8 by Paddy Power.
Given the minimal odds for a straight Brentford victory, a win and over 2.5 goals should offer more value at 6/5 with BoyleSports.
