Luton Town vs Brighton & Hove Albion

, KO: 19:45 Jan 30, 2024, Kenilworth Road
Brighton & Hove Albion

Fresh from progressing to the fifth round of the FA Cup, Luton Town and Brighton & Hove Albion square off in a midweek Premier League fixture. Brighton have shown some quality on their recent travels and should have the edge over Luton, who have been unconvincing at home lately.

Luton Town will head into Tuesday’s clash on a high after reaching the fifth round of the FA Cup. They claimed a 2-1 victory at Everton on Saturday with an own-goal from Vitalii Mykolenko and a late effort from Cauley Woodrow earning them the win.

That was the second straight win for Luton Town, who also claimed a 2-1 victory over Bolton Wanderers in the previous round of the FA Cup. The task now will be to carry that form into their Premier League as they look to begin their climb out of the relegation zone.

There has been a stark contrast between Luton Town's FA Cup displays and their form in the Premier League, with just three wins from their last 15 matches. Rob Edwards’ men have also lost three of their last four Premier League home matches and were beaten 3-2 by Chelsea last time out at Kenilworth Road.

Brighton also progressed in the FA Cup after claiming a 5-2 victory over Sheffield United last Saturday. Joao Pedro netted a hat-trick while Facundo Buonanotte and Danny Welbeck were also on target.

While things are going great in the FA Cup, Brighton have been a bit out of sorts in the league. Roberto De Zerbi’s men have picked up just one win from their last six Premier League matches, although they have only lost once in that run.

Brighton have done some decent work on recent travels and will be feeling confident heading to Kenilworth Road. Prior to the win at Sheffield United, they had claimed a 4-2 victory at Stoke City in the previous round of the FA Cup.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have installed Brighton as overwhelming favourites with a win priced at 7/10 by 10bet. A victory for Luton Town is valued at 4/1 by 888Sport while a draw is set at odds of 10/3 by bet365.

Head to head

Luton Town have a 6-4 advantage with two draws from 12 previous matches against Brighton. However, the Seagulls claimed a 4-1 victory in the reverse fixture back in August with Joao Pedro among the goals.

Players to watch

Elijah Adebayo is the leading scorer for Luton Town with five goals and can be a threat from crosses and set pieces, which Brighton often struggle with. The striker is priced at 33/10 by Unibet to find the net on Tuesday.

Joao Pedro has been brilliant for Luton Town in recent weeks and heads into Tuesday’s clash with seven goals in his last five matches across all competitions. The forward was also on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 17/10 by Unibet to maintain his scoring run.

Anything else catch the eye?

There were over 4.5 goals in the reverse fixture and a similar outcome is priced at 7/2 by BoyleSports while over 3.5 goals could also be considered at 8/5 by Unibet. Brighton scored in both halves in the reverse fixture and could be set for a repeat at 7/5 with Paddy Power.

Brighton are priced at minimal odds for a straight victory, so a win and both teams to score could be considered at 21/10 by William Hill.
