Luton Town vs Newcastle United

, KO: 15:00 Dec 23, 2023, Kenilworth Road
Newcastle United

Newcastle United will be looking to snap out of a difficult spell as they travel to Kenilworth Road for a Premier League clash with Luton Town. The Magpies are dealing with extensive injury problems but should still have enough to get past Luton, who are still struggling to cope with the quality of the topflight.

Luton Town are most likely still feeling the effects of the Tom Lockyer incident at the Vitality Stadium last week. The game was abandoned at 1-1 after the captain suffered a cardiac arrest, although he is reported to be stable and responsive.

The Hatters will now attempt the difficult task of putting that horrible situation behind them and focus on improving their form in the league. They are currently in the relegation zone having lost four of their last five matches.

Things are not much better for Luton Town at Kenilworth Road, where they have picked up just one win all season. Rob Edwards’ men were beaten by Arsenal and Manchester City in their last two home matches, although they did show some fight in both fixtures.

Newcastle United are dealing with an extensive injury list which has seen them suffer a dip in form in recent weeks. Anthony Gordon is the latest player to be sidelined, having been taken off as the Magpies were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Chelsea on Tuesday.

While things are undoubtedly rough for Newcastle United, they have managed to pick up a few key wins in recent times. Eddie Howe’s men have won three of their last five Premier League matches and claimed a 3-0 victory over Fulham last time out.

A major problem for Newcastle United is their record away from home having earned just one win on their travels this season. However, that win was an impressive 8-0 victory over promoted Sheffield United.

How the bookies view it

Despite their many problems, Newcastle United are still considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies and are priced at 8/13 to claim the win. A victory for Luton Town is valued at 4/1 by Paddy Power while a draw is set at odds of 7/2 by bet365.

Head to head

Newcastle United have a 10-6 advantage with seven draws from 23 previous matches against Luton Town. The last meeting between both teams was an FA Cup clash in 2018 which ended 3-1 in favour of the Magpies.

Players to watch

Elijah Adebayo is the leading scorer for Luton Town having found the net in the last two matches at Kenilworth Road. The striker is priced 4/1 by Unibet to maintain his scoring run on Saturday.

Callum Wilson has held his own for Newcastle United in the midst of their struggles and has now scored seven Premier League goals this season. The striker had also been on target four times in the last five Premier League away matches and is priced at 6/5 by bet365 to maintain his scoring run.

Anything else catch the eye?

Luton Town and Newcastle United have struggled to maintain their discipline at the back lately and both teams could be tipped to score at 5/6 with Unibet. There have been over 2.5 goals in Luton's last two home matches and a repeat is priced at 8/11 with BetVictor.

Given Newcastle United’s minimal odds for a straight victory, win and over 2.5 goals could be considered for more value at 6/4 with bet365.
