Luton Town vs Sheffield UnitedEnglish Premier League, KO: 15:00 Feb 10, 2024, Kenilworth Road
Luton Town continue their quest for survival as they host fellow strugglers Sheffield United in a Premier League fixture on Saturday. Luton appear to be coming into some good form in recent weeks and should have the edge over Sheffield, who are still finding things difficult.
Luton Town are coming off a thrilling 4-4 draw with Newcastle United last time out in the Premier League. They came from behind twice to lead thanks to efforts from Gabriel Osho, Ross Barkley, Carlton Morris and Elijah Adebayo but could not hold on for the win.
Although manager Rob Edwards will be disappointed not to have seen out the win, Luton Town are now unbeaten in their last six matches across all competitions. They have picked up three wins in their last four matches and remain one point clear of the drop zone.
Home form is often pivotal in a relegation battle and Luton Town have won twice in their last three matches at Kenilworth Road. They claimed a 4-0 victory over Brighton in their previous fixture in front of their fans.
While Luton Town appear to be getting their campaign back on track, Sheffield United continue to look doomed. They remain rooted to the foot of the table and are now 10 points from safety.
Sheffield United travel to Kenilworth Road with just one win from their last 12 Premier League matches. They have been beaten eight times in that run and suffered a 5-0 home defeat to Aston Villa in their previous fixture.
The Blades have also struggled on their travels this season and are yet to secure an away win so far. Chris Wilder’s men have lost four of their last five away matches and were beaten 3-2 by Crystal Palace in their previous fixture on the road.
How the bookies view it
Luton Town have been installed as overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 3/4 by bet365. An unlikely victory for Sheffield United is priced at 7/2 with BetVictor while a draw is set at odds of 3/1 by Betfred.
Head to head
