Newcastle United vs Luton Town

, KO: 15:00 Feb 3, 2024, St James’ Park
Luton Town

Newcastle United host Luton Town in a Premier League fixture on Saturday with both teams looking to maintain their recent good form. Luton are playing well lately and expected to make things difficult but Newcastle will be relying on their superior quality and should have the upper hand here.

Newcastle United are not playing at the level they did last season, although they have been plagued by constant injuries across the squad. Eddie Howe’s men are currently seventh on the standings and appear to be heading towards an obscure mid-table finish.

While Newcastle United have had their problems this season, they appear to be picking up their form in recent weeks. They have claimed three wins in their last four matches and ran out 3-1 winners at Aston Villa in their previous Premier League fixture.

If Newcastle United are to make a late push for the European places, they will need to rediscover their home form having lost their last two matches at St James’ Park. However, prior to those two defeats, they had picked up seven straight wins in front of their fans.
The Magpies will be looking to channel those performances having beaten the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal in that run
Luton Town were rampant last time out in the Premier League as they ran out 4-9 winners over Brighton. Elijah Adebayo helped himself to a hat-trick while Chiedozie Ogbene was also on target.

That result extends Luton Town’s recent good form as they are unbeaten in seven of their last eight matches across all competitions. They have won the last three in that run and are now one point above the relegation zone.

A slight blemish for Luton Town is their away form having picked up two wins on their Premier League travels this season. Rob Edwards’ men have been beaten six times on the road this season but will take some confidence from their last two away matches as they earned a 3-2 victory at Sheffield United before a 1-1 draw at Burnley.

How the bookies view it

Newcastle United have been installed as overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 4/9 by Coral. A victory for Luton Town is valued at 6/1 by Paddy Power while Unibet is offering g odds of 4/1 for a draw.

Head to head

Newcastle United have a 10-7 advantage with seven draws from 24 previous matches against Luton Town. Although Luton were 1-0 winners in the reverse fixture in December, the Magpies claimed a 3-1 victory in an FA Cup clash at St James’ Park back in 2018.

Players to watch

With strikers Alexander Isak and Callum Wilson out injured, much of Newcastle United's attacking threat will fall on Anthony Gordon. The forward has three goals in his last five appearances at St James’ Park and is priced at 5/2 with Unibet to find the net on Saturday.

Elijah Adebayo will be the one to watch for Luton Town as he looks to build on his hat-trick last time out. The striker now has eight Premier League goals this season and is priced at 4/1 by Paddy Power to maintain his scoring run.
