Luton Town v Wolverhampton Wanderers Predicted Line-Ups & News
The Hatters displayed diligence in their latest match, even though they suffered a 1-0 defeat against Fulham. However, Edwards is well aware that determination alone won’t be sufficient to secure their place in the top flight, as they prepare to return to Kenilworth Road to face Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Team News: Luton Town
Luton Town had hoped that their home form would be their saving grace in the Premier League this season. Unfortunately, their sole previous home league outing ended in a disappointing 2-1 loss to West Ham, serving as a stark reminder of the challenges of the top flight.
There isn’t much historical precedent to draw upon for this matchup, as it’s the first league meeting between Luton and Wolves since 2007. However, there was an FA Cup clash in 2013, when Luton, then in the Conference, secured a memorable 1-0 victory over Wolves, who were in the Championship at the time.
Luton Town Predicted Lineup
Thomas Kaminski, Tom Lockyer, Amari’i Bell, Reece Burke, Mads Juel Andersen, Issa Kaboré, Marvelous Nakamba, Tahith Chong, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Carlton Morris, Jacob Brown.
Team News: Wolverhampton Wanderers
Both Luton and Wolverhampton Wanderers have experienced dramatic changes in their fortunes since their last meeting. Luton has enjoyed a fairytale rise to the top flight, while Wolves made headlines by competing in the Europa League.
However, Wolves’ European adventures seem like a distant memory, as they’ve struggled in the Premier League, losing four of their first five games this season, with just one win. Their biggest issue has been in defence, with only one clean sheet in their last five matches.
In their recent encounter against Liverpool, they conceded three goals, leading manager Gary O’Neil to criticize the “crazy goals” they let in.
Wolverhampton Wanderers Predicted Lineup
Luton fans pray to Mads Andersen
For Luton Town, keep an eye on Mads Andersen, who is the scorer of their only Premier League goal at Kenilworth Road this season. With a penchant for headers, he’s a formidable presence in aerial duels and will be key in the heart of defence and going forward.
He will be battling with Nelson Semedo, who is one of only eight Premier League players with ten or more fouls to their name, resulting in three yellow cards. Their set-piece battle is one of the storylines that can decide the outcome of this fixture.
