Manchester City vs Luton

Manchester City and Luton Town square off against each other at Etihad Stadium in a David-vs-Goliath clash. The Citizens came from behind to beat Crystal Palace 4-2 at the weekend and they are seen as hot favourites to beat the Hatters in front of home fans. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Kevin De Bruyne. Who scored a brace against the Eagles, while both Manuel Akanji and Mateo Kovacic are pushing for a start. Nathan Ake and Kyle Walker remain in the recovery room.

Luton Town, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Bournemouth and they managed to get one. But their Premier League status is still in great danger. The Hatters, though, are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Man City’s party at Etihad Stadium. To make things even worse for the visitors, their injury list is still pretty long.

How the bookies view it

Unsurprisingly, Manchester City are red hot favourites here at a best-priced 1/10 with Boylesports and they are as short as 1/16 in places.

Luton Town can be backed at 29/1 with PHJOY and the draw is 11/1 with PHJOY Casino.

Recent head to heads

Luton gave City a huge scare at Kenilworth Road earlier this season by leading before losing 2-1. But they were blown away in the FA Cup as the visitors romped to a 6-2 win.

In fact, that famous win in 1983 was Luton’s last victory at Manchester City and this will be their first ever game at the Etihad.

Players to watch

Erling Haaland has had plenty of criticism this season for his play. He has only scored one goal in his last eight games for club and country. However, he is still heavy odds-on to score on Saturday at 4/9 with PHJOY Casino.

Carlton Morris was the hero for Luton last week with an injury time winner against Bournemouth. He has scored a respectable five goals in his last 12 appearances and is 5/1 to score anytime with PHJOY Casino.

Manchester City vs Luton Prediction

Luton Town moved lock on points with Nottingham Forest in the safe zone after the comeback win over Bournemouth last weekend. Rob Edwards’ men desperately need points but they’ll hope to get them in the upcoming games against Brentford, Wolves, and Everton.

The Hatters can hardly seek salvage in the away clash against title hopefuls and reigning champions Manchester City. Although we expect a significant rotation from Pep Guardiola in between the two Champions League ties with Real Madrid. The gulf in quality between these two outfits is so big that we can’t expect anything other than City’s comprehensive victory on Saturday.

The Citizens should remove all doubts about the winner by the half-time break. We will back them to win the first half by two or more goals difference at the odds of 2.45.

Erling Haaland has been in sort of a crisis of late. He did find the back of the net last weekend at Selhurst Park but his recent form has been far from ideal. That said, the Norwegian still tops the league’s scoring charts with 19 goals in 25 appearances. The match against Luton represents a perfect opportunity for him to find his form. We will back Haaland to score the first goal of the game at the attractive 3.20 odds.
