          Luton Town vs Everton: Preview & Prediction

          Kenilworth Road hosts Luton Town and Everton in the Premier League’s Friday Night football this weekend. The Hatters are within touching distance of safety and Everton are still looking to put some more distance between themselves and the relegation zone.

          Date: 03/05/2024

          Kick off time: 20:00

          Location: Kenilworth Road

          The relegation battle is heating up with three games to go, with Luton in the thick of it as them, Burnley and Nottingham Forest all fight for 17th. Everton have managed to put themselves further out of harm's way with some big wins recently.

          Luton Town currently sit 18th in the Premier League after 35 games. The Hatters have six wins, seven draws and 22 losses, leaving them on 25 points, one point from safety.

          The Hatters have performed much better in front of goal this season, scoring 48 goals in 35 games, an average of 1.37 goals a game. Luton have struggled defensively, conceding 77 goals and keeping two clean sheets.

          Everton sit just above Luton in 15th in the Premier League. In 35 games, The Toffees have 12 wins, eight draws and 15 losses which leaves them on 36 points, 11 points from the relegation zone and officially safe.

          The Toffees have struggled in front of goal this season, scoring 37 goals in 35 games, an average of 1.06 goals a game. Everton have been much better defensively, conceding 47 goals and keeping 12 clean sheets.

          This will be the 50th meeting between Luton and Everton, with the first meeting coming back in the 1933 FA Cup. Everton have the better record in the fixture with 23 wins in comparison to Luton’s 17 wins. The other nine games ended in a draw.

          The last five games in this fixture have seen two wins for Luton, two wins for Everton and one draw. However, before this season, the last time the two sides met was back in 2007. Since their promotion, Luton have won both meetings, though both teams were on the scoresheet.

          Recent Form

          In their last five games in all competitions, Luton have one win and four losses.

          A goal from Martin Odegaard and an own goal from Daiki Hashioka gave Arsenal the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. However, Luton could only manage one shot on target and couldn’t convert it, slumping to a 2 - 0 loss.

          The next time out for Luton saw them pick up a big win over Bournemouth. After a goalless first half, Marcus Tavernier gave Bournemouth the lead early in the second half. However, with 20 minutes to go, Jordan Clark equalised for The Hatter and in the last minute of normal time Carlton Morris popped up with a goal to give Luton the 2 - 1 win.

          The trip to the Etihad was one to forget for Luton. Ross Barkley did grab a consolation goal for Luton but another own goal from Hashioka and goals from Mateo Kovacic, Erling Haaland, Jeremy Doku and Josko Gvardiol gave Manchester City the 5 - 1 win.

          It was back to back 5 - 1 losses for Luton, this time against Brentford. A brace from Yoane Wissa and goals from Ethan Pinncok, Keane Lewis-Potter and Kevin Schade gave Brentford the win, with Luke Berry grabbing the late consolation goal this time for The Hatters.

          The last time out for Luton was against Wolves. Hwang Hee-Chan opened the scoring for Wolves just before halftime and Toti Gomes doubled the lead just five minutes into the second half. Morris did score late on for Luton but Wolves held on for the 2 - 1 win.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Everton have four wins and one loss.

          Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the only goal of the game in the first half added time in a big 1 - 0 win over ten-man Burnley, with Dara O’Shea sent off with 20 minutes to go.

          The trip to Stamford Bridge was one to forget for The Toffees. A hat-trick from Cole Palmer and a goal from Nicolas Jackson made it 4 - 0 to Chelsea at halftime. In the second half, Palmer added another and was joined on the scoresheet by Alfie Gilchrist in the 6 - 0 win for Chelsea.

          Everton bounced back in a controversial win over Nottingham Forest. Idrissa Gueye and Dwight McNeil both scored in the 2 - 0 win for The Toffees as VAR once again starred.

          The Toffees then hosted Liverpool in a massive Merseyside derby. Jarrad Branthwaite opened the scoring in the first half and Calvert-Lewin doubled the lead before the hour mark. Liverpool had 77% of the possession and 23 shots with seven on target but Everton held on for the 2 - 0 win.

          The most recent outing for Everton was against Brentford. Gueye scored the only goal of the game on the hour mark to give Everton the 1 - 0 win over Brentford.

          Footy Accumulators Prediction

          Everton have picked up some steam after their second points deduction and are likely to pick up a win. However, it is also likely to be a close affair with both teams on the scoresheet. Luton Town 1 - 2 Everton
