          Luton vs Sheffield United: Betting Tips, Match Prediction & Preview

          Kenilworth Road is the host stadium as Luton welcome Sheffield United in what will be a crucial game at the bottom of the Premier League table. Both sides are in desperate need of three points in the fight for survival.

          • Date: 10/02/24
          • Kick-off time: 15:00
          • Venue: Kenilworth Road

          This weekend’s Premier League fixture is huge in the race to beat the drop. Sheffield United and Luton were both promoted to the top flight last season, and will be hoping to remain in the division. However, after a similarly torrid start to the campaign for each team, one is on the up and slowly climbing, whilst the other seems resigned to their fate.

          Luton currently sit in 16th, having picked up five points from the last nine available, including a thumping 4-0 win over Brighton and a thrilling 4-4 draw at Newcastle. They are one point above the bottom three, but this game presents an excellent opportunity to create some breathing space between themselves and 18th-place Everton. The Blades, in contrast, must win this game to keep their very slim hopes of survival alive. Rooted to the bottom of the table, they are 10 points from safety, with some teams having a game in hand.

          Rob Edwards’ side have scored 32 goals this season, with eight coming in the last two games. They have seen an increased output from Elijah Adebayo, including a hat-trick against Brighton which took his tally to nine for the season. The summer addition of Ross Barkley has also been massive, with the midfielder showing his quality throughout the campaign. They will fancy their chances of finding the net against a United side who have conceded a league-worst 59 goals.

          In the last five meetings between these two sides, there have been two draws, two Luton wins and one Sheffield United win. All but one of these matches were played in the Championship, with the reverse fixture earlier this season ending in favour of Luton at Bramall Lane. The Boxing Day game saw Alfie Doughty open the scoring for the visitors, before Oli McBurnie and Anel Ahmedhodzic scored in eight second-half minutes to turn it around. However, Luton made a comeback of their own, with two own goals in the last 15 minutes securing a precious three points.

          Form Guide (Last Five Games)

          Luton Form Guide:

          In their last five games, Luton have won three, drawn one and lost one. After a really tough start to life in the Premier League, Luton have finally found some good form as they fight for survival.

          A 1-1 draw at Burnley began this stretch of games, with a late Carlton Morris equaliser securing a massive point for his team.

          The last two games have been absolute thrillers for Hatters fans, with the latest being a 4-4 draw at St James’ Park against Newcastle. The hosts had taken an early lead through Sean Longstaff, but Gabriel Osho levelled the score just after 20 minutes. It wasn’t tied for long, however, as Longstaff restored the Magpies’ lead with his second of the afternoon. The visitors refused to back down, with Ross Barkley getting his side back on level terms once again. They then took their first lead of the day through a Morris penalty, before Elijah Adebayo extended their advantage three minutes later. Newcastle, always dangerous at home, began their comeback with a Kieran Tripper goal shortly afterwards, and with momentum on their side they bagged the leveller thanks to substitute Harvey Barnes.

          This followed a stunning 4-0 victory over Brighton in the midweek fixtures. They made an incredible start, scoring two goals in the first three minutes to blow their opponents away. Adebayo scored his second and Luton’s third to make it game over by the break. He then bagged another to complete the rout and his hat-trick.

          Edwards’ side have also enjoyed success in the FA Cup, as they have progressed to the fifth round after a 2-1 win at Everton. Their trip to Everton came as a result of their third-round replay win away at Bolton as Chiedozie Ogbene scored the winner after they conceded an early opener.

          Sheffield United Form Guide:

          In their last five games, Sheffield United have won one, drawn one and lost three. Despite sacking Paul Heckingbottom and replacing him with Chris Wilder, the Blades are still struggling to turn their season around. Rooted to the bottom of the table, United have lost two of their Premier League games with their sole victory coming in the FA Cup.

          It was that FA Cup tie that began this stretch of games, as they thrashed lower league Gillingham 4-0. They were rewarded with a home tie against fellow Premier League side Brighton, but saw their cup journey cut short with a 5-2 defeat. Between these two ties was a dramatic league meeting with West Ham, in which they salvaged a point in the 13th minute of stoppage time from the spot.

          Their poor defence was on show against a low-scoring Crystal Palace side, who put three past Ivo Grbic in goal. United took a first-minute lead through Ben Brereton Diaz, and then another through

          James McAtee, but were pegged back both times by Eberechi Eze. Michael Olise then scored the winner with just over 20 minutes to go.

          However, it was their most recent game which was the worst of them all, as they were thrashed 5-0 at home to Aston Villa. It’s not quite the 8-0 hammering they received from Newcastle, but after going 4-0 down 30 minutes in, many wondered if they were going to see a repeat. Villa only managed to add one more, but it was another on a long list of miserable afternoons for Blades fans, as they booed their team off the pitch.

          Footy Accumulators Prediction

          Sitting at the bottom of the table, Sheffield United look destined for an immediate return to the Championship. Luton, however, have enjoyed an upturn in fortunes and are giving themselves a great chance of staying up. They are in good form and we expect that to continue. We Predict: Luton 3-0 Sheffield United
