Luton Town welcome Wolves to Kenilworth Road this Saturday for match week six of the Premier League. Both sides sit much further down the Premier League then either team would’ve wanted, making a win this weekend a six point match.
The Hatters currently sit rock bottom of the Premier League after four games. Luton have four losses so far, leaving them on zero points, the only team in the league without a point this season.
Luton started their first Premier League campaign away to Brighton. Solly March, Joao Pedro, Simon Adringa and Evan Ferguson all scored in the 4 - 1 win for Brighton with Luton’s first goal in the Premier League coming as a consolation as Carlton Morris converted his penalty late on. The first home game for Luton against Burnley was postponed which meant they would have to wait to see Premier League action at Kenilworth Road.
Next was a trip to Stamford Bridge. Raheem Sterling bagged a brace and Nicolas Jackson also joined him on the scoresheet as Chelsea won 3 - 0 with Luton only managing one shot on target. In the first home game of the season, The Hatters were back among the goals with Mads Juel Andersen scoring in the 92nd minute but due to earlier goals from Jarrod Bowen and Kurt Zouma, West Ham still won 2 - 1.
The Hatters’ most recent outing came at Fulham. Carlos Vinicius scored the only goal in the 1 - 0 win for Fulham.
Wolves, on the other hand, sit 16th in the Premier League, having played five games. With one win and four losses, Wolves have just three points to their name.
The opening game of the season for Wolves was a trip to Old Trafford. After dominating the game with six shots on target, Raphael Varane scored for Manchester United in the 76th minute to give United the 1 - 0 win. In the first home game of the season, Wolves hosted Brighton. Karou Mitoma, Pervis Estupinan and Solly March (who bagged two) all scored for The Seagulls. Hwang Hee-chan did score for Wolves but it wasn’t enough as they lost 4 - 1 with Matheus Nunes sent off in extra time.
Wolves’ one win this season came against Everton. Sasa Kalajdzic scored the only goal of the game late in the 87th minute to give Wolves the 1 - 0 win. Hee-chan and Matheus Cunha scored in the second half, but a brace from Odsonne Edouard and a goal from Eberchi Eze gave Crystal Palace the 3 - 2 win.
The last time out for Wolves was against Liverpool. Hee-chan opened the scoring in the seventh minute, but goals from Cody Gakpo and Andrew Robertson and an own goal from Hugo Bueno gave Liverpool the 3 - 1 win.
Luton and Wolves have only met 32 times in their histories with the first meeting coming back in 1932. The two sides aren’t separated by much with Wolves having 14 wins in the fixture and Luton having 13 wins, the other five meetings ending in a draw. This will be the first meeting between the two since 2013 and the first in the top flight.
