Manchester United vs Luton Town Preview

Manchester United vs Luton Town

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium: Old Trafford

Date: 11th November 2023

Kick-off time –  15:00 GMT

Manchester United will return to Premier League action this Saturday when they welcome Luton Town to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have not had the best of starts to the 2023/24 season, with another loss in the Champions League coming in midweek. Erik ten Hag’s side travelled to Denmark in their most recent outing hoping to get a win that would give them a chance to qualify for the next round of the Champions League.

But after a bright start that saw them score two goals inside the opening half-hour through Rasmus Hojlund, they lost the plot when Marcus Rashford got a first-half red card, eventually losing the game 4-3.

That loss was their ninth in their opening 17 games of the season, leaving them sitting rock bottom in their UCL group. Although they are in the top half of the league, they haven’t had great performances and were only able to get maximum points from Fulham in the closing minutes in their last game.

They will aim to take maximum points here at Old Trafford where they have lost back-to-back league games by a 3-0 margin.

Luton Town may be the perfect opponent to put that right against, as United are unbeaten in 13 meetings with newly-promoted Premier League (PL) opposition (W12, D1) – winning each of the last ten – two of which came earlier in 2023/24.

But the visitors will come into this tie confident of getting a result after their performance against Liverpool that saw them nearly snatch three points but not for a late Luis Diaz goal. Boss Rob Edwards was filled with “pride” at his side’s display that lifted them out of the relegation zone as the Hatters avoided defeat for the second time in three outings.

A first trip to Old Trafford since September 1991 beckons, and the visitors will be hoping for a better outing as their side have lost 18 consecutive away H2Hs, with their only such victory coming way back in September 1897 when United were called Newton Heath.
