Burnley vs Luton Predictions

  • Burnley failed to win ten of their last 14 home games last season (Premier League).
  • Luton avoided defeat in nine of their last 15 Championship away games (7 wins, 2 draws).
  • Elijah Adebayo scored 16 Championship goals in 40 appearances last season.

Luton have weapons to hurt Clarets’ backline

Overreactions come thick and fast at the start of a new season and it’s easy to get carried away by what Burnley achieved in dominating Huddersfield at John Smith’s Stadium last weekend. Vincent Kompany’s men completed 506 passes in their 1-0 win, the most on record for the club in a league match while the Terriers’ two shots were the fewest Burnley have faced in a league match in over a decade.

Those Burnley fans there certainly enjoyed it, but they might be brought back down to earth with a bump when a Luton team with the right weapons to hurt them turn up at Turf Moor. Kompany cannot expect to get away without playing to ‘proper’ centre-backs for anything more than the odd game here and there and Charlie Taylor just about held firm against a woeful Town attack comprised of one centre forward.

Nathan Jones will deploy two strikers with pace and aerial ability while Luton’s 3-5-2 formation offers plenty of scope for the wing-backs to deliver crosses – something that Huddersfield’s couldn’t against Burnley.

Adebayo has the answer for Hatters

Elijah Adebayo’s record of 16 league goals in 40 appearances last term make his quote of 3/1 anytime look generous and, after dealing with fitness issues in pre-season, he should be sharper after 84 minutes of action last weekend.

The Hatters were held at bay by Birmingham last weekend, which would have been a lesson to them to brush up on their finishing. They had the chances to take all three points and would have carved out one or two more had it not been for the Blues’ time-wasting tactics.

Luton can avoid defeat in this one and should be backed to do so with a double chance play. The Hatters won seven of their last 15 road games last term and drew another couple, which stacks up well against Burnley’s record of just four wins in their final 14. A 2-1 away win could be within reach of the visitors if Burnley’s central defence comes under a bombardment.
