It’s a battle at the bottom of the table when Burnley host Luton Town as the Premier League returns on Friday night.
This game was initially scheduled to take place on Monday but has been brought forward due to Luton having to face Bolton in a replay of their FA Cup third-round tie. Burnley are four points behind Luton in 19th, seriously struggling to find their place in the Premier League. Vincent Kompany’s side have won just three times this season, including against Luton in their previous meeting, but they haven’t been able to build on that.
The Hatters are just one point from safety at the halfway stage of their season, with a game in hand over Everton directly above them. Luton recently had a two-game winning streak either side of Christmas, beating Newcastle and Sheffield United, half of their total victories this season. However, they followed that up with a defeat to end 2023 against Chelsea.
H2H / Stats
Burnley are unbeaten in their past seven games against Luton, since a 2-0 defeat in March 2000. Four of those games have been victories, including each of the past two and the one Premier League meeting this season.
3 October 2023 – Luton 1-2 Burnley – Premier League
18 February 2023 – Luton 0-1 Burnley – Championship
6 August 2022 – Burnley 1-1 Luton – Championship
31 March 2007 – Burnley 0-0 Luton – Championship
31 October 2006 – Luton 0-2 Burnley – Championship
Vincent Kompany was hoping that Jordan Beyer would be available for this game against Luton, but it remains to be seen whether the earlier date will affect his availability. Luca Koleosho, Charlie Taylor and Lyle Foster will all miss out.
For Luton, Issa Kabore is on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations, while Tom Lockyer, Dan Potts, Reece Burke and Marvelous Nakamba are all out injured.
Probable Line Up
Burnley XI: Trafford (GK), Vitinho, O’Shea, Beyer, Taylor, Odobert, Ramsey, Brownhill, Gudmundsson, Foster, Amdouni
Luton Town: Kaminski (GK), Mengi, Osho, Bell, Doughty, Lokonga, Barkley, Giles, Townsend, Brown, Woodrow
Burnley are unbeaten in their past seven games against Luton but the last three games between these two sides at Turf More have finished level. With both teams doing all they can to get to safety as early as possible we expect a draw.
