Liverpool v Luton: Tips, Predictions and Odds

With Liverpool busy in the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea on Sunday, they host Luton Town in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

And, with this clash moved forward a few days thanks to the Reds’ cup commitments, they have a chance to extend their lead at the top of the table.

However, Jurgen Klopp's side are facing mounting injury problems with a high priority game to come at the weekend.

Couple that with Luton being on a five-game unbeaten run on the road - a stretch which includes a win on Merseyside - and this begins to look like a potential banana skin for the league leaders.

Liverpool v Luton betting tips and predictions

Both teams to score - 3/4

Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Brentford at the weekend kept them clear at the top of the Premier League table, but it brought with it more injury issues for the Reds. Goalkeeper Alisson was a late scratch from the teamsheet, which was another blow to the Reds at the back.

With a cup final ahead, Alisson is likely to join Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joel Matip on the sidelines among as many as nine potential absentees. The Reds have the strength in depth up front to move on from some injuries, but they’re already struggling defensively.

Both teams have scored in each of Liverpool’s last six matches, while they’ve gone seven games without a clean sheet at Anfield. Klopp's side have kept winning in spite of their defensive issues, but it means they can’t be relied on at the back.

Luton’s arrival will likely cause some problems, as the visitors have seen some really high-scoring matches of late. Both teams have scored in six of the Hatters' last seven, while nine of their last 10 away trips have seen both sides find the net.

Luton drew 4-4 at Newcastle in their last away game, continuing a five-game unbeaten run on the road which included a 2-1 win at Everton. Each of those five games saw both teams score, so they should be confident for this trip.

Liverpool are likely to prove too strong, but it’s tough to back the Reds for a clean sheet at the minute. Both teams to score looks well priced at 3/4, especially as the hosts will have an eye on Sunday’s huge clash.

Carlton Morris to score anytime - 11/4

Luton forward Carlton Morris is someone who could capitalise on Liverpool’s issues this midweek. The forward has made a real impact in the Premier League this season, scoring seven times for a Luton side who were expected to really struggle.

Morris has been in fine form of late, as he’s now scored in three straight games after netting against Manchester United on Sunday. He’s scored in four of his last five in the league, while four of his league goals this season have come away from home.

Morris struck in Luton’s 2-1 win at Everton in the Premier League earlier this term and the forward can add a goal at Anfield to an impressive season for the Hatters.

At 11/4, he’s good value to trouble a home defence who are struggling to keep clean sheets right now. 

Liverpool to win 3-1 - 10/1

While Luton have put together a good run of form on their travels, they head to Anfield having lost their last two matches. The visitors have also now lost six of their seven meetings with the top six following their weekend defeat.

The Hatters have claimed seven of their nine away points this season at the bottom three, losing six of eight visits to teams above them.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have won 17 of 19 home games in all competitions this season, including six wins from six against the Premier League’s bottom 10.

The hosts are likely to concede but they’ve won while conceding a single goal in three of their last four matches.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have plenty of options going forward and with 33 league goals scored at home this term, they can trouble Luton’s backline.

The Reds have scored exactly three goals in six of their 10 home league wins this season, so a 3-1 win for the hosts appeals at 10/1.
