Luton Town v Burnley: Odds, predictions, team news and stats

Newly-promoted duo Luton and Burnley meet at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday, with the Hatters in buoyant mood after picking up their first-ever Premier League win.

Rob Edwards' side were arguably second best on Saturday at Everton but came out with the result, triumphing 2-1 at Goodison Park.

The Toffees had 23 shots but could not add to Dominic Calvert-Lewin's strike after the England man half the deficit following efforts from Tom Lockyer and Carlton Morris. That moved them onto four points for the season after the previous weekend's 1-1 home draw against Wolves.

Burnley remain marooned on one point courtesy of September's 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest and were again second-best in Saturday's 2-0 loss at Newcastle.

They won at Kenilworth Road in the Championship but are still to show their best in the Premier League - can they finally get a result on Tuesday?

Luton v Burnley Predictions

Draw @ 21/10

This game was delayed from August due to the renovations being made to Kenilworth Road to meet the standard required for the Premier League, arguably an apt metaphor for where these sides sit.

With Luton 17th and Burnley 19th, both will have been targeting this clash to pick up vital points.

This is a game in hand for both on their relegation rivals and a victory for the Hatters could take them into mid-table. The Clarets could move out of the bottom three, albeit they would need a significant swing in the goal difference column.

Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Newcastle left Burnley stranded on just four goals for the season, the worst in the league, while Luton's two strikes in their historic 2-1 win at Everton took them onto five for the campaign.

Edwards and Vincent Kompany will know how winnable this match is for their teams and that could lead to them cancelling each other out.

A draw could be the outcome, with 1-1 at 11/2 a realistic option in the Correct Score market.

Carlton Morris anytime goalscorer @ 2/1

Morris is Luton's top scorer with three Premier League goals and is leading the Hatters' push for points this season.

The 27-year-old has had to bide his time before making it to the top and is doing his best to ensure he and his side take their opportunity on the big stage.

With 15 conceded, Burnley have the joint-second worst defensive record in the Premier League and Morris could punish them on Tuesday.  

Luton Team News

Dan Potts and Jordan Clark are both out with ankle and foot injuries and are expected back after the international break.

However, Gabriel Osho could return from a knee problem, while Ross Barkley is also being assessed as he recovers from a thigh issue.

There are also doubts over Reece Burke and Lockyer, who were both withdrawn at Everton, while Albert Sambi Lokonga will miss the next couple of months due to a thigh injury. 

Burnley Team News

Lyle Foster returns from suspension but the game comes too soon for Johann Berg Gudmundsson (calf) and Hjalmar Ekdal (knee), although both could be back in contention to face Chelsea on Saturday.

Both Michael Obafemi (hamstring) and Darko Churlinov (illness) are long-term absentees.

Luton v Burnley Stats

Luton's win over Everton marked their first top-flight victory since beating Aston Villa 2-0 on 25th April 1992.

Burnley lost just three of their 46 games in the Championship last season but have failed to bring that form to the Premier League, taking just one point from their six games.

However, the Clarets won 1-0 at Kenilworth Road in February, after the pair drew 1-1 at Turf Moor in August 2022.
