Premier League Specials: Luton Town 13/2 to lose next three Premier League games

Luton Town are yet to pick up their first Premier League point and we have priced them up at 13/2 to lose their next three games.

Rob Edwards' side sensationally ended their 31-year wait for top flight football last season, as they defeated Coventry City on penalties in the Championship play-off final to become a Premier League side for the first time.

The achievement completed their journey from non-league to the Premier League in just nine years, and unsurprisingly they began life in top tier as the favourites to be relegated.

It has been a difficult start for the Hatters, who are yet to get on the board for the season after four successive defeats, although they have secured a place in the third round of the EFL Cup with a 3-2 win over League Two outfit Gillingham.

Luton have had to be shrewd in the transfer market but they have added some quality in the likes of Ross Barkley, Teden Mengi and Albert Sambi Lokonga in the hope that they can start to pick up some valuable points to move away from the bottom of the table...

Latest Luton Town relegation news and odds

Tough start yields no points

Luton faced a tough trip to Brighton on the opening day, a team which has reached new heights under the management of the impressive Roberto De Zerbi.

The Hatters managed to stay in the game despite Brighton having 27 shots on goal, but the home side's extra quality was the difference as Luton succumbed to a 4-1 defeat.

Their next assignment was no easier as they travelled to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in Mauricio Pochettino's first home game in charge. Two goals from a resurgent Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Jackson's first goal for the club secured a 3-0 home win, while Luton could only muster a solitary shot on target.

West Ham were the visitors to Kenilworth Road for Luton's first home Premier League game but the Hatters were wasteful again, hitting the target just once from their 16 shots on goal. Goals from Jarrod Bowen and Kurt Zouma led the Hammers to victory, with Mads Andersen scoring a late consolation for Luton.

Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Fulham saw a slightly different approach from Edwards, as they were content in letting Fulham having the majority of the ball with the aim of hitting Marco Silva's side on the counter attack. 

Luton only saw 22% of the ball during the game as they completed just 222 passes compared to the home side's 809, but they had their chances in front of goal. Unfortunately they couldn't take them and four defeats with two just goals scored represents a worrying return.

Big fixtures to come

Even at this stage of the season, Luton's next three Premier League games carry extra significance as they face teams who are also likely to become embroiled in a relegation battle.

They face Wolves at home this weekend, a side who have lost four of their five league games so far, before heading to Goodison Park to face goal-shy Everton.

Fellow promoted outfit Burnley then visit Kenilworth Road in October, as Luton look for some valuable points ahead of some tough fixtures.

With games against the likes of Tottenham, Aston Villa, Liverpool and Man Utd coming up afterwards, Luton will need a good return from games against teams likely to be rivals come the end of the season.

bet365's Steve Freeth said: “The pre-season chat about Luton doing a ‘Derby’ is still swirling about with the Hatters having nothing to show from their first four games in the Premier League, but we’re not totally writing them off despite the pointless start. 

“Rob Edwards will undoubtedly take some positives from their latest defeat at Fulham in a game where they were unfortunate to leave empty-handed and these three key games may give them the perfect opportunity to kick-start their season.”
