- Both teams scored in 28 of Luton’s 46 league assignments last season
- Manchester United’s league matches featured an average of 2.68 goals per game last season
- Luton Town have won all four of their competitive matches in 2020-21
Free-scoring Hatters can get on scoresheet
Even with the controversial penalty aside, Manchester United deserved to lose their opening Premier League contest against Crystal Palace on Saturday and will have to recover quickly for their EFL Cup contest at Luton Town.
The Hatters are in top form, having won all four of their matches across all competitions this season and will surely sniff blood in the United camp, with the Red Devils still looking short of match fitness.
It is for that reason that punters should perhaps swerve the results market and instead anticipate a high-scoring encounter.
Luton have found the net in their last nine competitive matches and, even with rotation, United have a front line to be feared so we predict both teams to score and over 2.5 goals.
If punters are looking for a correct score bet, favouring United is probably wise and 2-1 could be the way to go – Luton lost by that scoreline on seven occasions in the league last season.
