Luton Town vs Sheffield United Prediction and Betting Tips | February 10th 2024


Luton Town will invite last-placed Sheffield United to Kenilworth Road in the Premier League on Saturday.

The hosts are unbeaten in their last three league outings and played out an entertaining 4-4 draw against Newcastle United last week. Gabriel Osho and Ross Barkley scored in the first half while Carlton Morris and Elijah Adebayo scored in quick succession in the second half.

The visitors are winless in their last seven league games, and in their previous outing, they suffered their third 5-0 loss of the season, losing at home to Aston Villa. With just two wins from 23 games, they have just 10 points to their name. They trail the hosts, who are in 17th place in the league standings, by 10 points.

Luton Town vs Sheffield United Prediction

The Hatters have seen an upturn in form recently and have enjoyed an unbeaten start to the year. They have scored four goals apiece in their last two league games and will look to build on that form. They have suffered just one loss in their last six league outings, scoring at least twice in four games in that period, and are strong favorites.

There are no fresh absentees for the hosts in this match, and Mads Andersen faces a late fitness test as he is nursing a calf injury. Three of their five wins in the league this term have come at home, so they’ll be hopeful of a positive outcome.

The Blades went unbeaten in their first two games of the year but have suffered three consecutive losses since. They have failed to score in three of their last five away games in the league while conceding 13 goals, and they might struggle here. It should be noted that they have just one win in their last six meetings against the hosts.

Rhian Brewster is back from a suspension while Oliver McBurnie is also back in contention to start after being rested last week due to a calf injury.

Considering the current form of the two teams and the hosts’ advantage in the recent meetings in this fixture, Luton are expected to register a comfortable win.
