The Luton vs. Wolves match (at 21:00 on September 23) is considered tense to the end.
Luton vs. Wolves: Reverse Final
The tense reverse final between Luton and Wolves took place. This season, Luton have gone through a total of five matches. Luton only managed one win during coach Rob Edwards’ time as manager; that victory came against Gillingham 3-2 at home in Round 2 of League Cup competition. Luton suffered consecutive Premier League losses before their only point came against Chelsea (1-3) and West Ham (1-2). Luton suffered another 4-1 setback at Brighton during Season One before two further consecutive setbacks against Chelsea (0-3) and West Ham (1-2) followed.
Luton were defeated 0-1, despite their best efforts, by Fulham on the field last time out, Carlos Vinicius’ goal in the 65th minute being what ultimately cost them their fourth straight Premier League loss. They only scored two goals and conceded 10 goals.
So far, only Luton are the team without a point in the top flight of English football this season, after Burnley picked up one point after a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest in the latest match of round 5. Luton is also the team that scored the fewest goals, only twice, causing the opponent’s net to shake.
Predicted to be the king of the relegation battle in the Premier League this season, Luton are proving this through their current results. Kenilworth Road, their home ground, is seen as the top target for relegation, and what has happened has only confirmed that.
In their next Premier League match, Luton will return home to face Wolves. Overall, the prediction for Luton vs. Wolves is somewhat biased towards the visitors; however, to have any chance of surviving the relegation battle, Luton must try to pick up points in this crucial encounter.
On the other hand, the Wolves haven’t had a successful season so far. In the last match, Wolves surprised by taking the lead over Liverpool at home after Hwang Hee-chan’s goal. However, this was all Molineux could accomplish during this match; ultimately they couldn’t withstand pressure from Liverpool as Cody Gakpo and Andrew Robertson scored to give Liverpool a 2-1 advantage before Harvey Elliott sealed their triumph 3-1 for Port City side. Manager Gary O’Neil expressed disappointment over their defeat; noting how Wolves missed several good opportunities to double the score but couldn’t capitalize. Furthermore, former Bournemouth boss claimed things would have gone differently had things been tied at two all along.
Wolves lost to Liverpool for only the fourth time ever before losing against United 0-1; Brighton 4-5, and Crystal Palace 2-3. Their only win so far this season came against Everton at Goodison Park when they beat them 1-0; currently sitting 16th out of 16 teams but only 2 points away from Everton’s relegation spot
Analysis of the scoring record of the last two teams
This season has seen Wolves significantly diminished following key player departures; one such loss was Coach Lopetegui himself who left just before starting this new campaign. Now Gary O’Neil must help protect Wolves while trying to help survive but this task won’t come easily: their defense has been their Achilles Heel; only Burnley (12 goals conceded this season compared to Wolves 11). Wolves’ form away from home has also been terrible.
Wolves has only won once out of its last 11 Premier League matches; that victory came against Everton at Goodison Park last month with a narrow 1-0 scoreline. They will face Luton in this year’s FA Cup third-round encounter; Luton and Wolves last met six times prior, when Wolves held an advantage — winning three matches, drawing two, and losing only once! In total. Luton have met Wolves six times (head-to-head record slightly tilts in favor of Wolves with three wins; three draws two draws two and losses only once since 2012-13 when Luton faced each other 6 times; head-to-head record tilts slightly in favor of Wolves who has taken three wins, drawn two, while only losing once!). Luton have previously faced Wolves before; Luton are set for their seventh meeting this time since 2012. In total they have met six times already this season – they last met once during 2012-13, when Luton won 3 matches while Lutted won 2 matches while Wolves has won 3, drawn 2 matches while Lutted has only lost 1.
In terms of force, Luton will be without Dan Potts (ankle injury), Jordan Clark (ankle injury), and Gabriel Osho (knee injury). Ross Barkley was missing against Fulham due to a groin muscle injury; however, he has retrained and is available to play against Wolves. Albert Sambi Lokonga has performed very well since joining Luton on loan; he will join Marvelous Nakamba in the midfield.
This season, both teams showed a bad performance. Luton have failed in all four matches played in the Premier League, while Wolves have lost four out of five. Despite playing at home, Luton are still slightly inferior to Wolves in terms of squad strength. The Wolves have better players who are better able to transform. In a competition like this, the flash of a star can decide the entire course of the match. Therefore, customers are seen as gaining a higher advantage from this aspect.
