Luton Town v Manchester United - Preview

Luton likely to rotate for Manchester United clash

Luton boss Nathan Jones is likely to rotate his side as they welcome Manchester United to Kenilworth Road for their Carabao Cup third-round clash.

The Hatters have won all four of their fixtures so far this season, with Jones making plenty of changes for the cup victories against Norwich and Reading.

Midfielder Glen Rea is in contention to feature despite coming off at half-time in Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship win over Derby after complaining of light-headedness.

Former United midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe could also return to the side having not made the bench at the weekend.

Dean Henderson could make his United debut with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer vowing to make changes on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old academy product signed a new and improved deal until 2025 after returning from two highly-successful loan stints at Sheffield United.

Solskjaer will rotate and is looking to build sharpness after a poor 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace in Saturday’s Premier League opener.

Fred, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly and Henderson were unused substitutes against the Eagles, with Donny van de Beek, Odion Ighalo and Mason Greenwood coming off the bench. Jesse Lingard was conspicuous by his absence from the squad, while Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe remain sidelined.

League Cup Betting Tips: Luton v Manchester United

Manchester United look to bounce back from their disappointing start to the 2020/21 season on Saturday with a trip to face in-form Championship side Luton Town in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer led the Red Devils of the semi-finals of this competition last term, and they nearly made it to Wembley after a spirited second-leg comeback against eventual champions Man City in the semi, and the Norwegian may take this competition seriously as he spies a route to silverware - after three trophyless years (the longest run since the late 1980s), adding a cup this season will be high on the priority list. 

 

Manchester United looked to have been in stellar form in the latter half of last season, picking up more points in the Premier League than any other side after the signing of Bruno Fernandes in January, but their momentum appears to have been stunted over the summer, losing both the FA Cup and Europa League semi-finals and returning after a shortened break with a 3-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday, a scoreline that was representative of the balance of play.

 

Luton, meanwhile, were one of the Championship’s most in-form sides after the coronavirus hiatus, losing just twice from nine post-lockdown outings in the summer as returning coach Nathan Jones steered them clear of relegation. 

 

They’ve also returned in fine fettle, knocking fellow Championship sides Norwich (3-1) and Reading (0-1) in the first two rounds of this competition, while taking six points from six available in their league campaign, beating Barnsley and Derby, 2-1 at the weekend following Jordan Clarke’s 87th-minute winner. 

 

In spite that discrepancy in form, the superior resources and pedigree of Manchester United see them as strong favourites here at Kenilworth Road, priced with Paddy Power at just 1/4 for the victory in 90 minutes, 9/2 for the draw and a massive 9/1 for the hosts to make it five wins from five competitive outings so far this season. 

 

We recommend backing Mason Greenwood to score first here, which has boosted odds of 5/1 as part of Paddy Power’s Power Price promotion. The young England international is expected to come in here, having only featured off the bench at the weekend, and was in prolific form last term with 17 goals in all competitions.

    Luton Town 0 - 3 Manchester United - Match Report

    Date published: 9/23/2020 12:05:03 PM

    Manchester United labour to unspectacular victory over Luton

    ate goals from Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood helped seal a 3-0 win.

    Manchester United did enough to see off Luton in their Carabao Cup third-round clash at Kenilworth Road but it was another laborious display from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

    A Juan Mata penalty on the stroke of half-time and neat finishes from substitutes Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood secured a largely unspectacular 3-0 win.

    Match Highlights

    After slipping to a home defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday, Solskjaer made 10 changes in Bedfordshire, although his starting line-up still boasted eight senior internationals.

    Donny Van De Beek made his full debut in midfield, while goalkeeper Dean Henderson finally made his Manchester United bow, with Rashford required off the bench to sew up the victory.

    A trip to Preston or Brighton awaits in round four, but Solskjaer knows his team need to find the form from the back end of last season if they are to remain in the hunt for the long haul this time around.

    James Shea was unsurprisingly the busier of the goalkeepers in the opening exchanges and did well to keep out a Mata strike as the visitors saw plenty of the ball.

    Luton enjoyed a couple of forays forward and Danny Hylton should have done better when picked out in the box by former United youngster Ryan Tunnicliffe.

    The lack of incisiveness from his side would have been a worry to Solskjaer, who had highlighted a late start to pre-season training as a key reason in their weekend loss to Palace.

    But, just as Luton appeared set to have seen out the first half without incident, they conceded a penalty less than two minutes before the break.

    A United attack broke down and Brandon Williams collected the ball, bursting into the box where he was tripped by George Moncur.

    Mata stepped up to send Shea the wrong way and give the visitors a half-time lead.

    The visitors started to exert a period of pressure as Jesse Lingard saw a shot cleared off the line before Shea once again did well to push clear a Nemanja Matic drive and then keep out Van De Beek with his legs.

    Solskjaer clearly felt he needed more to put a spirited Luton to bed and introduced Bruno Fernandes, Greenwood and Rashford from the bench with 12 minutes to go.

    Instead, it was Luton who would threaten next, Henderson making his first save of the night to deny Tom Lockyer, who then saw his follow-up effort cleared off the line.

    But then the resources available to Solskjaer would prove the difference as Rashford and Greenwood both opened their accounts for the season in the dying stages to seal a result which certainly flattered the visitors.
