Fulham vs Luton Town match preview
Can Luton Town claim their first points in the Premier League?
So far, it’s played three and lost three for Rob Edwards’ side, most-recently defeated 2-1 in their long-awaited home-opener against West Ham a fortnight ago.
Mads Juel Andersen’s goal deep into stoppage time coming too late to set up any sort of grand-stand finish at Kenilworth Road.
The Hatters remain widely expected to be going straight back down to the Championship but, with their next three fixtures against Wolves, Everton and Burnley, now would be a good time to kick-start their campaign.
Fulham meantime are winless since the opening day, albeit they have enjoyed a hard-fought 2-2 draw with Arsenal during this period.
Last time out however, the Cottagers suffered a controversial defeat at Manchester City, with the host’s second goal inexplicable not disallowed for offside, before the Citizens ultimately ran out 5-1 winners.
In their only home league match of the season so far, Marco Silva’s side were demolished 3-0 by West London rivals Brentford, so will be desperate to put that right in this one.
Luton are winless in seven meetings with the Whites, dating back 25 years, while the Hatters’ most-recent visit to Craven Cottage resulted in a 7-0 battering, as Fulham were crowned Championship champions in 2022.
Will this one produce an equally emphatic scoreline?
Fulham team news
Key midfielders Harrison Reed and João Palhinha both signed new, long-term contracts on Thursday, the latter doing so after his deadline day move to Bayern Munich collapsed.
So, Palhinha will return to the XI here, replacing Tom Cairney who picked up an injury at the Etihad.
Predicted XI (4-5-1): Leno; Tete, Diop, Ream, Robinson; Reed, Palhinha, Decordova-Reid, Pereira, Wilson; Jiménez.
Luton Town team news
Albert Sambi Lokonga is likely to make his debut in midfield, having arrived on loan from Arsenal on deadline day.
Elsewhere, Chiedozie Ogbene impressed for the Republic of Ireland against France and Netherlands last week, so could that earn him a first club start of the season here?
With club captain Tom Lockyer still sidelined, Reece Burke will deputise at the heart of defence.
Predicted XI (3-5-2): Kaminski; Andersen, Burke, Bell; Doughty, Nakamba, Barkley, Lokonga, Giles; Adebayo, Morris.
