Liverpool to score more than 2.5 goals
It is after 15 years, the Hatters will be meeting Liverpool, and after 31 years in the Premier League competition. Facing the football giants at their home ground is an opportunity for the hosts to make headlines and get out of the relegation zone.
However, the hosts have shown major problems with their defence and have completely failed to score a clean sheet in 10 games. They have conceded an average of 1.8 goals this season and their only victory came against Everton by 1-2.
When it comes to keeping the ball and attacking, the Hatters have shown an average possession of 41.7% with 2.7 shots on target and in 60% of the matches they have scored goals.
Carlton Morris has 3 goals and 1 assist on his name and his partner E. Adebayo has 2 goals on his name. Morris will be the key player as he has 24% shots on target this season and will be eyeing to score against the Reds.
Osho is still in the injury room and won’t be part of the team against Liverpool.
Predicted Lineup: Kaminski; Burke, Lockyer, Mengi, Doughty; Barkley, Ruddock, Nakamba, Ogbene; Morris, Adebayo.
Liverpool has been on a path of revival this season with Klopp working hard to put his team at the top of the charts on the point table. A loss against Tottenham was a shipwreck but the good news is that their attack is at the top of their game.
With an average possession of 56.09% and 5.91 shots on target, the Reds have shown their dominance against every club. In every game of the league, Liverpool carries a 100% goal-scoring record. Mohamad Salah has 10 goals and 4 assists on his name and Darwin Nunez has 6 goals and 4 assists on his name. Both players also have 28% and 20% shots on target this season respectively.
The Reds’ major struggle is their defence. They only have 1 clean sheet this season and 18.18% fixtures without conceding a goal.
Alisson has 32 saves but he has failed to stop the goal 9 times with 3.6 saves/goals. As the team travels to Luton Town, the Reds will be eying to gain some away points and improve their situation in the point table.
Diogo Jota might preferred to start the game over Darwin Nunez against Luton Town.
Predicted Lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konaté, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Szoboszlai, Endo, Gravenberch; Salah, Jota, Diaz
The Hatters have shown their struggles with their attack and defence. They won’t be able to stop the ferocious charge which will be done by the visitors.
Liverpool has just 73% shots on target but they are still struggling with the defence. However, we predict a comfortable win for Liverpool on Sunday against Luton Town.
