Manchester United host Luton in a huge Premier League game at Old Trafford today. While conventional thinking would suggest United are set for what would be a routine win, little about their form this season has proven convincing. Such has been their form of late, fans will surely not be taken this for granted even despite the vast gulf in financial resource between the clubs.
While Erik ten Hag fumed at the refereeing decisions that played a huge part in Wednesday’s loss to FC Copenhagen in the Champions League, the fact remains his team have endured a miserable start to the campaign across all competitions. Lose to the Hatters at the Threatre of Dreams and the pressure on the Dutchman’s job will only grow.
Indeed, Luton looked impressive during their draw with Liverpool and can approach this as something of a free-hit. Follow all the action LIVE with Standard Sport’s dedicated match blog!
