Luton News and Form – Can Luton beat Premier League side Leicester?

It has been five defeats in eight Championship games for Luton this season. That means they are hovering just above the relegation zone. They are a newly promoted side to the division though, to be fair. Their two league successes this season have been against sides who are beneath them. They did get a very good 3-1 home win over League One side Ipswich in the first round of this season’s EFL Cup.

Then they did even better to beat fellow Championship side Cardiff 3-0 away from home in the following round. Before this season’s campaign, the Hatters had taken two wins in seven EFL Cup fixtures. So this has been a big shift of form for them. They need a special night at Kenilworth Road now to try and keep this campaign going. They last hosted a Premier League side in 2007 when Everton visits. The Hatters lost 1-0 after extra time.

Leicester News and Form – Will Leicester strike a win at Luton?

Leicester fought back from a goal down against Tottenham on the weekend to claim a Premier League victory which left them in the top four. So they have put together a very solid season. They have suffered just one defeat across all competitions (a league defeat against Manchester United). Their League Cup campaign started with a penalty shootout success up in the northeast against Newcastle.

The Foxes have won seven of their last eight away games in the competition now (including penalty shoot outs). Their last two away wins from the King Power in the League Cup have both come through a penalty shootout. Those were both against Premier League opposition though. Three of their last four away games in the EFL Cup have gone all the way to a shootout. Can they get the job done in 90 minutes at Kenilworth Road?

Luton v Leicester Predictions

Leicester to win: Leicester should have enough about them to handle themselves on the road in this tie. The defence of Luton has looked pretty suspect this season and even though Leicester aren’t a major attacking threat, they can carve out enough chances to win.
