Liverpool aims for their fifth consecutive win as they head to Kenilworth Road to face Luton Town in the Premier League.
The Reds recently defeated Bournemouth 2-1 in the EFL Cup, while Luton Town suffered a 3-1 defeat against Aston Villa.
Aston Villa’s superiority prevailed over Luton Town in their last match, extending Villa’s remarkable home winning streak to 12 matches in the Premier League.
Luton conceded goals to John McGinn, Moussa Diaby, and an own goal by Tom Lockyer.
Luton Town’s form has been less than ideal, with October proving to be a challenging month for the newly-promoted side.
Despite starting the month with a win against Everton, they only managed to secure one point in their subsequent four fixtures, including a 2-2 draw against Nottingham Forest.
Luton Town is currently in 18th place and faces the risk of dropping further down the table if they don’t perform well.
Unless they can prevent Liverpool’s attackers from scoring in their upcoming match, they will become the first Premier League team to concede in each of their first 11 games in the competition since 1994.
Liverpool is in good form, coming off an emotional 3-0 win against Nottingham Forest.
The Reds have won their last four matches and are just three points behind the Premier League leaders, Tottenham Hotspur.
They have been consistent in scoring, with at least two goals in each of their last six matches.
Despite their good form, Liverpool has faced challenges against newly-promoted Premier League teams on the road recently, losing in their last two encounters.
Their last competitive match against Luton Town was in January 2008, where they won 5-0 in an FA Cup game with Steven Gerrard scoring a hat-trick.

Luton Town did not suffer any fresh injury or suspension concerns in their last match against Aston Villa.
However, several players, including Mads Andersen, Daniel Potts, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Reece Burke, Jordan Clark, and Amari’i Bell, are in the care of the medical team and are unavailable for the upcoming match.
Andros Townsend may return to the starting lineup after coming off the bench in successive fixtures.
Luton Town is likely to maintain their defense-heavy setup.
Liverpool’s Luis Diaz was absent in the last match due to an ongoing situation with his parents in Colombia.
Diaz has been training, and his availability will be determined by Jurgen Klopp.
Other unavailable players for Liverpool include Stefan Bajcetic, Thiago Alcantara, and Andrew Robertson. Ben Doak will undergo a late fitness test.
Liverpool will see several first-team players return to the lineup, including Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez, Ryan Gravenberch, Alexis Mac Allister, and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Possible Starting Lineups
- Kabore, Osho, Lockyer, Mengi, Doughty;
- Nakamba, Barkley;

While Luton Town benefits from a longer recovery period and a strong home record, Liverpool’s well-rested first-teamers are likely to lead the Reds to their fifth consecutive victory.
