On Sunday, Luton Town and Liverpool will host a Premier League match at Kenilworth Road.
The hosts lost last week for the third time in their previous four league games, during which they have not won. They suffered their sixth loss of the year, losing 3-1 on the road at Aston Villa. Emiliano Martínez’s own goal in the 83rd minute gave Luton a consolation goal.
Last week, the visitors defeated Nottingham Forest 3-0 at home thanks to goals from Diogo Jota, Darwin Núñez, and Mohamed Salah. It was their seventh victory of the league season. In the Carabao Cup round of 16, the Reds defeated the opposition 2-1 on the road on Wednesday, with Núñez scoring once more.
With 23 points, they are three points behind league leaders Tottenham Hotspur in fourth place in the standings.

The two teams met for the first time in the FA Cup in 1920, and they have now faced each other 38 times in all competitions. With an 18-7 advantage in wins and 13 games ending in ties, the visitors hold the advantage in these matchups as predicted.When they played each other in the FA Cup for the last time, the Reds won 5-0 at home in the third-round replay.

The Reds have lost both of their most recent away Premier League games—a 2-2 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion last month and a setback to Tottenham in September.
Liverpool vs. Luton Town Prediction
This season, the Hatters have only managed two victories in 12 games in all competitions. Their lone Premier League victory this season came from an away victory over Everton in September. In their last six home games versus the Reds, they have only lost once.
In addition to Mads Andersen, who isn’t likely to play again until next year, the confirmed absences are Jordan Clark, Reece Burke, Albert-Mboyo Sambi Lokonga, and Dan Potts. Following a successful recovery from a thigh injury, Amari’i Bell will take a late fitness test.
Due to injuries, Andy Robertson and Thiago Alcântara were unable to play for the visitors. Following his return to training, Luis Diaz, a winger from Colombia, will have a final fitness test, according to Klopp.
We predict Liverpool to win easily given their current form and goal scoring histories against the other team.
Luton Town 1-2 Liverpool is the prediction.
