Luton Town vs Leicester City Match Preview
Leicester City are third in the Premier League table and their promising season can take another step forward when they visit Luton Town in this Carabao Cup third-round tie.
The Foxes have lost only once so far this term, narrowly away to Manchester United having bossed the second half in particular, and they came from behind to win 2-1 against Tottenham on Saturday when both teams had a goal ruled out by VAR.
Having reached the quarter-finals of this competition for the last two years before losing to eventual winners Manchester City, Brendan Rodgers’ side will feel they could enjoy another lengthy run as part of their bid to break back into the top six – which, of course, they did so incredibly in 2015-16 when they became champions of England at odds of 5,000/1.
Luton, meanwhile, are back in the Championship after dropping out of the Football League for a spell and staying up will be the main priority for them after back-to-back promotions – they currently sit 21st in the table after losing their last two games.
Graeme Jones’ side have found the Carabao Cup palatable as they have scored three goals both times in winning each of their two ties comfortably against Ipswich and Cardiff.
But Leicester are a different kettle of fish from those opponents and with Rodgers having good squad depth to rotate his team, especially in midfield, the top-flight club are expected to have few problems in reaching the last 16.
