Manchester City travel south to face Premier League new boys Luton Town. Both sides need the three points, but City desperately need to end a run of four Premier League matches without a win. And, with Arsenal dropping points, a City win will keep them firmly in the mix.
As always, our team are on hand to give us their gut feelings and predictions, so without further ado, here’s what our team thinks.
Need a win. Will be tough, but they’re coming off an emotional loss. Give me a fairly straight forward win.
Luton 0-2 City
You have to think Pep will give them a huge kick up the backside after this poor run. If he doesn’t, we might have to start thinking about whether or not the wheels might actually, really, be coming off. I think this will be turning point, the end of the mini-blip and the beginning of City’s characteristic mid-season charge towards the title.
Luton Town 1-4 City
It’s been quite some time since City have had such a poor run of results in the league. And still, the three-time Champions of England are just seven points off leaders Liverpool. A trip to Bedfordshire should be a nice boost for the Mancunian confidence. The Hatters have just 9 points from their 15 matches and have lost 4 of their last 6. Rodri returns alongside Grealish and City cruise in a get-right match.
Luton 1-4 City
This has the potential to be a banana skin. It also has the potential to be a goal fest. Either way, I think both teams will score. I do think City will win this one and, even though Luton will get a goal, City will have too much for them.
Luton 1-5 City
What Happened Last Week?
Well, Saul got the score spot on, but for the wrong side. He got the right goal difference and number of goals, so he gets an incredible four points. Thomas got the right goal difference, so two points there, everyone else was pretty crap to be honest...as usual. Table to follow once some technical difficulties are resolved. Spoiler: Saul is beginning to break away.
