Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Luton and Tottenham square off against each other at Kenilworth Road in the Premier League round 8 curtain-raiser. The Hatters did well to beat Everton at Goodison Park at the weekend, but they failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to fellow relegation strugglers Burnley in a postponed fixture. Luton obviously struggle at the back, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. Amari Bell limped off with injury in the last league match, with Reece Burke likely to step up, while all Albert Sambi Lokonga, Dan Potts, Jordan Clark, and Gabriel Osho remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Spurs, on the other hand, have been producing fine displays without Harry Kane, who joined Bayern Munich earlier this summer. Tottenham proved their worth in a 2-1 win over Liverpool and given Luton’s shaky defence, away triumph should be considered. The likes of Ivan Perisic, Bryan Gil, Hugo Lloris, and Rodrigo Bentancur are injured for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Heung-min Son):
Over the years Son Heung-Min has established himself as one of the best Asian footballers. Son is a Tottenham Hotspur first-team regular and he played a very important role in Mauro Pochettino’s team in the 2017/2018 Premier League campaign, scoring 12 goals, while making 37 appearances in the process.
The South Korean footballer, who is well known for his speed and a very powerful shot, was born in Chuncheo on 8 July 1992 and he began his youth career at FC Seoul. In 2008 he moved to Hamburger SV, but he made his senior debut for the Bundesliga club two years later. In 2013 he signed a deal with fellow German side Bayer Leverkusen and he scored 21 goals in 62 appearances in the Bundesliga for the BayArena outfit.
In 2015 he signed a five-year contract with Spurs for a fee of £22 million. Son Heung-min made his South Korea debut in a friendly against Syria in 2010.
Highlighted Team (Luton ):
Founded back on April 11, 1885, Luton Town are an English club that compete in the Championship. The Hatters welcome their rivals at Kenilworth Road, the stadium which was opened in 1905. The capacity of the stadium is 10,356, with Luton Borough Council owning the venue.
Luton Town wear orange shirts with a little white and dark blue and dark blue shorts when playing at home, whilst their away colours are white and dark blue. Andy Rennie is the club’s all-time top scorer, netting 162 goals in all competitions for the Hatters. The likes of Joe Payne, Hugh Billington, Bernard Streten, Dyd Owen, Bob Morton, Ron Baynham, Gordon Turner and Mal Donaghy are one of the club’s most notable players as well.
Luton Town finished the 2018/2019 League One campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will compete in the Championship in the 2019/2020 season.
