Goal Scorer:

Luton
The home side will be without the services of Tom Lockyer (cardiac issues) and Marvelous Nakamba (knee) until the end of the season. Alfie Doughty is expected to return from his knock here. Albert Sambi Lokonga, Jacob Brown, and Mads Andersen are long-term absentees. They are sidelined with knee, thigh and calf injuries respectively. Elijah Adebayo misses out with a thigh problem.
Luton are likely to shape up in a 3-4-2-1 formation here, with Tim Krul in goal. In the back three, Reece Burke will start alongside Teden Mengi and Amari’i Bell. Chiedozie Ogbene and Alfie Doughty will start as the wing-backs here. They will look to keep things compact at the back and nullify the threat from the wide areas.

In the middle of the park, Ross Barkley will start alongside Jordan Clark. The two players will look to keep things compact in the middle and help out defensively.

Tahith Chong and Andros Townsend will start as the attacking midfielders here. They will look to pack the midfield and help out the side defensively. They will drift out from time to time to add creativity and width to the side as well. Carlton Morris will lead the line for Luton Town against Manchester City.

Probable Lineup (3-4-2-1): Krul; Burke, Mengi, Bell; Ogbene, Clark, Barkley, Doughty; Chong, Townsend; Morris

Manchester City
Josko Gvardiol is the only absentee here, with an ankle injury. He is expected to return early next month. Manchester City are likely to rotate their squad against Luton Town, and they will shape up in a 3-4-2-1 formation, with Stefan Ortega in goal.

In the back three, Kyle Walker will start alongside Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake. Bernardo Silva and Jeremy Doku will be deployed as the wingers here, and they will look to create goalscoring opportunities and provide width to the side.

Rodri will start in the middle of the park alongside John Stones, and the two players will look to provide defensive cover to the side and break up opposition attacks. Kevin De Bruyne and Julian Alvarez will start in the attacking midfield roles, and they will look to link up with the attack and create goalscoring opportunities in the final third. Erling Haaland will lead the line for Manchester City.

Probable Lineup (3-4-2-1): Ortega; Walker, Dias, Ake; Silva, Rodri, Stones, Doku; De Bruyne, Alvarez; Haaland
Prediction: Luton Town 1-3 Manchester City
