On Sunday, Manchester United will play Luton Town at Kenilworth Road to keep their recent winning streak going.

Ten Hag’s United team is now riding a six-game undefeated streak in all competitions leading up to the start of 2024. The 3-2 comeback win over Aston Villa on Boxing Day was the spark that ignited United’s languid season.

As a result of their impressive start to the new year, Manchester United are now in sixth place in the Premier League, just below the top four.

Last Saturday, Luton were unexpectedly defeated at home by Sheffield United, despite their strong run of form. As a result of Rob Edwards’s sensible management style, the Hatters have performed well in their first season in the Premier League. With a real chance of survival riding on Sunday’s encounter, Luton will be playing from 17th place in the league.

Betting tips: Luton x Manchester United

Check out our predictions of the day for Luton vs. Manchester United

Prediction 1: Luton x Manchester United / Manchester United to win

In the rematch, United won thanks to a goal from Victor Lindelof at a nervous Old Trafford, where they had to fight for their win. That’s exactly what Luton makes their opponents do, and they’re far more difficult to defeat while playing at home.

At Kenilworth Road, the Hatters were within striking distance of a historic win against Liverpool and had previously taken Manchester City and Arsenal to their knees.

Ten Hag’s team has been on a tear lately, finding ways to win games while facing tactically dubious Manchester United teams. Sunday should be a breeze for them. That trend could continue this next weekend, even if they don’t deserve it.

Prediction 2: Luton x Manchester United / Manchester United to win and both teams to score

Before this weekend, the hosts had lost three of their six matches against the top six, and five of those losses had been on home turf. With seven losses out of twelve home matches this season, it’s hard to see the Hatters being able to hold their own against United, who are riding high after their best victory of the season.

United has won eleven consecutive matches against promoted teams, while Erik ten Hag has won all nine Premier League matches against promoted teams. United has a winning record against clubs in the league’s bottom half; thus, they should win this match.

Both teams have scored in five of Luton’s previous six games, and the Hatters have scored in eleven of their twelve home games, so they are a potent goal threat. Picking United to win and both sides to achieve is a solid bet, and a 2-1 win also seems like a solid correct score choice.

Prediction 3: Luton x Manchester United / Rasmus Hojlund to score anytime

United have won three in a row in the league, bringing their current winning streak to five games. This has put them in a position to challenge for a spot in the top four. It would help if you didn’t write off this squad because they had a rough time at Old Trafford. Rasmus Hojlund has been instrumental in their success, scoring in five straight games and being more engaged in the action overall. He will be in his best form again for this game.
