Luton lifted themselves out of the bottom three with a hard-fought 1-2 victory at Everton on Saturday in what was the Hatters' first win of the Premier League season - a huge boost ahead of this fixture against a fellow promoted side.
All the action at Goodison Park took place in the first half, with Luton captain Tom Lockyer putting his side ahead rather fortuitously, before striker Carlton Morris headed in his third goal of the season. Dominic Calvert-Lewin pulled one back for the Toffees, and threatened to draw level in the second half, but Luton held on for an important win.
Burnley, on the other hand, remain in search of their first victory, with their latest outing seeing them rather comfortably beaten by Newcastle on Saturday.
In fairness to the Clarets, they made a good start against the Magpies but were unable to sustain a high level and it wasn't long before they went behind to a fine Miguel Almiron strike. Although the game largely remained in the balance after that, Newcastle rarely looked in danger and deservedly doubled their lead when Alexander Isak converted a 76th-minute penalty.
THE TEAM NEWS
Despite the short turnaround, Rob Edwards will be tempted to field the same XI that started against Everton, although he will need to check on a number of his players before making his team selection.
Tom Lockyer received a knock to the eye over the weekend but it's unlikely to keep him out of this fixture, while Ros Barkley is edging closer to fitness.
PREDICTED XI (3-4-2-1): Kaminski; Burke, Lockyer, Bell; Kabore, Mpanzu, Nakamba, Doughty; Brown, Ogbene, Morris
UNAVAILABLE: Osho (Injured), Potts (Injured), Clark (Injured), Lokonga (Injured)
QUESTIONABLE: Lockyer (Injured), Barkley (Fitness)
Striker Lyle Foster has completed his suspension and is likely to come straight back into the side to give the Clarets some much needed goal threat.
There are as many as six players likely to miss out here, so Vincent Kompany's options for rotation are somewhat limited.
PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Trafford; Roberts, Al Dakhil, Beyer, Taylor; Cullen, Berge; Koleosho, Amdouni, Ramsey; Foster
UNAVAILABLE: Ekdal (Injured), Obafemi (Injured), Benson (Injured), Redmond (Injured), Churlinov (Injured)
QUESTIONABLE: Gudmundsson (Injured)
Luton may have something of a spring in their step here following a much-needed first Premier League victory - something that Burnley are still chasing. Neither side have kept a clean sheet in the division, but this could well be a cagey affair between two sides who will be desperate not to lose to each other. With this in mind, we're expecting a low-scoring affair containing under 2.5 goals at Kenilworth Road.
TIP: UNDER 2.5 GOALS
