As Premier League action unfolds at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday, all eyes are on Arsenal’s clash against Luton, where the current league leaders face a potentially challenging encounter against the outsider, but still a resilient home side. Luton has proven their mettle this season with notable victories against Crystal Palace and draws with Liverpool and Wolves on their home turf.
Arsenal, the league leaders, are coming off a dramatic 89th-minute winner against Brentford in their recent away fixture, coupled with an impressive 6-0 triumph over Lens in the Champions League and a 2-1 victory against Wolves at the Emirates Stadium.
The question on many minds is whether Eddie Nketiah will seize the opportunity against the Premier League outsiders this Tuesday. English-Ghanaian striker has been a consistent presence for the Gunners this season, making 14 appearances, including nine starts and seven substitute appearances.
His total time on the pitch amounts to 820 minutes, during which he has found the back of the net five times. As Arsenal faces Luton, the spotlight is on Nketiah and whether he can continue adding to his goal tally in a game that could prove crucial for the Gunners.
The odds of Nketiah finding the back of the net against Luton according to 1xBet are 2,3.
Luton, despite their recent 3-1 defeat against Brentford, is expected to present a formidable challenge to Arsenal. Notably, six of Luton’s nine Premier League defeats this season have featured under 3.5 goals, and both teams have scored in eight of their last 10 league games. Additionally, three of Arsenal’s four away league victories this season have come by 1-0 scorelines, showcasing a trend of tight contests.
While Arsenal has been dominant at home, their away performances have been less fluent this season, grinding out 1-0 wins in several instances. Luton, with a history of making life difficult for visiting teams at Kenilworth Road, is unlikely to be a pushover.
Will Eddie Nketiah make his mark and contribute to Arsenal’s quest for three points in a challenging away fixture against Luton?
