Kenilworth Road is set to host Super Sunday for the first time as Luton Town welcome Liverpool in the Premier League, live on Sky Sports in the UK.
Rob Edwards’ Hatters fell to defeat last weekend when they visited Aston Villa after a remarkable comeback from two goals down at Nottingham Forest a week previously.
Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool sit in fourth place in the Premier League and are undefeated in their last three league games following victory against Forest.
Klopp has transformed Liverpool since his arrival in 2015, replacing Brendan Rodgers whilst the Reds were 10th in the Premier League.
Since Klopp’s appointment, the stagnated Liverpool side that Klopp inherited quickly became a challenging force in the top-flight again – the Reds have battled with Manchester City across multiple seasons, winning a Premier League title, a Champions League title, an FA Cup and a League Cup.
Egyptian international Mohamed Salah has had 32 Premier League goal involvements in 2023, only City’s Erling Haaland has more.
Liverpool have lost just one of their last 21 Premier League games but have lost their last two away games against newly promoted sides.
Only three players have created more chances in the Premier League this season than Hungarian international Dominik Szoboszlai, who joined the club this summer from RB Leipzig.
Last meeting at the Kenny
League One Luton Town forced the 2007 Champions League finalists Liverpool to a replay after drawing their third round tie in January 2008.
Peter Crouch thought he had booked Liverpool’s place in the fourth round when he scored in the 73rd minute before John Arne Riise put the ball in his own net three minutes later.
Last time out
The Hatters’ visit to Villa Park ended with Luton Town leaving empty handed after a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa in the Premier League.
John McGinn, Moussa Diaby and a Tom Lockyer own goal was enough for Villa to take the three points; the Town’s consolation coming by an Emiliano Martinez own goal.
Amari’i Bell, Reece Burke, Mads Andersen, Dan Potts, Luke Berry and Jordan Clark remain sidelined and unavailable for selection – despite a number of those making good progress in their recoveries.

56 yellow cards and two red cards have been handed out by Madley across his 11 games this season.
