Luton are doing quite well, it’s a tricky fixture for Manchester United, especially after their defeat on the opening weekend against Crystal Palace.
I think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might play a stronger squad than he would have if they had won that game.
A lot of the players didn’t look 100% match fit at the weekend and you’d expect some of the guys who didn’t come in against Palace and play from the start this time around.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Mason Greenwood should get a start and I’d imagine their new boy Donny van de Beek will start as well.
They’re going to have Dean Henderson in goal and he’s definitely up there with some of the best goalkeepers in the league and you wouldn’t be surprised if he takes that No.1 jersey off David de Gea as the season progresses.
I think it will be a strong United starting XI and you don’t want to start the season with two defeats on the spin.
As mentioned, Luton Town are in fine form. They started the season very well with four wins from four in all competitions and just one defeat in their last 16 in all competitions.
They’ll be looking for their main man James Collins to convert any chances that come his way and he’s also started the season well and scored a hat-trick in the opening round.
I think United’s team will be too strong. Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, I think two of those three will start up front tonight with Odion Ighalo as well.
I think Luton can score but Man United will win and progress so I like Man United to Win and Both Teams To Score.
Mason Greenwood to Score First is the value pick out of Manchester United’s forwards. He’s the biggest priced selection out of himself, Rashford, Martial and Ighalo.
He didn’t start at the weekend so I’d expect him to start today and he needs to get himself up to match fitness.
He’s a great finisher as we all know. He only needs half a chance, he’s so quick, gets off accurate shots and finds the corners so well, so I think he’s the value play in the first goal scorer market tonight.
