The Reds will look to go four points clear of Manchester City in the title race at Anfield

Liverpool vs Luton LIVE!



Liverpool will be out to restore some crucial breathing space in a pulsating Premier League title battle as they welcome Luton to fortress Anfield tonight.

After Manchester City’s hard-fought 1-0 home win over Brentford on Tuesday that took them back above resurgent Arsenal and into second place, Pep Guardiola’s defending champions are now just one solitary point behind Jurgen Klopp’s men as the all-important run-in approaches.

But the Reds can push that back out to four with another victory this evening, meaning they won’t be usurped at the summit this weekend when they face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley, regardless of how City and Arsenal fare in top-flight action.

Liverpool have now lost only one of their last 54 home league games, though have been dealt a number of crucial new injury blows this week to the likes of Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota and Curtis Jones, with Mohamed Salah also missing out tonight.

Battling Luton are unchanged and start the night in the relegation zone on goal difference only after a close defeat by Manchester United on Sunday, with the Hatters having not won on any of their previous 14 league trips to Anfield.

2 mins: A positive start from the Reds, with Diaz earning a corner off Mengi and then Luton almost caught out at a short corner as the ball is flicked behind for another.

The Hatters have everyone back in the box as they force Liverpool back and into a reset.

It’s red against white in terms of the kits tonight, with Andy Madley the man in the middle.

Final preparations at Anfield, where Luton have never won on any of their previous 14 visits.

It would be an enormous shock if they were to end that long unbeaten run tonight.

The Hatters have been a bit better on the road of late, but nothing less than a third consecutive win will do for Liverpool less they leave themselves open to being potentially leapfrogged by both Manchester City and Arsenal while on Carabao Cup final duty at the weekend.

41 minutes agoWoodrow continues up front with Luton unchanged

Luton are unchanged from their 2-1 defeat by Manchester United on Sunday, with Cauley Woodrow continuing up front in the absence of sidelined top scorer Elijah Adebayo.

It is only the former Fulham frontman’s second Premier League start in almost 10 years.

It’s exactly the same squad named by Rob Edwards, with no changes on the bench either.

Teden Mengi and Tahith Chong both keep their places having come in for Reece Burke and Jordan Clark at the weekend.

47 minutes agoNo Salah or Nunez as Klopp makes five Liverpool changes

So no Mohamed Salah or Darwin Nunez for Liverpool tonight, as reported earlier.

It’s five changes in total from the side that lined up against Brentford on Saturday, with Ibrahima Konate and Andy Robertson both dropping to the bench as Jarell Quansah and Joe Gomez come into the defence.

Then the injured Curtis Jones, Diogo Jota and Nunez all make way for Ryan Gravenberch, Harvey Elliott and Cody Gakpo.

With all their injury issues, Liverpool name a very youthful bench including youngsters Bobby Clark, Kaide Gordon, James McConnell, Jayden Danns and Trey Nyoni.

Caoimhin Kelleher continues in goal with no Alisson, backed up by Adrian.

1 hour agoRob Edwards: Luton can take confidence from home draw against Liverpool

Luton head into tonight’s game sitting 18th and in the Premier League relegation zone on goal difference after Everton’s 1-1 home draw with fellow strugglers Crystal Palace on Monday evening.

That shock 4-0 drubbing of Brighton last month remains their only league win of 2024 so far, but they were typically impressive and battled hard after falling 2-0 down early to Manchester United in somewhat freak fashion at Kenilworth Road on Sunday.

Highly-rated boss Rob Edwards is certainly under no illusions as to the size of the task facing his side tonight, but believes they can take confidence from November’s 1-1 home draw, when Luis Diaz’s last-gasp effort spared Liverpool’s blushes after a late effort from Tahith Chong appeared to have the Hatters on track for a famous result.

"Playing Liverpool away from home is up there with as difficult it can get," Edwards said.

"It will be a different game and Liverpool are an amazing team.

“It was a really good performance from us and we can certainly take confidence from it.

“We can look back at certain elements of the draw as well, but I think it will be different.

"It's really exciting and we go into it pretty confident as well.

“I know we'll be massive underdogs like we are most of the time this season and we're really looking forward to it."
