The Premier League is back in action as Burnley host Luton Town in a battle at the bottom of the standings on Friday, January 12th.
Luton will continue to compete in the FA Cup. Rob Edwards’ team was clearly disappointed as they were outplayed by League One powerhouse Bolton Wanderers at home in a 0-0 draw. The replay will take place at the Toughsheet Community Stadium on Tuesday. Luton can escape the Premier League relegation zone with a third victory from 4 top-tier games this weekend, starting with consecutive victories over Sheffield United and Newcastle United before losing a thrilling five-goal thriller against Chelsea. Luton and 17th-place Everton, who have participated in an extra match than Edwards’s squad, are only one point apart. However, Luton is still looking for their initial Premier League road clean sheet and has few happy memories of previous encounters with their impending hosts.
Burnley provided another Champions League candidate a serious run for their money within the FA Cup, as Tottenham were initially helpless against Vincent Kompany’s resolute backline, after concluding 2023 with a heroic performance against Aston Villa, although lacking any points to demonstrate it. However, with 78 minutes remaining, Pedro Porro, a right-back for Tottenham, scored an incredible long-range goal into the upper corner to eliminate Burnley in the third round. Burnley are going to stay in 19th place despite a reduced Premier League gameweek, given their opponents Luton are situated 4 points ahead of them and Sheffield United, who are 2 points behind the Clarets in the bottom half, have the weekend off. Burnley might potentially tie an undesirable record of dropping 10 of their first 11 home matches in a single season after returning to losing habits at Turf Moor with consecutive 2-0 defeats to Everton and Liverpool after the 5-0 demolition of the Blades in December.
