Luton vs Arsenal: Gunners look to stretch Premier League lead by five points

Published

on

PREMIER LEAGUE leaders Arsenal face a struggling Luton side in a tasty Tuesday match with so much at stake.

A quickfire double from Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard was enough to see the Gunners pick up all three points against Wolves last Saturday.

And the Gunners’ bitter rivals Tottenham helped them to go a couple of points clear at the top having held Treble-winners Manchester City to a thrilling 3-3 draw on the next day.

Arsenal now have the chance to go five points clear should they get the job done over the Hatters who are lingering near the foot of the table,

However, Rob Edwards’ men will be determined to bounce back from their woeful 3-1 defeat to Brentford.
