As the Premier League season draws to a close, Luton Town will host Fulham at Kenilworth Road on Sunday afternoon. This match is pivotal for both teams, albeit for different reasons.

While Luton Town is fighting to avoid relegation with a highly improbable outcome needed to do so, Fulham is aiming to finish as high as possible in the standings.

Match Preview

Luton Town

Luton Town enters this match knowing that they need a monumental victory to keep their Premier League survival hopes alive.

The Hatters are currently three points behind Nottingham Forest and have a significant goal difference deficit of 12 goals.

Despite their struggles, Luton has shown resilience at home, collecting five points from their last four games at Kenilworth Road.

Fulham

On the other hand, Fulham has seen a dip in form recently, winning only one of their last eight Premier League matches.

The Cottagers have slipped to 14th in the table, but they still have a chance to climb higher.

A win could potentially see them finish in 12th place, depending on other results.

Team News

Luton Town

The Hatters are likely to be without Ross Barkley, who suffered a calf injury against West Ham.

Mads Andersen and Dan Potts may return if fit, with Jordan Clark expected to replace Barkley in midfield. Chiedozie Ogbene could start at right wing-back.

With Nottingham Forest three points ahead of them and a goal difference of twelve to overcome, they already look surefire third from bottom.

Fulham

Fulham will be without Issa Diop due to suspension, with Tim Ream expected to replace him in central defence.

Adama Traore might make his first Premier League start of the season, while Harrison Reed and Tom Cairney are in contention for midfield spots.

Predicted Lineups

Luton Town (3-4-2-1): Kaminski; Burke, Mengi, Osho; Ogbene, Lokonga, Clark, Doughty; Morris, Chong; Adebayo.

Fulham (4-2-3-1): Leno; Castagne, Ream, Bassey, Robinson; Reed, Palhinha; Traore, Pereira, Willian; Muniz.

Prediction

Both teams are eager to end the season on a high note, which should make for an entertaining contest.

Despite Luton’s desperate need for an outrageous win, Fulham’s quality might be too much for them. A high-scoring draw seems the most likely outcome, which will officially relegate Luton.

Our Prediction: Luton Town 2-2 Fulham
