With home advantage, Luton Town entered the game confidently and played fairly with Liverpool. However, it did not take long for the “Red Brigade” to gain control of the match. In the 5th minute, Nunez curled dangerously, forcing Luton Town goalkeeper Kaminski to dive in to block.
At the 13th minute, it was still Nunez who neatly controlled the ball and shot against the crossbar of Luton Town’s goal. Just 3 minutes later, goalkeeper Kaminski once again showed his talent to block the Uruguayan striker’s curling shot.
During the remainder of the first half, Liverpool continued to create a number of good opportunities towards Luton Town’s goal. However, neither Salah nor Jota could convert into goals.
In the second half, Liverpool and Luton Town created a tit-for-tat match towards each other’s goals. In the 65th minute, Ogbene broke through on the left wing, passed two Liverpool players and then passed for Morris to finish, but goalkeeper Alisson was able to block it.
Just 5 minutes later, Nunez lifted the ball into the air from close range after Salah’s clear pass. Wasting the opportunity, Liverpool had to pay the price in the 80th minute. From a counterattack, Kabore stretched just enough for Tahith Chong, a former MU player, to score from close range to open the score for Luton Town.
It seemed that Liverpool would have to leave empty-handed, but right in the extra minutes, substitute Luis Diaz jumped high and headed in a dramatic draw. With this result, the “Red Brigade” now has 24 points and climbed to 3rd place on the Premier League rankings, exactly 1 win behind leading team Man City.
Meanwhile, Luton Town has accumulated 6 points to temporarily escape the relegation group.

Liverpool is returning to its “winning machine” image with impressive performances. Since the beginning of the season, the Anfield team has only received 1 defeat after 15 matches in all competitions (1-2 against Tottenham on September 30).
In attack, Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota or Cody Gakpo all know how to shine to “share the fire” with Mohamed Salah. Not only that, the defense also improved significantly in form to help Liverpool have the best defensive record in the Premier League (9 goals conceded, equal to Man City, Tottenham and Arsenal).
Currently, Liverpool is ranked 4th with 23 points from 10 matches. In the context of Arsenal (3rd place, 24 points) having just lost to Newcastle, Liverpool is full of opportunities to “occupy” the top 3 if they overcome Luton Town.
Obviously, this is a goal within reach of coach Jurgen Klopp and his team because Luton has only won 1 match since the beginning of the season and is in 18th place (5 points). Notably, the Premier League rookie has not yet won any home field (1 draw, 3 losses).
