MU welcomed Luton Town in round 12 of the Premier League and coach Ten Hag launched a 4-2-3-1 formation with the appearance of Garnacho and Rashford on the wings. The away team chose to play by knowing who they were and defending with many layers right after the opening whistle.
The “Red Devils” had difficulty deploying the game and Ten Hag directed the students to play on the boundary. In the 10th minute, Rashford crossed the ball well from the right wing but Hojlund missed the opportunity to cushion the ball at close range. In the following minutes, MU switched to long-range shooting, unfortunately there was no dangerous situation.
At the end of the half, MU had a great opportunity to open the score when Hojlund eliminated all the away team’s defenders, but Garnacho was too hesitant in facing goalkeeper Kaminski. Therefore, the match still did not have an opening goal after the first 45 minutes.
In the second half, MU continued to attack from the beginning. Hojlund threw a header but Kaminski still successfully saved. After many efforts, the “Red Devils” finally scored. In the 59th minute, Rashford stretched, the ball bounced off McTominay’s foot and Lindelof responded with an accurate shot to open the score.
Luton Town pressed forward to attack and find an equalizer immediately. MU’s defense appeared to be lacking in strength, but the away team could not take advantage. In the opposite direction, the “Red Devils” still have dangerous attack situations. Unfortunately, neither Rashford nor McTominay could score. In the end, MU won at least against Luton Town.

Man United: Onana, Regulion, Victor Lindelof, Maguire, Dalot, McTominay, Eriksen, Fernandes, Rashford, Garnacho, Hojlund

Man Utd is in crisis, it can be easily concluded. The loss to Copenhagen in the Champions League was the third defeat in the last 4 matches for Ten Hag teachers and students. Returning to the Premier League with the mentality that they are likely to be eliminated in the Champions League, the already bad morale of United players will get even worse. In this situation, the Red Devils could not ask for a better opponent than Luton. A home win would be the best way to proceed to the national team break, thereby giving Ten Hag more time to reflect on improving the future.
For Luton, 1 point won against Liverpool last weekend was enough to help this team temporarily escape the red light area. The tenacious fighting spirit needs to be promoted when Luton marches to Old Trafford. The Red Devils cannot now be stronger than Liverpool, thereby giving Luton the basis to think of an unexpected scenario. Remember, Luton has won 4 points in the last 3 matches away from home.
