Luton vs Crystal Palace stat pack

Before kick-off on Saturday, a number of statistics surrounding the game have emerged, which highlight why Palace are favourites but also the potential threat Luton can provide:

  • The Hatters have won just one of their opening 12 Premier League matches (D3 L8), their fewest victories at this stage of a top-flight season since 1974-75 (W1 D6 L5), when they went on to finish 20th and were relegated.
  • Palace have won five of their past 11 away league matches since Roy Hodgson returned to the club (D2 L4), as many as in their previous 28 on the road (D9 L14).
  • Only Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (13 for Darwin Nunez) and Aston Villa’s Moussa Diaby (11 for Ollie Watkins) have created more chances for a team-mate than Luton’s Alfie Doughty has for Carlton Morris (eight) in this season’s Premier League. Doughty has played the second-most successful crosses (26), while Morris has won the second-most aerial duels (54).
  • This is the first meeting between Luton Town and Crystal Palace since the 2006-07 Championship campaign, with the home side winning both games 2-1 back then.
  • Palace have won just one of their past eight away league games against Luton (D3 L4) - 1-0 in April 1994 thanks to a Chris Coleman strike.
