Luton vs Man City LIVE: Premier League result and reaction as City survive scare

Manchester City ended their four match run without a win as they edged past Luton Town 2-1 at Kenilworth Road in a contest that threatened to end in another negative result for Pep Guardiola’s men.

Without Erling Haaland in the squad, the visitors struggled to capitalise on their possession the first half and, aided by some fine saves from Thomas Kaminski, Lutin kept them at bay. Elijah Adebayo leapt above everyone else to nod home the opener just before the half-time break and Luton took the lead.

In the second half, Man City picked up where they left off and pushes the Hatters deep. Bernardo Silva curled in a superb left-footed strike just after the hour mark to equalise before Jack Grealish slotted home to decisive goal to secure the points for the champions.

Manchester City survive scare in battling comeback win against Luton

16:28 , Mike Jones

Manchester City survived a scare as they recovered from going a goal behind at half-time to put down a brave fight by Luton and battle to a 2-1 Premier League victory at Kenilworth Road.

The champions had been without a victory in four games and that run looked like stretching in the most unlikely circumstances when Elijah Adebayo headed in for Rob Edwards’ side on the stroke of the interval.

City were missing the injured Erling Haaland – with in-form winger Jeremy Doku also ruled out – and looked set to remain seven points off the Premier League summit as Luton bravely held their lead beyond the hour mark.

Then, Pep Guardiola’s side burst to life to revive their title defence, with two goals in three minutes from Bernardo Silva and Jack Grealish turning the game on its head as a famous upset was narrowly bypassed.

Post match reaction from Jack Grealish

16:22 , Mike Jones

Manchester City’s Jack Grealish spoke to Sky Sports after the Luton victory saying: “I think a lot of people like to talk about City and go on like it’s a big crisis, in reality we’ve played very good teams.

“Spurs who’ve been unbelievable, Liverpool who are top, Chelsea and Villa away, who’ve got one of the best records in Europe.

“We knew we had to keep calm today and buzzing to get back to winning ways.”

In real time the challenge doesn’t look too bad but slowed down it seems potentially horrible. VAR decides to take no action against the player though.

Just clipping Foden has saved him there.

Alessia Russo leads statement WSL thrashing as Arsenal tear Chelsea apart

15:02 , Mike Jones

Over in the Women’s Super League, these are the days Alessia Russo joined Arsenal for. In front of a new Women’s Super League record crowd of 59,042, the England striker’s double handed champions Chelsea their first defeat of the season and sparked the title race into life. It was a statement win for Arsenal and a momentous afternoon for Russo, following her transfer from Manchester United this summer. Perhaps now the power shift that move represented is starting to unfold, as Arsenal tore through Chelsea to race away with a crucial victory in a breathless, high-speed clash.

The Blues may still be three points ahead in the table but Arsenal, level in second with Manchester City, are coming for them. Russo’s sublime finish before half-time was the moment the Gunners began to ease clear and after a slow start to the season, Jonas Eidevall’s side have now won seven in a row. As Russo added to Amanda Ilestedt’s first-half header and Beth Mead’s composed finish, Arsenal flexed their strength and handed the champions their first league defeat since March. Russo’s late penalty to make it 4-1 also represented Chelsea’s heaviest WSL defeat since 2018.

45+2 mins: A huge goal takes Luton into the break with a slender lead.

The Premier League champions really seem to be missing the goal threat of Erling Haaland and despite a few good saves from Thomas Kaminski haven’t created the chances their possession and intent should have brought.

Pep Guardiola explains why Erling Haaland is not in the squad

13:31 , Mike Jones

“A bone stress reaction in his foot and after the last game he felt it. He cannot play.” said the Man City boss, “I don’t know [the length of the injury]. Week by week, day by day, we will see what happens.

“We play with 11 that’s for sure. Erling has been so important since he’s arrived that’s for sure. But during the season we see this sort of thing. Injuries, suspensions, problems, we have to adapt.

“Julian Alvarez will be playing [as our centre forward].”

Pep Guardiola not taking Luton for granted as Man City seek end to mini slump

13:30 , Mike Jones

Pep Guardiola believes his Manchester City side face a challenge to get back to winning ways at Luton this weekend.

The champions have gone four games without a Premier League win for the first time since 2017 after successive draws against Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham were followed by defeat at Aston Villa on Wednesday.

They will be expected to put that behind them at Kenilworth Road on Sunday but the promoted Hatters have produced some battling performances on their top-flight return and Guardiola expects another.

The reigning champions allowed 22 shots against Aston Villa and had just two attempts of their own - both figures are their worst in a Premier League game under Pep Guardiola.

Manchester City are winless in four Premier League fixtures (three draws, one loss), equalling their longest such run under Pep Guardiola, set in March and April 2017.

City have not gone five top-flight matches without a victory since a seven-game sequence in October and November 2009, while it has never happened to Pep Guardiola in his managerial career.

The Hatters have won each of their last seven home league fixtures versus reigning top-flight champions, a sequence running from 1985-86 to 1991-92.

Luton’s most recent home league loss against reigning champions was a 2-1 defeat by Liverpool in September 1984.

Luton make three changes to the side that narrowly lost 4-3 to Arsenal on Tuesday.

Defender Tom Lockyer and midfielder Marvelous Nakamba are included in the starting XI following spells out with injury though Gabriel Osho is not included and Issa Kabore is unable to play against his parent club.

Ryan Giles also comes in while midfielder Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu drops to the bench.

Pep Guardiola makes four changes to the Man City team with the big news being the absence of Erling Haaland from the matchday squad.

John Stones, Manuel Akanji and Rico Lewis drop to the bench as Rodri is back alongside Jack Grealish who both missed Wednesday’s loss to Aston Villa with one-match suspensions. Mateo Kovacic and Nathan Ake also return.

‘City are the best’ says Edwards

12:50 , Mike Jones

Luton Town boss Rob Edwards believes that Manchester City are the best team in the Premier League and he is excited to for his team play against them today.

“It’s an exciting game for us, in my opinion City are the best and Guardiola is the best.” said the Hatters’ boss. “A few years ago, when I was a coach at Wolves, I was reading Guardiola’s books, studying his Bayern Munich team and it will be quite an experience going up against him.

“It would be nice to get a bit of time after the game to pick his brains, whether there will be enough time afterwards I’m not sure, but he’s someone you can learn a lot from.”

Rob Edwards on Manchester City

12:45 , Mike Jones

“Man City are amazing. I’ve got such admiration for Guardiola as a manager, wherever he’s been he has been a winner and they have built this football club over the years, it’s incredible to see the culture they have built with the players they have.

“To continuously evolve them and keep winning, including the treble last season, everyone will now be trying to knock them off their pedestal, so it’s a big challenge for them.

“They’ve been in tight games where they could have won all of them, we know how tight games are and that’s just the nature of the Premier League.”

Pep Guardiola needs drastic measures to solve Manchester City’s case of ‘Rodri-dependencia’

12:40 , Mike Jones

Pep Guardiola has made several contributions to the footballing lexicon but among the more famous is one he has come to regret. “The Harry Kane team,” his infamous description of Tottenham, was intended as a compliment but, as Guardiola himself would concede, was incorrect long before a Spurs side shorn of Kane scored three goals at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

It does, however, raise the possibility the same tactic can be used to brand his side. Erling Haaland may have scored 52 goals last season but there are days when Manchester City are “the Rodri team”. And if treble winners can be called a one-man team, they are a very different side without that one man. A 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa marked the fourth match Rodri has sat out due to suspension this season. City have lost all four.

They can feel further from curing their Rodri-dependencia. They mustered a mere two shots at Villa Park, the fewest ever attempted by a Guardiola side in a league match. And if a defensive midfielder might not seem integral to the attack, City have a lone goal in those four outings without Rodri. It is a sign of his ubiquity.

Pep Guardiola is suffering from an incurable case of ‘Rodri-dependencia’

Rodri’s return set to sideline Kalvin Phillips again

12:35 , Mike Jones

Man City will have midfielder Rodri back at Kenilworth Road after he completed his latest ban. The Spaniard has now missed four games through suspension this season and Pep Guardiola’s side have lost them all.

The manager decided not to play Kalvin Phillips when selecting his side against Aston Villa, fuelling further speculation the England midfielder could leave the club in January.

Guardiola said: “I don’t know what will happen. I feel so sorry for my decisions for him. He doesn’t deserve for one second not to have minutes but it’s just that I visualise things and struggle a little to see him.”

Guardiola on City’s recent form

12:30 , Mike Jones

Manchester City are going through a rare spell of indifferent form with three wins and a loss from their last four league games. Pep Guardiola addressed his team’s form ahead of their trip to Luton saying:

“It’s not about complacency. Complacency is arriving late to training, not training good, not doing a good job, it not mattering what happens.

“I’m talking just about bad results. Bad results help you to understand. When you lose games, it is necessary. It’s necessary to live that.

“After, [you] make a step forward. It’s the only way.”

Timing is everything

12:25 , Mike Jones

When Luton secured their promotion to the Premier League via last season’s Sky Bet Championship play-off final, their fans were able to dream of the days when English football’s aristocrats would head for Kenilworth Road.

hey could be forgiven for watching through their fingers when Manchester City make the trip on Sunday.

City, for the first time in seven years, have not won in four league games, but the Hatters have managed only two top-flight victories all season. Few will give the hosts much chance of improving on that statistic this weekend.

Pep Guardiola says Manchester City needed reality check after fourth game without a win

12:20 , Mike Jones

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes the club’s recent slump has delivered a much-needed reality check.

Guardiola says he and his treble-winning players have enjoyed being stroked “like a cat” for too long after their recent successes and it was time they were given a shake.

City were not only beaten but outplayed at Aston Villa on Wednesday – a result which extended their winless run in the Premier League to four games and saw them slip to fourth in the table.

Luton vs Manchester City

10:52 , Mike Jones

Good afternoon and welcome to The Independent’s coverage of today’s Premier League games. Luton are back in action as they host Manchester City at Kenilworth Road.

Rod Edwards will be hoping his team can continue their impressive displays at home with the added twist of taking some points away from the Premier League champions.

Three draws and a defeat from their last four outings has seen City slip down to fourth in the table and leaves Pep Guardiola with the task of reigniting their season.

More dropped points this afternoon would leave them seven behind current leaders Liverpool and there would be little room for manoeuvre.

We’ll have all the latest updates, team news and match action throughout the afternoon so stick around as we build up to kick off at 2pm.
