‘It’s sad to see’: Paul Merson predicts what the score will be between Luton Town and Newcastle United

Following their humiliating elimination in the Carabao Cup at the hands of Chelsea, Eddie Howe’s injured Newcastle Magpies are preparing for what could be an extremely difficult match at Kenilworth Road.



Newcastle appears to have what it takes to defeat Luton. However, Rob Edwards’ squad has occasionally appeared respectable at home, despite their results not reflecting it.


In addition to Newcastle’s injury concerns, this explains why a significant number of Toon supporters are apprehensive about the upcoming match.


These concerns are shared by Paul Merson, who anticipates that the Magpies will continue to struggle away from home.Paul Merson believes Newcastle United and Luton Town will play to a stalemate.

Merson, in his most recent column for Sportskeeda, has made predictions regarding the outcomes of all Premier League games scheduled for this weekend. He forecasts a 1-1 draw between Luton Town and Newcastle United.


He wrote, “I attended the midweek match between Newcastle United and Chelsea.”


“Even though the Magpies’ loss was decided on penalties, they by no means exhibited any fluidity.” “Beating Luton Town at Kenilworth Road is difficult, and this is a difficult matchup to predict.”Newcastle United are far from at full vigor and have suffered far too many injuries to count. Their participant count is currently plummeting like flies.


“Kieran Trippier is currently experiencing difficulty, which is disheartening to observe. It appears that his confidence has diminished following a promising start to the season. I simply believe that this encounter will be extremely challenging for Eddie Howe’s squad.


“It’s difficult to envision Newcastle steamrolling Luton thereafter if they take the lead first. Although Luton is my favorite, I still believe that the spoils could be divided in this contest.”


Newcastle is in a precarious position as it travels to Luton.

Although Newcastle ought to prevail, the outcome will be entirely contingent on the roster that Howe maintains. Particularly unimpressive is our predicted starting eleven, which includes Matt Ritchie, who is expected to make his first Premier League appearance in two years.


Due to the ambiance and physical prowess of Luton, the afternoon may prove to be extremely challenging for us.


Merson has aptly described how a significant number of Newcastle supporters will feel in anticipation of this match.


According to him, we are in no way at our maximum capacity, and Kieran Trippier is at his lowest point in confidence since his time with the club. While it would be optimal if Howe could rest him against Luton, that may not always be feasible.


Calling this one is extremely difficult, and a draw is a reasonable prediction. However, that will not help the situation on Tyneside, which has already been eliminated from the Carabao Cup and the Champions League.
