How to watch and follow United v Luton

Thursday 09 November 2023 14:54

Manchester United's first-ever Premier League meeting with Luton Town takes place on Saturday afternoon at Old Trafford.

The Reds' last league meeting with the Hatters was in 1992, shortly before the Premier League’s inception, and since their relegation that year, Luton had not returned to the top-flight until their promotion last terrm.

However, we did come up against this weekend's opponents in 2020, when United recorded a 3-0 victory at Kenilworth Road in the Carabao Cup third round. 

Erik ten Hag's side will be looking to provide a strong response after Wednesday's dramatic 4-3 defeat to FC Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League.

Due to Saturday's game starting at 15:00 GMT, our meeting with Luton will not be shown live in the UK.

However, you can follow live updates in the United App and across our Match Centre on, with live radio commentary available throughout the 90 minutes. 

You can also enjoy our exclusive build-up and post-match reaction via our Match Day Live show on MUTV, commencing at 13:55 GMT.


Two-minute highlights will be available to watch two hours after the final whistle, with Full 90 and 90 in 20 editions set to follow at midnight. 


Marcus Rashford recovered from a small knock to start our midweek trip to Copenhagen, before harshly being sent off towards the closing stages of the first half. However, our no.10 will be available to face Luton as the suspension applies to European fixtures only. 

Jonny Evans is a doubt after limping off at the Parken Stadium. Casemiro, Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia and Lisandro Martinez remain on the sidelines, while Amad has recently returned to individual training at Carrington.

For the visitors, Amari'i Bell, Reece Burke, Mads Andersen, Dan Potts, Luke Berry, Sambi Lokonga and Jordan Clark could all be unavailable through injury. 

Former Reds Teden Mengi and Tahith Chong could feature against their former side at Old Trafford, with the latter on the scoresheet against Liverpool last weekend.

United Academy graduate Mengi has started Luton's last three games at centre-back.


Luton currently reside just outside the bottom three on goal difference in their maiden Premier League campaign, with one win, three draws and seven defeats from their 11 league games so far. 

Saturday's opponents produced an impressive performance last time out to draw 1-1 with Liverpool at Kenilworth Road. The Hatters were unfortunate not to secure all three points due to Luis Diaz's late equaliser. 

Luton have experienced mixed results on their travels recently, with a 3-1 loss at Aston Villa, a late comeback to draw 2-2 with Nottingham Forest and a 2-1 victory over Everton. 

Despite a run of five games without a goal, striker Carlton Morris carries the biggest threat in their attack. The Englishman has previously found the net against Brighton, Wolves and Everton in 2023/24. 

Carlton Morris has caught the eye for Luton so far this season in attack.


Rob Edwards has been at helm at Kenilworth Road since November 2022, where he has enjoyed great success after guiding Luton to the Premier League for the first time in the club's history. 

Before taking over the Bedfordshire side, the 40-year-old's previous clubs include Wolves (interim), Forest Green Rovers, where he achieved promotion to League One, and Watford.

Edwards playing career was primarily in the Championship with a number of different clubs, but the former midfielder did feature a handful of times in the top flight with Aston Villa and Blackpool. 

The Hatters boss also represented Wales 15 times on the international stage, before retiring at 30 years old and trying his hand at coaching.
