Ahead of this meeting, Everton haven’t won at home in the past 3 league games.
Since being beaten in their last game against Exeter City in EFL Cup competition, Luton Town and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.

The numbers tell their own story, and Luton Town have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 9 goals in all. Defensively, Luton Town have clearly had some problems. Such a pattern might not be continued into this match, though.
Going into this encounter, Luton Town have not won away from home in their last 5 league games.
ℹ️ Team News: Everton
Seamus Coleman (Knee Injury), Dele Alli (Muscle partial avulsion) and Jack Harrison (Hip Injury) will be missing for Everton gaffer Sean Dyche.
It’s our opinion that The Toffees look set to use the 4-2-3-1 system for this one, beginning the first half with Jordan Pickford, Ashley Young, Jarrad Branthwaite, James Tarkowski, Vitali Mykolenko, Amadou Onana, Idrissa Gueye, James Garner, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Dwight McNeil and Beto.
ℹ️ Team News: Luton Town
With a fully injury-free squad available for selection, the Luton Town manager Rob Edwards has no fitness concerns to report before this clash.
We’re of the thinking that The Hatters might utilise a 4-3-3 lineup, choosing Thomas Kaminski, Issa Kabore, Reece Burke, Tom Lockyer, Amarii Bell, Ryan Giles, Marvelous Nakamba, Alfie Doughty, Jacob Brown, Carlton Morris and Chiedozie Ogbene.
It looks to us that Everton will, in all likelihood, get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
At the other end, Luton Town may well struggle finding the net themselves although we do think that they will probably end up scoring.
We can therefore see a decent 3-1 winning score for Everton after 90 minutes.
