Separated by 15 places and 13 points in the embryonic Premier League Table, Luton Town host us at Kenilworth Road in Saturday's early kickoff, wherewe can rise to the summit with victory. The Hatters were subjected to a 2-1 beating at the hands of Burnley in midweek, while we overcame Liverpool by the same scoreline thanks to an already-infamous VAR clanger

Spurs
Even with two extra men on the field owing to Jones and Jota's red cards, we - who had broken the deadlock through Son before Gakpo's leveller - found it impossible to penetrate a well-organised Reds block, until one of Klopp's long-serving defenders undid all his side's hard work right at the death.

With the final attack of the game, Matip stuck out a leg in an attempt to clear Porro’s cross to safety, but the defender only succeeded in firing the ball into the roof of his own net, igniting our unrestrained celebrations in North London before the PGMOL found themselves at the centre of a scandal.

Just two minutes before Son's opener, Diaz had a goal wrongly ruled out for offside by the linesman and VAR official Darren England - who made a "significant human error" at Stockley Park - and Liverpool head coach Klopp has publicly called for the match to be replayed after England's inexplicable gaffe.

The German's startling request may fall on deaf ears, but as for us, we have quietly gone about our business on the training pitches amid the latest VAR storm, while sitting pretty in second place in the table and just one point behind Manchester City, who we will leapfrog - for a day at least - should we overcome the Hatters here.


The jury is still out over our title credentials, but Matip's wild slice means that we have still scored at least twice in all of our Premier League games under Postecoglou, who leads us out for our first competitive game against Luton Town since 1992


Luton Town
Entering their postponed clash with Burnley on cloud nine, having achieved their first-ever Premier League maximum away to Everton at the weekend, Luton Town were given a harsh welcome back to Kenilworth Road by a Clarets side also seeking their maiden success of the top-flight season.

Burnley’s strike on the stroke of half time saw Knompany's charges enter the break a goal to the good, and while Adebayo appeared to have done enough to secure a point for the Hatters against their fellow newly-promoted opponents, Burnley restored their slender advantage just 65 seconds later through Larsen.

Failure to put Burnley to the sword means that Luton are now the first team in 13 years to fail to win any of their opening three Premier League home games - the doomed 2010-11 Blackpool crop were the most recent victims of such a streak - but a particularly upbeat Edwards did not have a bad word to say about his side's valiant second-half showing.

Despite only taking one point from nine on offer at Kenilworth Road so far this season, Luton are dangling just above the dotted line in 17th place thanks to their superior goal difference over 18th-placed Burnley, and Hatters fans would certainly accept such a ranking come the close of the curtain in May.


However, the hosts have now gone nine games in all competitions without keeping a single clean sheet this season, and a fresh defensive injury blow does not provide reassurance before the visit by us whose two-goal hot streak was prolonged in the most controversial of controversial circumstances.

Head-to-Head

We first played Luton on Saturday 28th January 1933 where they beat us 2-0 in the FA Cup. We have gone on to play each other 48 times, where we have won 22, they have won 9 and 17 were draws.
