Luton team news

As per FotMob, the home team have a trio of doubtful players heading into this match. Rob Edwards could be without Reece Burks, Daniel Potts and Cauley Woodrow as all three players remain doubtful for this fixture.

Newcastle team news

How long have you got? We all know that there's an injury crisis at St James Park, so let's test my memory, shall we?

Firstly, Nick Pope is injured and won't be back until next year, so he won't feature in this game. Defenders Matt Targett, Emil Krafth, Javier Manquillo and Fabian Schar are all ruled out, with the latter picking up an unfortunate injury in the last Premier League match against Fulham.

Moving into the midfield, Joe Willock, Elliot Anderson and Joelinton are all injured, with Sandro Tonali also suspended for some time. There is a possibility Joelinton could be free for this match as Howe hasn't revealed too much, but it's a race against time.

In the attack, Harvey Barnes and Jacob Murphy are completely ruled out on the wing, while Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon face a race against time to be fit - Of the two, Isak is the most likely to play against Luton, with Gordon expected to miss the match at this point in time...

Predicted Luton vs Newcastle lineups

Predicted Luton lineup vs Newcastle: Kaminski; Mengi, Lockyer, Bell, Doughty; Mpanzu, Barkley, Giles; Townsend, Adebayo, Brown

Predicted Newcastle lineup vs Luton: Dubravka; Trippier, Lascelles, Botman, Burn; Guimaraes, Miley, Longstaff; Almiron, Isak, Wilson

Luton vs Newcastle prediction

We have our fair share of injuries and our away record is poor but Luton have lost their last three league games, so I can't see us dropping points here. With both Isak and Wilson in the starting eleven, it should be a comfortable 3-0 win to Newcastle.
