Spurs have won five of their seven league matches this season, and another victory this weekend would take them top of the table for 24 hours at least, until the meeting between Arsenal and Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Luton, who have quickly realised the pressures and challenges of Premier League football, will be keen to bounce back from their disappointing home defeat to Burnley on Tuesday.

The Hatters' form at Kenilworth Road this season looks crucial to their hopes to staying in the top flight, and they have become the first Premier League side to fail to win any of their first three home matches in the competition since Blackpool in 2010.

Team news

Ross Barkley could feature against Spurs having returned to training. However Amari'i Bell, who suffered a hamstring injury against Burnley, will likely miss out along with Gabriel Osho, Dan Potts, Jordan Clark and Albert Sambi Lokonga.

Spurs head into the weekend depleted in wide areas, with winger Manor Solomon the latest to suffer an injury, joining Brennan Johnson and Ivan Perisic on the sidelines. Bryan Gil and Giovani Lo Celso have been in training so could return to the squad, but Rodrigo Bentancur and Ryan Sessegnon remain out.

Key facts

Luton boss Rob Edwards is looking to be the first Welsh manager to win a Premier League match against Spurs since Mark Hughes with Stoke City in May 2015.

Spurs have won 12 of their last 14 Premier League matches against promoted sides, already beating Burnley and Sheffield United this season. They've not lost to a side playing their debut season in the competition since 2010/11 (3-1 against Blackpool).

Luton have won only one of their last 10 home league matches against London sides, beating Queens Park Rangers 3-1 in the Championship in October last season.

Son Heung-min has scored six goals in his last four Premier League appearances for Spurs, as many as he had in his previous 23 combined. He's also been involved in 31 goals in his last 32 appearances against promoted sides, netting a hat-trick at Burnley earlier this season.

What the managers say

Rob Edwards“When you get knocked down, you’ve got to get up. We’re looking for a positive reaction and we’re looking forward to it.

[Spurs] have world-class players, household names, players who our fans have watched on the TV for a long time. We hope our fans find their voices and that we give them a performance to sing about. We will give [Spurs] the full Kenny (Kenilworth Road) experience.” 

Ange Postecoglou: “It’ll be a tough game, especially at their ground. You look at all their games... maybe the results haven’t been as positive as they would have liked but they’ve all been tight games. They’ve scored in just about all of them and they’re in a position now where they have to fight for everything, and we’re going to have to do the same.

“We’re going to have to be really strong, playing our football, matching what they have and try to come away with a positive result from a difficult venue.”
