Lyle Foster to score anytime
Burnley's return to the Premier hasn't been as glamorous as they would've hoped or expected so far given their current predicament. Vincent Kompany and his players have realised the full extent of the step up from the Championship and they are still finding their feet being back amongst the big boys.
One of the few positives of their campaign so far has been striker Lyle Foster. The South African seems to be the only player in claret and blue who has made the leap with relative ease. The 23-year-old has been a regular source of goals for the Clarets this term with four in 11 appearances.
The forward has recently returned to action following a period away from the game due to mental health reasons. His first goal since returning to the team came in the defeat to Aston Villa in their last Premier League encounter, so he has picked up exactly where he left off.
Foster is the main threat Burnley possess and Luton will have to be wary of him when they face him on Friday night.
Over 2.5 goals
We have found the result of this game difficult to call because both these sides have found consistency an issue this season, evidenced by their positions in the table. But they have both shown that they can score goals at this level. Burnley have racked up 20 so far, Luton have managed 23 themselves.
And with this being a big six-pointer, we could be in for a chaotic 90 minutes at Turf Moor, which should deliver chances at both ends. Over 2.5 goals has landed in 11 of Burnley's 20 league fixtures this term, while 13 of Luton's 19 matches have yielded at least three.
This selection came in when the two teams met earlier in the campaign, with Burnley winning 2-1 at Kenilworth Road. There is no doubting that Luton have evolved as a unit since then, with the Hatters having picked up some impressive results, as well as providing challenges for both Manchester City and Arsenal.
All evidence points to over 2.5 goals coming in for this game.
Both teams to score
This leads into our final selection. Both teams were on the scoresheet in their last encounter and we are confident that they will do so again at Turf Moor. Much more of the season has been played and the gaps in the league table are widening. Fixtures between the bottom three have become even more valuable because the points won could end up making a huge difference come the end of term.
Both clubs know how important this clash is and that is going to translate onto the pitch in the players' performances. We've already mentioned Foster's value to Burnley, and we are fancying him to add to his goal tally on Friday, but Luton have attacking threats of their own.
The Hatters have Elijah Adebayo, Carlton Morris, Jacob Brown, Alfie Doughty, Ross Barkley and Andros Townsend, who have all been on the scoresheet this year. Collectively, they can cause some serious problems for Burnley and if anyone is going to score for Luton in this gargantuan contest, your money would be on one of them.
