Over 3.5 Arsenal team goals

Arsenal will look to improve their chances of winning the Premier League title while pushing Luton further towards relegation when the two teams meet at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday.

Sunday's 0-0 draw against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium has left the Gunners two points behind Liverpool, but they will expect to maintain that gap or move above the Reds when they host the Hatters.

Arsenal are unbeaten in nine in the Premier League, while Luton are winless in 10 in all competitions and in the relegation zone, suggesting this game should only go one way on Wednesday night.

Team news

Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta may opt to make changes for Wednesday's battle as he tries to keep his team fresh, but Bukayo Saka, Gabriel, and Gabriel Martinelli all recovered from their issues to feature against City.

Right-back Jurrien Timber is their only injury woe for Wednesday, but the defender is due to return before the end of the season after undergoing ACL surgery in August.

Leandro Trossard, Fabio Vieira, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Thomas Partey will all be hoping for starts, should Arteta opt to rotate.

Luton midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga cannot feature as he is ineligible to play against his parent club.

Rob Edwards has 13 players in the treatment room, including Reece Burke, Alfie Doughty and Tahith Chong, but their injuries are thought to be minor and they will hope to pass fitness tests to play.

The stats

Arsenal are unbeaten in nine Premier League matches, winning eight of those contests.

The Gunners have only lost once at home all season, with West Ham winning 2-0 in December. They have won four in a row since then, scoring 14 goals in the process.

Luton's last win in the top flight came at the end of January, meaning they have now gone nine games without a win in the Premier League.

They have only won twice on their travels in the league, while they have conceded 36 goals away from home in 15 away matches.

Arsenal showcased their defensive skills against City and Wednesday's encounter could allow them to flaunt their offensive talent.

They beat Luton 4-3 in a thrilling first meeting in December, but this game should be more straightforward.

Luton's injuries have decimated their defence and Arsenal need to make a statement in the title race.

With a plethora of options available to Arteta, his team should rack up the goals at the Emirates and pick up a comfortable three points.
