Onyedinma in: Luton Town’s best starting XI from what we’ve seen so far this season – Agreed?

Published

on

Picking up 14 points from their opening 11 games, it has been a rollercoaster of a start for The Hatters. 

A convincing opening day victory against Peterborough came before a 5-0 loss against Birmingham City, with the latest surprising result being a 5-0 win at home to high-flying Coventry City.

The Hatters, who currently sit in 13th place, saw nine fresh faces arrive at Kenilworth Road this summer, with Elliot Thorpe the latest name to put pen-to-paper. 

Drawing 0-0 with Huddersfield Town in their latest Championship encounter, Luton have now kept five second-tier clean sheets. 

After this international break, Nathan Jones will be hoping to have more of his squad available than he has seen in recent weeks.

1) When was Luton Town founded?

The Hatters travel to Millwall a week on Saturday, and whilst we wait for that day to come around, here we have compiled Luton’s best starting XI from what we have seen thus far. 

Simon Sluga is joint top of the clean sheets table at the moment, picking up five thus far, with the Croatian international solidifying his place in the starting line up over the last couple of years.

With Tom Lockyer also impressing early in this campaign, Reece Burke just about pips the Welsh international to this side, with the 25-year-old putting in several solid performances for The Hatters, whilst also proving to be a comfortable option in possession.

Sonny Bradley has started the last two games for Luton, after spending time absent, and it is no coincidence that Luton have kept two clean sheets. The captain’s aerial prowess and competence in possession makes him such an important player.

Kal Naismith has perhaps been the standout defender thus far this season, winning the club’s Player of the Month award in August. The versatile option has been solid defensively and he also has the ability to bring the ball out and play.

James Bree and Amari’i Bell both bring exciting, attacking football to the wing-back role, whilst both are also defensively strong.

Henri Lansbury and Luke Berry have been excellent for Luton this season. The former’s technical ability and Championship know-how, coupled with the latter’s desire to press and create, make them an exceptional duo.

Harry Cornick is enjoying his best spell at Luton in his entire career at present, causing chaos with his direct running and improved final ball.

Fred Onyedinma has spent the large majority of the season injured, but when on the pitch, he has been mightily impressive.

Elijah Adebayo has five goals to his name already this season, with his physicality and intelligence causing problems for opposing defences thus far.
