Rashford is struggling for form, Saliba is gunning for City and Klopp is looking to beat De Zerbi for the first time

For all the Ange-vibe feelgood factor coursing through Tottenham, Postecoglou’s side have been snatching their victories rather than romping to them – the wins over Sheffield United and Liverpool required dramatic late goals and VAR furore, respectively. Ominously for Luton, though, the one time Spurs have properly hammered someone this season was a 5-2 away win against another promoted side, Burnley, to whom the Hatters lost, dispiritingly, on Tuesday. That defeat – coming on the back of the encouraging and deserved win at Everton – taught Luton a lesson in sharpening up in both boxes, which they will need to heed at Kenilworth Road. They may be encouraged to go as direct as they did against Burnley given how Spurs toiled against Sheffield United before that late turnaround, but Rob Edwards is canny enough to switch things around within games. He’ll need to be here. Tom Davies
