Three teams have gained promotion to the Premier League for next season. One of those teams we will look at today with the help of Fantasy Football Scout. So, what should we expect from Luton and what can we learn?
We will assess Rob Edwards’ management style, preferred tactics, tendency to rotate and openness with the press ahead of the Hatters’ Fantasy Premier League (FPL) debut, as well as looking at areas of his squad he might strengthen in.
What tactics do Luton play under Edwards?
Since taking over from Southampton-bound Nathan Jones last November, Edwards has embraced the already-established 3-5-2 formation that took them to sixth place and a play-off defeat in 2021/22. In fairness, he similarly deployed a wing-back system during the promotion season at Forest Green Rovers and used it during his short, ill-fated spell at Luton’s arch-rivals Watford.
The Hatters are a classic case of the sum being greater than its parts. They have very little Premier League experience in the current squad and even less once loanee Marvelous Nakamba returns to Aston Villa. What’s left is a handful of top-flight appearances. These come from back-up players such as Reece Burke, Henri Lansbury, Luke Freeman and Cauley Woodrow.
