However, the hosts twice fought back and threatened to win when Elijah Adebayo and Ross Barkley scored eight minutes after the break, with Arsenal goalkeeper David Raya culpable for both goals.

Luton went toe to toe with the league leaders in the early stages. Still, the Gunners pounced after Thomas Kaminski had to kick the ball out of play following a poor back pass, Bukayo Saka teeing up Gabriel Martinelli for the 20th-minute opener to undo all the home side’s good early work.
