Speaking after the defeat, which saw Luton slip one place to 14th in the table, manager Nathan Jones admitted: “We were beaten by a very, very good side, they’re an outstanding side, the best side in the league, and they've shown that today.
“We started very well, two early chances were the best chances of the game, we needed to take that and they were just clinical when they got opportunities.
“They're a very difficult side to play against, they have a real brave structure, we tried to come here and press them but it was difficult. They are a very good side, we were beaten today by the best side in the league.”
Next up, the Hatters take on Swansea City at Kenilworth Road this Saturday lunchtime, and will be out for revenge after losing the reverse fixtures 2-0 back in December last year.
