Manchester City clashed heads with Luton Town at Kenilworth Road earlier today as they hoped to secure all three points on the road in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola‘s men made a dominant start to the game but conceded the opening goal in the first half injury-time when Elijah Adebayo scored with a good header. Man City went into the half-time interval 1-0 down on the scoreline.
