Despite City’s dominance in the first half, with numerous attempts on goal and saves forced from Luton’s goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski, they found themselves trailing. A rare surge forward orchestrated by Ross Barkley set up Adebayo’s headed goal, leaving Guardiola visibly frustrated.

In the second half, City responded with determination. Rodri, back in the lineup, navigated through Luton’s defensive setup, and Bernardo Silva capitalized on the opportunity, equalizing with City’s 15th shot of the game.

Jack Grealish, returning from suspension, swiftly added another goal within three minutes, concluding a sharp counterattack and putting City in the lead.

Despite some tense moments in the final half-hour, including a time-wasting substitution by Guardiola, City held on to secure the much-needed victory and rediscover the taste of success.
