The Chelsea team will challenge the Luton team in a Matchday 3 in Stamford Bridge Stadium, London on Friday, August 25, 2023. For streaming coverage of Chelsea vs Luton, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Chelsea will host Luton Town at Stamford Bridge in the third week of the 2023/24 Premier League. This is an opportunity for the Blues to win their first win of the new season, after being held to a draw by West Ham and losing to Liverpool.
Chelsea desperately need points after two games without a win. They lost 2-0 to Liverpool in the opening match, then were held to a 2-2 draw by West Ham in the second, despite playing with a man advantage for more than 20 minutes. It was a result that did not match the class and ambition of the Blues, a team who have spent a fortune to strengthen their squad in the summer.
However, Chelsea have also had some problems integrating new signings into coach Pochettino’s style of play. They also had to bear heavy losses due to injuries to nine of their players, including important names like Chukwuemeka, Fofan, Bettinelli, Sarr, Badiashile, Chalobah, James, Broja, Nkunku. This is the thing that makes Chelsea unable to play at full strength.
Facing Luton Town, who had just been promoted and was much weaker in all aspects, Chelsea couldn’t make any more mistakes. They must win to restore the confidence of the supporters and improve their position in the standings. Currently, Chelsea are only in 15th place with one point from two matches, four points behind Arsenal and Tottenham.
On the other hand, Luton Town is one of the Premier League promotion teams this season. They got tickets to England’s highest competition thanks to the play-offs. However, Luton Town is not ready to compete with the big teams in England. They have proven it by losing 4-1 to Brighton in their first match. It was a game in which Luton Town didn’t have many chances to score and had to take a lot of pressure from Brighton.
Luton Town is also not having a good performance away from home. In the last five away matches, they have never won, only got two draws and three defeats. Facing the ambitious and experienced Chelsea, Luton Town is difficult to surprise. They will be under enormous pressure from Chelsea’s attack and will most likely lose again.
Based on the recent form above, Chelsea have the field advantage and player strength and are the favorites for their first three points of the season. The Blues also have a better head-to-head record winning five, drawing one and losing just two of their previous eight encounters. Therefore, Chelsea can fully achieve a big win over Luton Town.
