Luton vs Chelsea: In-Form Hatters Host Blues at Kenilworth Road – Premier League Team News and Kick-Off Time Preview

Chelsea Looking to End 2023 with a Bang

Chelsea will be hoping to end 2023 with a bang and put an awful year behind themselves as they travel to Luton Town this weekend. The Blues face the Hatters in the early kick-off on Saturday. This year has been a tough one for the Blues, having spent vast amounts in the transfer market with very little reward on the pitch. Mauricio Pochettino’s side labored to all three points against Crystal Palace in their midweek fixture. Mykhailo Mudryk netted his third goal in the Premier League this season to give his side the lead at Stamford Bridge. Michael Olise equalized for the visitors before Noni Madueke netted a later winner from the spot, securing the win for Chelsea.

Tough Year for the Blues

This year has been a tough one for the Blues, having spent vast amounts in the transfer market with very little reward on the pitch. The match against the Hatters will not be an easy one for the Blues despite the newly promoted sides’ lowly league position. Luton have won their last two games in the Premier League, lifting them to 18th place and only one point from climbing out of the bottom three.

Form of the Teams

Chelsea have won two of their last five Premier League games, while Luton Town have won their last two games with one against the Blades and the other versus Newcastle. These wins have relieved the pressure following five losses in a row.

Injury Update and Key Players

With Raheem Sterling and Cole Palmer back to the XI after suspension, and the bright performance of Christopher Nkunku, Chelsea looks more confident. Carlton Morris could get a start for Luton after coming on and having a hand in both of the Hatters’ late goals against Sheffield United earlier this week.

Manager’s Pre-Match Words and SunSport Prediction

Pochettino has urged Nkunku to get more involved ahead of the match against Luton. His prediction for the game is that Luton Town 1 Chelsea 2.
