12 hours ago — Luton Town face a huge Premier League test on August 25 as they take on rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge — here's the latest on TV and ...




All you need to know: Chelsea vs Luton TownThe weekend action begins early at Stamford Bridge as one of the Premier League’s ever-presents take on the division’s newest entrant. Club historian Rick Glanvill and club statistician Paul Dutton prepare for a Friday night under the lights in SW6… Chelsea contested Sky Sports’ inaugural Friday Night Football on 11 December 1992 at Ayresome Park, and will now host its most recent edition. It is the first ever Premier League meeting between the Blues and Luton Town, though the two recently met in successive FA Cup campaigns in 2021 (a 3-1 win at the Bridge) and 2022 (3-2 at Kenilworth Road).

That winnable treble hands the crowd a chance to play a huge part in kickstarting the season after last weekend’s setback at West Ham. The Blues have not scooped all three points on home soil since a 1-0 win against Leeds in March and are in a run of three straight draws, including the season-opener against Liverpool. That same opening weekend, Luton lost 4-1 at Brighton. As they also failed to win on the road throughout their final Division One season in 1991/92, the Bedfordshire side are currently winless in 27 away matches at this level. Team newsMauricio Pochettino is happy with much of what he’s witnessed from his team so far and the evidence is there for all to see.


All went on to have trophy-laden Chelsea careers. Scouting the opposition – Luton TownLuton were promoted to the Premier League thanks to victory over Coventry in the play-off final. After their scheduled match at Kenilworth Road last weekend was postponed because of stadium issues, they will become the second promoted club to play both their first two Premier League games away from home. (The only others were Blackpool, relegated in 2010/11).


The Hatters were beaten 4-1 on the opening weekend at Brighton, with errors leading to two late goals for the hosts as tiredness took its toll. A defence-minded Town conceded 12 shots on target against the Seagulls, who also hit the goalframe three times. Rob Edwards set up with a back three plus wing-backs, who were put under extended pressure from the hosts’ wide players. Brighton dominated possession and won the midfield battle, regularly winning the ball from the visitors, though the Hatters managed to counter attack with some success. The head coach, who said he would like to take advantage of a Chelsea side ‘not at their best’, is likely to be without Reece Burke, Jordan Clark, Gabe Osho and Dan Potts on Friday.


Despite the eventual outcome there was plenty to savour from a dominant first-half performance in east London, and who knows how the game might have unfolded had Enzo’s penalty found its target. (That was our first miss from the spot since Jorginho at home to the same opponents in April 2022. )As against Liverpool, the team showed organisation, invention, and incisiveness, creating 11 shots inside the Hammers’ box. Raheem Sterling arguably had his best day for Chelsea with six successful take-ons.


In 2016/17 we played two fixtures on this day: a 2-1 home defeat by Liverpool and, of course, West Bromwich away on 12 May, where Michy Batshuayi clinched the victory that secured our sixth league title success. In times past, a match-packed Easter weekend could make or break a club’s campaign and Good Friday loomed large in the football calendar. None more so than the promotion showdown with Manchester United during our first season on 13 April 1906, where a record crowd for the Metropolis – 67, 000 – witnessed a 1-1 draw that dented the Pensioners’ chances. Another promotion tussle with Mancunians, this time City at Maine Road on Friday 4 May 1984, was televised live.


Chelsea vs Luton LIVE: Premier League teams news, line 34 minutes ago — Good evening and welcome to The Independent's coverage of tonight's Premier League action as Chelsea take on Luton Town at Stamford Bridge.


The Hatters might have anticipated their maiden Premier League visit to Stamford Bridge would take place three decades earlier, but they were relegated from the old Division One in May 1992. Pointedly, Middlesbrough, our Friday night hosts back in 1992, were among the clubs who had replaced them. Stalemates, setbacks and a stunning success - our record on FridaysHow to watch Chelsea vs LutonThe latest injury newsThis is the first of a series of three matches back-to-back at the Bridge, with Wimbledon the Carabao Cup visitors on Wednesday, and Nottingham Forest in the league next Saturday.


With a little over a week before the transfer cut-off, though, one-time Blue Ross Barkley, now 29, has been signed on a free transfer after his release by Nice, and 35-year-old goalkeeper Tim Krul has joined from Norwich. Chelsea vs Luton – the historyLuton will be the 50th different club Chelsea have faced over the course of the Premier League. We have beaten each of the previous 49 except Oldham Athletic. The Blues are unbeaten at the Bridge in six meetings with Town, stretching back to a Mike Newell brace in a 3-1 September 1986 defeat. The Londoners’ biggest league victory at home to the Hatters was 4-1 in 1956, with homegrown teenager Tony Nicholas contributing a brace. That scoreline was matched the last time this league fixture was played, almost exactly 32 years ago on 31 August 1991.


Yet another player lost to the operating table was not on anyone’s wish list, but the consolation of Carney Chukwuemeka’s knee damage was that the attacking midfielder’s majestic goal, his first in the famous royal blue, had just shown the potential he can regain when fit again. Meanwhile, should Moises Caicedo need inspiration after conceding a penalty in his bow for the Blues he need look no further than difficult league debuts for Marcel Desailly at Coventry in 1998, Wayne Bridge against Liverpool in 2003, or Thiago Silva, whose error at the Hawthorns in 2020 also led to an early setback.


The media dubbed that sensational strike ‘Sparrow’s arrow’ and the result – another Easter present – restored faith in promotion for manager Eddie McCreadie’s young side. Correctly so, as it turned out a few weeks later. But when Chelsea and the former full-back failed to agree contract terms in summer 1977, the departed Scot came close to replacing Harry Haslam at Luton. TGI FridayOn 3 February this year the Blues finished the working week at the Bridge with a 0-0 draw against Fulham, making it three wins, four draws and two defeats from all our Friday Premier League matches.


Graeme Le Saux, Andy Townsend, Kerry Dixon and Dennis Wise scored Chelsea’s goals. Although there were FA Cup clashes in 1927 and 1936, this was first played as a league match on Easter Monday 1956, and neither side troubled the scoreboard. Chelsea were defending champions of Division One whereas Luton, as now, were top-tier novices. Three days earlier, on Good Friday, the pair had drawn 2-2 at Kenilworth Road. The first of the Hatters’ four wins in 19 league visits would come in November 1957, but 20 years later an early goal for Steve Finnieston and a 25-yard drive from 18-year-old left-back John Sparrow earned an important Division Two victory for the Blues.
