The Luton Town vs Chelsea live stream today is the first game of the latest round of bumper Premier League Christmas period, as the improving Hatters seek a third top-flight win in a row, this time against Mauricio Pochettino's inconsistent Blues — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN today.

The teams are in and Luton make one change as Issa Kabore comes in for Ryan Giles. That means Ross Barkley starts against his former club in midfield alongside Albert Sambi Lokonga, with Elijah Adebayo continuing up front and Andros Townsend on the right wing with Alfie Doughty on the opposite flank. Carlton Morris is on the bench.

For Chelsea, Mauricio Pocettino rings changes as Noni Madueke gets a start after coming off the bench to score the winner against Crystal Palace on Thursday night. Armando Broja, Cole Palmer and Thiago Silva also come into the side, with Ian Maatsen, Benoit Badiashile, Mikhaylo Mudryk and Christopher Nkunku all dropping to the bench where they're joined by Raheem Sterling. Conor Gallagher captains the side.

Luton may still occupy a relegation position but there are green shoots recovery. The Hatters have won their last two Premier League outings, beating Newcastle 1-0 and relegation rivals Sheffield United 3-2, and even gave the defending champions a run for their money in the game before that.

Rob Edwards' side are also now playing for club captain Tom Lockyer who continues to convalesce after suffering a cardiac arrest during a game at Bournemouth that was abandoned because of his health scare. Carlton Morris came off the bench at Bramall Lane to create two goals and may be in line to start. 

Chelsea may have made it to the Carabao Cup semi-finals but the Blues' league form has left a lot to be desire. Mauricio Pochettino's side have yet to win more than two Premier League games in a row this season and sit 10th in the table. Their goalscoring hopes lie at the feet of Nicolas Jackson and Christopher Nkunku, the latter of whom made his first start in their victory over Crystal Palace on Wednesday, alongside fellow new boy Romeo Lavia who looked good off the bench.
