After an exciting summer that saw Chelsea take their spending to more than $1 billion since the arrival of American owner Todd Boehly, it’s not been the ideal start to the season for the west London club. There were encouraging signs in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool as new centre-forward Nicolas Jackson looked sharp, while Raheem Sterling looked back to his very best and last year’s big-money signing Enzo Fernandez impressed in a more attacking role. 

However, the 3-1 loss to West Ham at the London Stadium provided a reality check for new manager Mauricio Pochettino, with Fernandez missing a penalty and Moisés Caicedo enduring a nightmare debut that saw the $146 million midfielder give away a penalty in a surprisingly sloppy performance. 

After a hugely disappointing campaign in 2022/23, Chelsea will want to respond in a positive manner on Friday night and have the perfect opportunity to get back on track against a Luton side back in the top flight for the first time in more than 30 years. The Hatters were on the wrong end of a 4-1 scoreline against Brighton in their only game so far this season and have an entire squad that costs less than $30 million. 

Manager Rob Edwards received high praise as he led his side back to the top flight and will hope his players can step up their performances on the big stage. The Hatters were renowned for being extremely compact last season and are always dangerous from set pieces. There will also be an opportunity for new signing Ross Barkley to impress against his former club after arriving at Luton on a free transfer from French club Nice. 

Line-ups

Chelsea XI: Sanchez; Disasi, Silva, Colwill, Chilwell, Gusto; Enzo, Gallagher, Caicedo; Sterling, Jackson

Luton XI: Kaminski; Burke, Lockyer, Bell, Kabore; Barkley, Nakamba, Chong, Giles; Morris, Adebayo
