Chelsea opened their Premier League campaign with a positive 1-1 draw against a strong Liverpool side. The Blues were the better of the two sides and the new look Chelsea showed glimpses of previous sides playing on the front foot and taking the game to their opponents.
However, injury to newly announced captain Reece James puts a big set back to the side as his presence in the side makes them tick and gives them a strong option on the right hand side, which complements Ben Chillwell on the left.
New signing Caicedo from Brighton, a record British transfer, had a game to forget on Sunday at West Ham and all the positive vibes after the first game are gone after Chelsea were well beaten. The Hammers overpowered Chelsea to win 3-1 and put a huge dent in Pochettino’s Chelsea.
Chelsea do now have the chance to bounce back quickly as they welcome newly promoted Luton Town to the Bridge. There is no better side than Luton for Chelsea to regain confidence and collect 3 points.
Luton Town opened their Premier League with a 4-1 defeat away at Brighton and given their home ground isn’t yet ready, they had a free week, so do come into this game fresh and ready to put pressure on Chelsea.
The Hatters will look to cause Chelsea problems and should Chelsea not show the positive energy they did at home to Liverpool, then Luton Town can enjoy some possession and with their positive way of attacking, can look to get on the scoresheet.
With 9 shots on goal and 3 on target against Brighton, Luton town aren’t here for the ride, they will look to attack and be positive with the ball as often as they can.
Unfortunately for them, Chelsea are likely to have too much talent on offer on the day and it could be the perfect game for Jackson, Sterling and even Mudryk to get on the scoresheet and gain some much needed confidence as they look to kick-start their season in a positive way.
Expect this one to be an open and entertaining game.
