More new signings have walked through the door at Stamford Bridge and have had time to settle into the squad since then, though, with Mauricio Pochettino assembling a side more in his image. On the face of it, Luton are seemingly the perfect side to face as well, but that doesn’t mean the result is a foregone conclusion.
Indeed, despite losing 4-1 at Brighton on opening day, Luton have had two full weeks to prepare for their game against Chelsea. Kenilworth Road still isn’t ready to host Premier League matches yet, meaning the Hatters’ first scheduled home fixture last week against Burnley had to be postponed.
Rob Edwards will undoubtedly have galvanised his squad in the time since, working on how best to exploit Chelsea while also dealing with their attacking threat. Visiting one of the league’s big boys is what their promotion is all about, too.
Kick-off is at 8pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.
Chelsea have Christopher Nkunku and Wesley Fofana both out with a severe knee injuries, while Armando Broja and Mykhalo Mudryk are sidelined until September. However, Benoit Badiashile and Trevoh Chalobah are at the end of their rehabilitation programmes but are deemed not quite ready to feature.
Reece James is also out injured, while Carney Chukwuemeka is expected to be out for up to six weeks. New signing Romeo Lavia also won’t be available until after the September international break.
Luton are missing four players for their game against Chelsea, with Reece Burke, Gabriel Osho, Dan Potts and Jordan Clarke all injured. The quartet should return in the coming weeks, though, as they re-join training and matchday squads.
Robert Jones will be the referee for Chelsea vs Luton. His assistants will be Stuart Burt and Wade Smith, with Peter Bankes the fourth official. Paul Tierney is the VAR, with Gary Beswick the assistant VAR.
Chelsea vs Luton will be played at Stamford Bridge in London, which has a capacity of 40,341.
Kick-off and channel
Chelsea vs Luton kick-off is at 8pm BST on Friday 25 August in the UK. The game is on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event in the UK.
In the US, kick-off time is 3pm ET / 12pm PT. The match will be shown on NBC in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
