Chelsea will face Luton Town in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon at Kenilworth Road in their final game of 2023.

Mauricio Pochettino will be keen to end the year on a positive note after a mixed set of results over the festive period, which saw Chelsea bounce back from their Christmas Eve defeat to Wolves by beating Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, courtesy of a Noni Madueke penalty in the 89th minute.

Newly-promoted Luton are looking to make it three wins in a row in the league after back-to-back wins over Newcastle United and Sheffield United, boosting their hopes of survival.

Chelsea will welcome back Cole Palmer and Raheem Sterling from suspension, but Enzo Fernandez will continue to be sidelined due to a hernia problem. Romeo Lavia picked up a thigh problem in midweek and is a major doubt, while Moises Caicedo is in line to face the Hatters.

Pochettino is fully aware of the challenge at Chelsea, however the Blues head coach is confident, with injured stars beginning to return, that it will eventually click and they will climb up back to the top end of the table.

“It’s a massive challenge, we are so happy to face this challenge, I hope we can succeed, and for sure we are going to succeed, because I think we have the talent, it’s only a matter of time,” Pochettino told TNT Sports pre-match.

Here are all of the details ahead of Luton Town versus Chelsea in the Premier League.
