Chelsea vs Luton Town predictions
The Blues will be eager to set the ball rolling having disappointed in their last two games. Their spending spree to set-up a good side should be enough investment to start generating needed results. Here is how we think this affair will play out.
Prediction 1: Chelsea to Emerge Victorious
The match with Luton Town presents an opportunity for Chelsea to pick up their first win of the season. With all due respect to the visitors, we don't think they pose any threat to Pochettino's side who are the overwhelming favourites to win this encounter. Previous matches between them have gone in Chelsea's way, and we expect them to win this time again.
Prediction 2: Both Teams to Score
It's worth taking into account that the last two meetings between these teams have witnessed goals on both ends. Also, both teams have scored this season in the league, and are coming into this clash from both sides scoring in each of their last three games. Considering all these facts, we're fairly confident in both teams hitting the back of the net.
Prediction 3: Over 2.5 Total Goals
Chelsea and Luton Town will square off on Friday following high-scoring results in their last game respectively. Also, encounters between them in the past have yielded lots of goals; five and four in their last two meetings. By this, we suspect this match to follow the same pattern.
Chelsea vs Luton Town head to head
These two teams have met previously on two occasions in the last couple of years. Chelsea won in both meetings, the Blues will be hoping to keep their winning streak intact as they play host to the Hatters this weekend.

Chelsea recent form
Mauricio Pochettino's side have started the season on a sour note; they've been winless in their first two matches, the 1-1 stalemate in their opening game of the season with Liverpool was followed by a 3-1 crushing defeat to West Ham last week. In contrast, they had a good pre-season where they went undefeated.
Luton Town recent form
The newly promoted side have played one game in the league so far, and got treated to a 4-1 thrashing away at Brighton in the opening week, their second loss in the last six games. It'll be interesting how they fare against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
