Luton Town vs Chelsea live match

Luton Town have the chance to make it three wins in a row in the Premier League when Chelsea visit Kenilworth Road on Saturday.

Rob Edwards’ men beat Sheffield United 3-2 in a relegation-zone thriller to claim three crucial points on Boxing Day.

After Alfie Doughty fired the Hatters into the lead in the 17th minute, Sheffield United looked set to seal a thrilling comeback win thanks to second-half goals from Olie McBurnie and Anel Ahmedhodzic.

But the Blades made a meal of it in the last 13 minutes of normal time by conceding two own goals to let their opponents earn a crucial victory at Bramall Lane.

With their wins over Newcastle United and Sheffield over the last week, Luton remain at 18th in the table but are now just one point behind Everton, with a game in hand over the Toffees.

Meanwhile, Chelsea left it late to clinch all three points against Crystal Palace in yet another unconvincing display at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. Mykhailo Mudryk’s opener in the 13th minute was canceled out by Michael Olise’s striker in first-half stoppage time.

Noni Madueke then converted from the spot as late as the 89th minute to help Mauricio Pochettino keep his naysayers at bay for now. The win helped the Blues climb to 10th in the Premier League table but it’s worth noting that they are only above Wolverhampton Wanderers and Bournemouth on goal difference.
