Chelsea take on newly promoted Luton Town tonight, under the Friday Night Lights. Clear eyes, full hearts, etc, etc, etc.
One would expect the Blues to take these three points easily, but this is also well set up for a shock result for the visitors. One of those glitches in the match engine that can happen.
So let’s not let that happen! Looks like we’re sticking with the back-three. Bench is a bit thin, with two goalkeepers named. Ross Barkley starts for the visitors.
Here we go!
