If Luton Town were under any illusions how tough life in the Premier League was going to be, a 4-1 defeat at Brighton on the opening day of the season was as big a wake-up call as you can imagine.

Things don’t get any easier tonight with a trip to London against a Chelsea side desperate for a home win.

You have to go back to March for the Blues’ last victory at Stamford Bridge, nine games ago, in a 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund. Last season was write-off for Chelsea but this campaign hasn’t got off to a very auspicious start.

The 1-1 draw with Liverpool offered some hope, some light at the end of the tunnel but the oncoming train arrived in the shape of a 3-1 defeat at West Ham.

Mauricio Pochettino wasn’t too despondent with his team’s performance but he’s going to have to get results soon to justify the £900m spent on the squad since Todd Boehly bought the club.

Contrast that level of cash with the pocket-money budget at Luton and we might just have the biggest gulf in squad value / spend the Premier League has ever seen.

The bookies have Chelsea as 3/10 favourites to pick up the three points with the Hatters at 10/1.

This a game where Chelsea should see plenty of the ball. They dominated possession in defeat at the London Stadium (76%) and had the lion’s share against Liverpool (65%), winning nine and four corners respectively. They’re even money to take eight or more corners this evening which might be a better angle than backing them to win at short odds.

Raheem Sterling earned pass marks against West Ham and won a penalty that was subsequently missed by Enzo Fernandez. The England striker is 7/5 to find the net tonight.

    no joy finding this bet

    fitzpatrick 6/4 in the 2 ball to beat mclroy

    hovland to beat scheffler 5/4

    trying to decide on one more

    maybe cory connors to bt glover glover finished 2+ and maybe the last few week are catching up with him

    but back to rorys injury the further into the tourney the worse you would expect it to get, so may be worth betting against him the next couple of days

    but what do i know

    Fancy Chelsea to cut lose tonight, against a Luton team who must have realised in the first 45 minutes of there opening game how tough it’s going to be this season.

    I thought Chelsea actually played quite well last week despite the 3-1 loss to West Ham, and even in spells against Liverpool they were the better team.

    Luton were put to the sword in there match versus Brighton, and were probably lucky to have only conceded just the 4 goals.

    With from what I have seen so far I’m happy to play over 2 Chelsea goals and Over 2 Chelsea corners at 23/20 with Bet365.

      I think any team in the Prem who visit Brighton will have a tough game no matter how well established they are. The problem for Chelsea is who’s going to score the goals they have 35 players on the books and no world class striker, players on 8 year contracts to get round financial fairplay rules, players only there for the money. The Americans are running the club into the ground because they don’t know how to run a football club.

    Due to rain loads of the matches at the US open have yet to be completed from yesterday. Raining again today so not sure how many will be played. Will post the full results when all finished.

    Some plays for today if any manage to go ahead.

    J Shang x M Bjorklund @ 1.85 Bet365
    M Bjorklund -4.5 Games v A Raina @ 1.86 Unibet
    J Duckworth -2.5 Games v T Skatov @ 1.83 Unibet
    K Anderson and Over 19.5 Games @ 3.10 William Hill
    Bronzetti v Tomova Over 8.5 Breaks of Serve @ 1.90 Bet365

    Will have some footy plays tonight as well which I will post shortly.

    Best of luck all.

    My Football plays tonight

    RB Leipzig v Stuttgart
    Both of these teams average a high amount of shots per game and the recent head to heads almost 30. The prices on Simakan passes are based on them thinking he will play at right back. He has started at CB this season and had 88 passes in his last match. Orban is priced at 1.40 for the same number of passes so looks a great price.
    Over 23.5 match shots @ 1.80 Bet365
    M Simakan 75+ Passes @ 1.83 Coral

    Hull City v Bristol City
    Naismith will be playing CB today in place of the suspended Dickie. When he came on last match he committed 2 fouls in just 30 minutes. Will likely be under pressure today from some good attacking players at Hull so like his chances to commit a foul again today. Scott Twine loves a shot. Last season he hit 5/6 on a number of occasions. I think Hull will create a few chances tonight and hopefully Twine will be involved.
    Kai Naismith 1+ Foul @ 2.20 Paddy Power
    Scott Twine over 2.5 shots @ 2.25 Bet365

    • MJT 8 months ago

      And 2 plays for me in the Chelsea v Luton game

      Not many attacking options at Chelsea at the moment and with Caicedo playing today it will give more freedom to both Gallagher and Fernandez to get forward. I expect Chelsea to dominate and have a decent number of shots tonight so would be surprised if these two players are not having a few attempts.

      C Gallagher 2+ Shots @ 1.80 Boylesports
      E Fernandez 2+ Shots @ 1.90 Bet365

      Good luck all

  14. maccathered 8 months ago

    Chelsea v Luton Town
    Chelsea to win to nil at 10/11 b365
    Thiago Silva to score anytime at 9/1
    Looking at Chelsea’s line up nothing should be getting through them so the win to nil appeals. Thiago Silva should be causing the Luton defence problems from set pieces.
