LUT vs CHE: Chelsea Team News, Possible Lineup And Kickoff Time For The PL Showdown

 Chelsea will be bidding to build on their impressive outing in the English Premier League when they square off against Luton Town on Saturday in their next game of the season.

The Blues will be going into the clash after their hard-fought 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace in their previous game, and they will be looking for another success over Luton in a bid to maintain their top-four finish dreams.

Team News:

In a much-anticipated comeback, Raheem Sterling and Cole Palmer are set to bolster Chelsea's lineup after serving one-game suspensions against Crystal Palace. The duo's return adds firepower to the squad for Saturday's showdown against Luton.

Christopher Nkunku marked a significant milestone by making his first Premier League start, while Romeo Lavia experienced his Blues baptism coming off the bench. However, post-match concerns arise as Pochettino reveals worries about knocks sustained by Lavia and Mykhaylo Mudryk.

The midfield situation for the visitors remains uncertain, with the possibility of further decimation if Enzo Fernandez's hernia doesn't settle down in time for the Luton clash. Pochettino faces a challenging task managing his squad amidst these injury concerns.

Chelsea's injury list continues to grow, with Trevoh Chalobah (thigh), Carney Chukwuemeka (knee), Ben Chilwell (hamstring), Wesley Fofana (knee), Reece James (thigh), Marc Cucurella (ankle), and Robert Sanchez (knee) confirmed as definite absentees for the upcoming game.

In light of the hectic schedule and a less-than-ideal performance on Wednesday, Pochettino might consider sacrificing Nicolas Jackson for strategic reasons.

Chelsea's possible starting lineup vs Luton:

Petrovic; Gusto, Disasi, Silva, Colwill; Caicedo, Gallagher; Madueke, Palmer, Sterling; Nkunku.

Kickoff Time:

The English Premier League clash between Luton and Chelsea will begin at exactly 1:30 PM (Nigerian Time) on Saturday.
