Chelsea are targeting their first victory under the Mauricio Pochettino era as they play host Championship play-off winners Luton Town.

The Blues kick started the season with an impressive 1-1 draw against Liverpool before falling to a demoralising 3-1 away defeat against London rivals West Ham United.

Luton are aiming to pick up their first points of the Premier League era. The Hatters are competing in the top-flight for the first time since 1992 and they were relegated just months before the inaugural Premier League season.

The Bedfordshire outfit have enjoyed a fairytale rise through the divisions over the last decade but they endured a poor start to life in the top-flight by losing 4-1 away at Brighton.

The upcoming game pits together the most expensive team in the league and the cheapest team in the division.

But when is Chelsea’s game against Luton Town and how can fans follow all of the action?
