LUT vs CHE: 4-3-3 strongest lineup that Chelsea could use to defeats Luton Town

The Emirates FA Cup resumes in midweek, with Luton Town and Chelsea meeting on Wednesday at the Kenilworth Road Stadium.

The Blues are still nursing their wounds after the disappointment of the Carabao Cup final, while the hosts will be looking for their fourth successive victory in all competitions.

Luton Town climbed into the EFL Championship playoff spots with a 1-0 victory against Derby County last weekend.

They’ve won their past three games and just lost once in their previous seven.

They have now shifted their focus to the FA Cup, where they have started well, winning both games and scoring seven goals while allowing nine.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup after beating Chesterfield and Plymouth Argyle.

But the Blues are coming off a crushing loss to Liverpool in the EFL Cup final.

Chelsea had a six-game winning run before it, scoring 10 goals and maintaining four clean sheets.

Chelsea has won 18 of the past 44 matches between the two teams. Luton Town have won 14 games and drawn 12 in that period.

Following their penalty shoot-out defeat to Liverpool at Wembley on Sunday, Thomas Tuchel will be aiming to encourage his team ahead of the FA Cup.

With a 16-point advantage over Premier League leaders Manchester City, it’s the only domestic tournament they have left to win.
They face Luton Town, who are fighting for a playoff berth in the English second division and have only lost three league games at home.

For his midfield dilemma, Jones has confirmed that Luke Berry and Jordan Clark have returned to training after hamstring and leg injuries, respectively.

Due to Sonny Bradley’s hernia, and Henri Lansbury’s injury, Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu’s comeback can’t come fast enough for the fifth round.

The Hatters’ new acquisition Robert Snodgrass might make his debut after scoring twice in two Championship games.

Because of an Achilles injury, Hakim Ziyech will not play against Chelsea, while Andreas Christensen will also miss out owing to a similar ailment.

Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James, and Mateo Kovacic were all fit to play in the final, despite James leaving with a “big overload” on his shoulders from the previous match.

In addition to Malang Sarr, Timo Werner, and maybe Romelu Lukaku, Tuchel will re-evaluate his starting XI after playing over 120 minutes on Sunday.
