Frank Lampard leads the Premier League manager sack race going into this weekend’s FA Cup fourth round. Chelsea host Luton Town in a match they should win on paper. However, Lampard’s Chelsea are coming off of a humiliating 2-0 loss to Leicester City in the Premier League. In the wake of the loss, rumours are swirling that Lampard is about to be replaced by Southampton’s Ralph Hassenhuttl.
On Sunday, Championship club Luton Town arrive at Stamford Bridge. Lampard will hope his player’s step up on the day and earn progression to the fifth round of the competition. A win could save his job for a few more weeks. Luton Town are midtable in the Championship. They are 13 points above the relegation zone which means Nathan Jones’s team can focus on the task at hand of beating Chelsea on Sunday.
Chelsea have won just three times in their last 10 matches in all competitions. One of those wins came versus Morecambe in the FA Cup third round. The Blues defeated the Seasiders 4-0 in that fixture. Luton Town reached the fourth round thanks to an FA Cup third round 1-0 victory over Reading.
Can Chelsea win once more against lower league competition or will Luton Town kill off one of the Premier League clubs left in the FA Cup?
Chelsea vs Luton Town Betting Odds
Reports this week have centred around Lampard’s possible replacement. Originally, Hassenhuttl was linked to the job. Former RB Leipzig coach Ralph Ragnick was also linked with the Chelsea manager’s position. Most recently, RB Leipzig’s current coach Julian Nagelsmann was rumoured as possible replacement for Lampard. Last season’s Champions League semifinalists have stated their coach is going nowhere in midseason with the club fighting for trophies on three fronts.
Despite the possibility of Chelsea leaving Stamford Bridge, the Blues are heavy favourite to win the FA Cup fourth round match against Luton Town. The Blues are at odds of 1/6 to claim a win at full-time. Chelsea have posted a 7W-5D-2L record at Stamford Bridge this season. They have scored 33 goals and average 2.36 goals scored per match.
Luton Town are at odds of 18/1 to claim a win at full-time on Sunday at Stamford Bridge. The Hatters have posted a 5W-2D-7L record away from home this season. They have scored a mere seven goals away from home for an average of 0.47 per match. Jones’s team do not concede many away goals as just 14 have been allowed for an average of 1.0 per game. Chelsea should fancy their chances once more against lower league competition.
Chelsea vs Luton Town Team News
Lampard has just two players on his injury list going into the match on Sunday. Olivier Giroud has an ankle injury and is a doubt for the game. Midfielder N’Golo Kante is also a doubt for the fixture. He has a hamstring strain. It appears that Kante may be further along in his recovery than Giround and could make the squad to face Luton Town. Giroud is likely to be given time to heal before returning for Chelsea’s next Premier League match versus Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Chelsea are led in goals by the duo of Timo Werner and Giroud. The former is failing to hit the heights he did at RB Leipzig while Giroud is – as stated – injured. Tammy Abraham has scored eight goals in all competitions of his own. Lampard will be able to call on a strong squad to see off Luton Town this weekend.
Jones has just one player on his injury list at Luton Town. The manager is likely to be without Eunan O’Kane. The player is suffering from a knock that could keep him out until the end of the month. Luton Town forward James Collins leads the team in goals with six in 22 appearances this season in the Championship. Collins has three additional goals in cup competitions.
Chelsea vs Luton Town Prediction
Both teams to score: NO @ 8/11 - BET NOW
Chelsea won 4-0 versus Morecambe in the third round of the FA Cup. They should keep Luton Town out of goal just as they did the Morecambe in the previous round. Although Luton Town do not have anything to lose on Sunday, they average just 0.47 goals per match in all competitions away from home. The Blues conceded an average of 0.86 goals at Stamford Bridge in all competitions.
Timo Werner to score anytime @ 19/20 - BET NOW
The lack of goals scored by Timo Werner and Kai Havertz has much to do with Lampard and the way he plays them. Werner is not guaranteed a starting place in the team – he isn’t Mason Mount. Werner would give Chelsea a top-class striker to play against Luton Town. There is a huge gulf in class between these teams. Werner has nine goals in 27 matches in all competitions. He scored against Morecambe in Chelsea’s 4-0 win.
Over 2.5 goals scored @ 4/9 - BET NOW
Seventeen of Chelsea’s 28 matches in all competitions finished with over 2.5 goals scored. They have the potential to score goals against Luton Town just as they did versus Morecambe in the FA Cup third round. Nine of Luton Town’s 29 matches in all competitions ended with over 2.5 goals scored. They have not played any team of Chelsea’s capabilities this season and should struggle from kick off at Stamford Bridge.
A win versus Luton Town at the weekend would preserve Lampard’s job for a little while longer. With Lampard’s inability to get the likes of Werner, Havertz, and others to hit the heights they did last season, Chelsea could make a change. That change could even come with a victory versus the Hatters.
Chelsea should win on Sunday with ease. Their match versus Luton Town should go along similar lines to their match versus Morecambe in the FA Cup third round. Chelsea should rebound from their midweek 2-0 loss to Leicester City with a win in the FA Cup versus Luton Town.
