Preview (Brighton vs Luton)

Their highest-ever top-flight result was sixth place in the Premier League last season. Brighton became the first team in their history to qualify for the Europa League. Graham Potter left at the beginning of last season. Roberto De Zerbi has since taken over and continued Brighton’s impressive rise in the top division. Roberto De Zerbi has implemented an appealing brand of football. With a young and exciting squad they have the potential to reach new heights this season.

De Zerbi and company will be confident of getting off to a strong start in the new Premier League season. They get ready for favorable matches against Luton, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and West Ham United. Luton Town sought to leave the National League at the fourth attempt ten years ago. They ultimately succeeded in doing so by winning the league. The Hatters secured promotion from the Championship via the playoffs last season. They are now preparing for life on the English top flight for the first time since 1992.

Luton won the playoff final against Coventry City at Wembley in an exciting penalty shootout. They will now become the 51st different club to play in the Premier League. After an impressive third-place finish in the second tier under head coach Rob Edwards. He took over for Nathan Jones last November. Up to nine new players have joined Luton so far this summer. The Hatters supporters will have to wait until after Kenilworth Road undergoes a significant renovation to meet Premier League standards. A home match against Burnley that was originally scheduled for August 19 has already been postponed to give the club more time.

Team News

Key midfielder Moises Caicedo, who has reportedly missed training this week and stated a desire to quit the club amid intense interest from Chelsea and Liverpool, won’t be available for Brighton. While Pascal Gross, Joel Veltman, and Tariq Lamptey are all expected to compete for a spot at right-back, it is unclear if Jason Steele or summer signing Verbruggen will start in goal. Following his summer transfer from Borussia Dortmund, Dahoud participated in all four of Brighton’s preseason games, starting three of them. He might make his Premier League debut alongside Milner or Billy Gilmour.

While Joao Pedro, who scored for Watford against Luton in the Championship last season, may play in a number 10 role behind either Danny Welbeck or Evan Ferguson—the latter of whom did not start a single game in the preseason—Solly March and Kaoru Mitoma both excelled for the Seagulls last season and are expected to start on the flanks this weekend. According to Edwards, Jordan Clark and Daniel Potts, who both suffered ankle injuries in the friendly doubleheader against Bochum last weekend, are both out for “the next few weeks” for Luton. Mpanzu will make history by becoming the first player to represent the same club in all five of English football’s major divisions.

In an effort to earn a victory in their Premier League debut, Luton will try to frustrate Brighton and make things difficult for them. The Seagulls, on the other hand, have the attacking tools at their disposal to trouble the Hatters, and they ought to have too much for Edwards’ team on Saturday.
