Chelsea will play host to Luton Town on Sunday evening for the FA Cup 4th Round tie. The Championship side are placed thirteenth in the points table and Chelsea are expected to have a walk in the park.

Frank Lampard is expected to leave no straw unturned for this fixture nevertheless after his side were humbled by Leicester City earlier this week. The English manager will have nearly the entire team at his disposal except for Charly Musonda.

Here’s how Chelsea are expected to take to the field on Sunday evening at Stamford Bridge –

Chelsea Predicted Line-Up Against Luton Town

Defence

Kepa Arrizabalaga is expected to take charge in goal as he did against Morecambe in the previous round. The Spaniard could use this cup fixtures to make his way back into the Chelsea line-up ahead of Mendy. César Azpilicueta will be occupying the right-back slot and will also lead the side. A centre back pairing of Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rüdiger will be seen minding the defence for the side. The duo was comfortable last time around and seemed to gel along well together. Emerson will be starting out on the left-hand side to complete the four-man defence.

Midfield

Havertz is expected to start in midfield along with Mason Mount. Mateo Kovacic will join the duo in midfield to strike the right balance between youth and experienced. Havertz was impressive in the previous round of FA Cup as he got onto the scoresheet and even assisted another goal for Frank Lampard’s side on the night. Billy Gilmour and Jorginho are expected to make up the number for the Blues on the bench.

Attack

Hakim Ziyech is expected to start on the right-hand side of attack after coming off the bench in Chelsea’s defeat at the King Power Stadium. Tammy Abraham will be occupying the number nine position despite a somewhat poor display a couple of nights ago. Timo Wener will be occupying the last available slot in the line-up and start at the left-wing position. The German is yet to prove his mettle at Chelsea since his highly discussed summer move to Stamford Bridge and thus Werner should be making the most of the opportunities coming his way.
