Coming barely 72 hours after the physically, mentally, emotionally draining League Cup final against Liverpool, this game is setting up quite nicely for a quintessential Magic of the Cup trap game.
On paper, Chelsea are the overwhelming favorites, and we beat them just last year, 3-1, in this same competition. It was Frank Lampard’s last game in charge in fact.
In reality, Luton Town are having one of their best seasons in the last three decades, since their relegation from the old First Division in 1992, and they’ve lost just two games in all competitions since the start of December, both away. They are currently sixth in the Championship, the final promotion playoff spot, ahead of both Peterborough United and Stoke City, who gave Manchester City and Crystal Palace, respectively, strong games yesterday, as well as Middlesborough, who eliminated Spurs in extra-time.
