Chelsea vs Luton Premier League Result December 2023

Chelsea ended 2023 with an encouraging performance and a 3-2 away win against Luton Town in the Premier League. Cole Palmer punished a lapse of concentration from Issa Kaboré to open the scoring 12 minutes in, and Noni Madueke doubled Chelsea's lead before half-time.

Palmer then showed incredible composure to round off the scoring in the 70th minute and seemingly wrap up the victory. However, former Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley scored before Elijah Adebayo's goal gave the visitors hope with a late rally that ultimately came up short.

The Blues remain 10th despite earning the three points -- although they are now only one point behind ninth-placed Newcastle United ahead of the Magpies' match against Liverpool on New Year's Day.


The unique challenge playing at Kenilworth Road offers has been well documented, and Chelsea dealt with it well for large periods, matching the Hatters' physically and dealing with their aerial threat for large periods. In addition, all three of their goals were taken brilliantly and came at important times in the game.


Even though it was inconsequential in terms of the points, Chelsea completely collapsed defensively after conceding their first goal -- which came from a corner and should have been dealt with better. Chelsea fans probably didn't want to see quite as much of their former player and Luton goal-scorer Barkley as they did in general play either.
