The home team took the lead against Chelsea inside two minutes with a beautiful headed goal from Reece Bruke. Later, in the first half, Saul Niguez equalised for the visitors on the 27th minute. It was his first goal for Chelsea since joining from Atletico Madrid.

Later, the hosts again took the lead against Chelsea with the help of Harry Cornick. Chelsea went into the second half one goal down with a 2-1 score. Chelsea had a couple of chances but were denied by Luton’s goalkeeper.

Later in the second half, a brilliant ball played from Loftus Cheek to Werner into the box found the net and Chelsea were again on level terms. The timing of Werner’s run was perfect, and the ball from Loftus Cheek was exceptional.

With 12 minutes to go, Chelsea were able to find the net with the help of Werner’s Cross and a tap in from Lukaku to put Chelsea in front. Chelsea held onto their lead against Luton Town till the end and beat the second-tier team to advance to the next round.
