Brighton & Hove Albion vs Luton Town match preview

These two clubs both achieved beyond their wildest dreams last season, so now the challenge for both is to be even better.

Brighton & Hove Albion finished sixth in the Premier League, their best-ever top-flight campaign, thereby qualifying for Europe for the first time in the club’s 122-year history.

The Seagulls are projected to be in pot 3 when the Europa League group stage draw comes around on 1 September, so are likely to face at least two of the competition’s big boys.

All in all, exciting times in Sussex, with the challenge new for Roberto De Zerbi’s team to balance both domestic and European commitments.

Luton Town meantime are back in the big-time, set to feature in the top-flight for the first time since 1991/92.

During this period, the Hatters have dropped all the way down into the fifth-tier, securing four promotions in nine seasons, the first club to go from non-league to Premier League since Wimbledon in the 1980s.

Back in May, Luton defeated Coventry City on penalties in the Championship play-off final at Wembley, completing their fairytale rise up the divisions.

This achievement was made all the sweeter by the fact Rob Edwards, the man who fierce rivals Watford had sacked earlier in the season, was the manager to deliver Premier League football for Luton.

Of course, the Hatters are everyone’s pre-season favourites for relegation, but they are well aware of the fact they’ll have to scrap for every single point they earn.

The last time Brighton and Luton met was in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy semi-finals in 2009, with the Hatters prevailing on penalties, before beating Scunthorpe United in the final a couple of months later.

Both clubs have certainly come along way since those days, and this is far from an easy introduction to life in the Premier League for Luton, with a home win at the Amex more than likely.

Brighton & Hove Albion team news

Ahead of a European campaign, Brighton have been busy in the transfer market, adding depth and quality to their squad.

In goal, will Jason Steele keep his place, or is new arrival Bart Verbruggen now the number one?

Elsewhere, centre-back Igor, midfielders James Milner and Mahmoud Dahoud as well as forward João Pedro are likely to make their debuts.

Winger Simon Adingra, who spent last season on loan at Tony Bloom’s other club Royale Union Saint-Gilloise, is tipped for big things this season.

Moisés Caicedo is on his way to either Liverpool or Chelsea, no one is quite sure just yet, but Roberto De Zerbi confirmed on Friday that the Ecuadorian had played his last game for Brighton.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Steele; Groß, Igor, Dunk, Estupiñán; Dahoud, Gilmour, Milner; March, João Pedro, Mitoma.

Luton Town team news

Luton certainly have not splashed the cash this summer, with Thomas Kaminski, Tahith Chong, Chiedozie Ogbene and Mads Andersen all arriving from EFL clubs.

On Wednesday, the Hatters confirmed that Ross Barkley had arrived on a free transfer from Nice, a rare member of this squad with Premier League expirence.

Should he feature here, Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu would make history, becoming the first player to feature in England’s top five divisions all for the same club.

Predicted XI (3-5-2): Kaminski; Osho, Lockyer, Bell; Ogbene, Nakamba, Ruddock Mpanzu, Barkley, Doughty; Adebayo, Morris.
