Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Stamford Bridge will host Sunday’s football game between Chelsea and Luton Town, who face each other in the FA Cup last 32. The Blues rolled over Morecambe 4-0 in their FA Cup opener, and bookies see them as hot favourites to beat the Hatters as well. The likes of Hudson-Odoi, Kai Havertz, and Billy Gilmour are all pushing for a start. Luton Town, on the other hand, defeated Reading thanks to George Moncur’s goal in their FA Cup opener, but they face an uphill task in the Stamford Bridge showdown.
Since Chelsea are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting in London, back in 1991, Chelsea defeated Luton 4-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. Timo Werner is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Timo Werner):
Timo Werner is a German starlet, who began his senior career at Vfb Stuttgart. The German forward, who was born in Stuttgart on March 6, 1996, scored 13 goals in 95 appearances in the league for Die Schwaben and in 2016 he moved to fellow Bundesliga side Leipzig and he impressed with the Red Bulls in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign, scoring 21 goals in the process.
To make things even better for the talented attacker, he represented Germany at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and it has to be noted that he provided an assist for Lars Stindl in the title game. Despite the fact that coach Joachim Low rested star players at the tournament in Russia, the Germans eventually won the trophy.
Timo Werner played for the Germany U17 team as well and he won the silver medal with die Mannschaft at the 2012 UEFA European Championship. His main position is centre forward, but he is used as a winger as well. Timo Werner’s contract with Leipzig should expire on June 30, 2020.
