What channel is Chelsea vs Luton Town on? TV, live stream and kick-off time for FA Cup tie

Chelsea: Lampard confident he can cope with pressure

Chelsea will be taking on Championship side Luton Town at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. The FA Cup tie will be the first time they’ve played against each other since 1994.

Chelsea have only been eliminated from the FA Cup on two previous occasions to lower league opposition, out of their past 53 matches.

The Blues were beaten by Barnsley in 2008, and then Bradford City in 2015.

But Frank Lampard’s side go into the game against Luton as red hot favourites, despite their poor run of form in the Premier League.

The Hatters are handling themselves in the Championship, and won’t be a walkover for Chelsea, however.

Luton are currently 13th in the Championship table, firmly in mid-table.

They haven’t scored many goals in the league – just 21 goals in 25 games – but they also don’t concede too many.

Luton have reached the FA Cup Fifth Round on previous occasion in the past 25 years.

They’ll also be coming up against Olivier Giroud, who has scored 25 goals in 32 career FA Cup matches.
