Chelsea secured their first Premier League victory of the season under the leadership of Mauricio Pochettino, triumphing 3-0 over Luton Town on Friday.

After drawing with Liverpool and facing defeat against West Ham, the pressure was on CFC during their encounter with Luton. The Hatters had enjoyed a more extended break due to the postponement of their match against Burnley. While there were tense moments, Chelsea ultimately achieved a positive outcome, building upon the smaller victories in their initial two games.

Initially, the match seemed to be heading into familiar territory with few goals for Mauricio Pochettino’s squad. However, they managed to score in the first half. Raheem Sterling showcased an exceptional individual effort, driving purposefully from the right wing into the box, eluding three defenders, and slotting a left-footed shot beyond goalkeeper Thomas Kaminsky.

In the second half, The Blues maintained pressure, leading to Sterling’s second goal. Malo Gusto delivered a low cross into the box, finding Sterling in a prime position to calmly guide the ball into the bottom corner.

Stamford Bridge underwent a sudden shift in atmosphere, resulting in a third goal within moments. Enzo Fernandez’s well-executed spinning pass reached Sterling, whose deflected cross found Nicolas Jackson. Jackson netted his first competitive goal for Chelsea.
