Luton Town Full Fixtures and Hottest Matches In Premier League 2023/2024
Since its inception in 1992, the Premier League has featured 51 teams. That figure was 50 prior to May 28, 2023, when Luton Town defeated Coventry City.
Rob Edwards’ Hatters fought their way into English football’s top flight for the first time in over three decades, employing an effective, efficient style of play on their way to glorious promotion.
After a dramatic final weekend of English football, here are the promotions and relegations.
However, turbulence has defined Luton Town’s existence. Here’s everything you need to know about ‘team 51’ in the Premier League, including their complete schedule and upcoming fixtures.
Luton Town begin the season with a tough trip to Brighton. The Seagulls excel at both self-pressing and playing through an opponent’s press. This will be a tough test for Rob Edwards’ team as they look to get off to a good start.
In their first seven games, the playoff winners will also face Burnley, Everton, and West Ham. Burnley are also newly promoted, so they will want to beat the Clarets at home in their first game of the season.
For the majority of last season, Everton and West Ham were battling for relegation. They are both massive clubs, but Luton will need points in games like these.
Luton avoid any of the teams that finished in the top ten.

Luton Town, founded in 1885, is all too familiar with the ups and downs of football. However, the tide has shifted in recent years.
Former manager Nathan Jones, whose tenure at Southampton was equal parts chaotic and disastrous earlier this year, nearly led the club to promotion in 2021-22.
The fans would have to wait another year. Their dream came true in May of this year, thanks to manager Rob Edwards.
From a second-place finish in the First Division in 1955-56 to League Cup success in 1998, administration in the early 2000s, and a stint in non-league football to begin the 2010s, the historic club has seen it all. Since then, it’s been a steep ascent.
Until late September, Watford’s manager was former Welsh international Rob Edwards. Following the departure of predecessor Nathan Jones, who went on to have a disastrous Southampton tenure, Edwards was appointed as Luton manager in November 2022, with the club sitting in 10th place.
He transformed the team’s fortunes, winning 14 of 25 games and guiding the Hatters to Premier League glory.
Luton Town had not yet entered the transfer market at the time of writing. Three main characters stand out as significant in their fortunes among their current crop of promotion winners.
Throughout Luton’s promotion campaign, club captain Tom Lockyer was a rock at the back. Last season, the 28-year-old Welsh center back appeared in 39 games, scoring three goals and helping the team keep 16 clean sheets. Luton only managed four clean sheets without Lockyer.
Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu, a midfielder, has been with the club for nearly a decade, including early stints in non-league. Mpanzu’s effortless, lung-busting box-to-box contributions to Luton Town are invaluable despite starting 24 games.
With 20 goals, striker Carlton Morris, who joined Luton Town from Barnsley last summer, is without a doubt the club’s most important player. It’s difficult to imagine The Hatters gaining promotion without him, especially given his team-leading 7 assists. Morris transferring his Championship form into the top flight is critical if Luton are to retain their Premier League status at the end of the 2023-24 season.
The Premier League appears to be very strong next season, and Luton may struggle to stay afloat. We don’t expect them to be whipping boys by any means, but the teams near the bottom last season are expected to improve. Everton and Nottingham Forest were fortunate to survive last season and will invest more than newly promoted Luton.
Luton will be a difficult place to visit. The narrow pitch suits their style of play, and the stadium should intimidate Premier League stars. However, we believe Rob Edwards’ team will fall short over the course of a long season.
Who will Everton’s rivals in Premier League 2023-2024? Which matches are the hottest and the most expected?
Crystal Palace will kick off their 2023/24 season on August 12 when they travel to Bramall Line to face newly promoted Sheffield United. Read on …
