Last season's performance

Having competed in the third tier of English football as recently as 2019, Luton were able to pull off a footballing fairytale last term as they achieved promotion to the Premier League for the first time in the club's history following a dramatic penalty shootout victory in the play-off final against Coventry at Wembley,

Beginning the campaign under the auspices of Nathan Jones, Luton were forced to find a new manager mid-season after the Welshman made the move to Southampton in November.

In stepped Rob Edwards, with the former Forest Green and Watford boss breathing new life into the Hatters who enjoyed an outstanding second half of the season to finish third in the Championship table to book a place in the play-offs.

Ending the Championship campaign on a stunning 14-match unbeaten run, the fearless Luton were able to carry this momentum into the play-offs where they edged past Sunderland in the semi-finals before overcoming fellow overachievers Coventry in the Wembley showpiece.

What to expect from Luton Town in the Premier League

This season's prospects

With a squad that was one of the most cheaply assembled in the Championship last term, defying the odds to achieve promotion, it goes without saying that Rob Edwards has his work cut out to keep Luton in the Premier League.

This Luton side are used to surpassing expectations, however, and their physical and dynamic style of play has ensured that they have been competitive so far this season.

The Hatters have stayed in games for long periods and will be hopeful that they can pick enough points to stay up.
