Luton suffered a 4-1 defeat away to Brighton on their return to the Premier League. Despite losing some key players over the summer, manager Roberto De Zerbi’s changes were perfect.

Brighton Player Ratings:

Steels 7/10 – the goalkeeper was every bit as good, only making demands on the penalty he couldn’t save. 

Milner 7/10 – the veteran full-back was solid in defence although he missed some of the aerial ones.

Hecke 7/10 – made 6 clearances and a couple of interceptions, but was very shaky on the aerials

Dunk 6/10 – The captain was not solid in defence and committed a major foul, also missed two of the three he had.

Estupinan 8/10 – in the second half, the striker was very active on the wing and gave up 6 Ley passes.

Grob 8/10 – the midfielder was one of the game-changers with 6 key passes and 1 big chance created.

Dahoud 7/10 – the German player did not have a great debut and although he made 2 Ley passes he lost most of the ground he had in midfield.

March 8/10 – the left winger tried several dribbles and had several duels but lost most of them, however, he scored the first goal of the match.

Pedro 8/10 – the Brazilian player was not very decisive in the first half but improved in the second half, he was responsible for taking the penalty and scoring Brighton’s second goal.

Mitoma 8/10 – although the Japanese player did not score he was one of the most consistent players in both the first and second half.

Welbeck 7/10 – the veteran striker was not very accurate in the few shots he had although hit woodwork eleven.


Gilmour 6/10

Adingra 7/10

Ferguson 7/10

Veltman 6/10

Enciso 6/10

Luton Player Ratings:

Kaminaki 8/10 – although conceding four goals, it should be mentioned that his eight saves kept the setback from being significantly worse.

Andersen 6/10 – he only won one of his six duels and had limited success in the opposition attacks.

Lockyer 6/10 – his pass accuracy was just 70%, even with the aerial ground he had.

Bell scored 6 points on 4 clereances, 2 interceptions, and 3 tackles. He did, however, lose half of the individual duels.

Chong 6/10 because he was not at his best defensively, did not make a single clearance, and was limited offensively by his club.

Nakamba 6/10 for winning four of the seven ground duels but losing the two serial ones. I made one important pass.

Mpanzu 5/10 because his crosses were inaccurate, he lost possession six times, and he only won half of his duels.

Kaboré 6/10 because his function as a winger was underutilized due to the team’s prolonged defensive phase. 

Morris 7/10 because, in addition to scoring his team’s lone goal, he levelled on a couple of non-target situations and won a few balls back.

Adebayo 6/10 He was constantly chasing the ball but made minimal contact with it, so his attacking contributions were few and far between.


Doughty 5/10

Brown 6/10

Ogbene 5/10

Berry N/A

Woodrow N/A

Player of the match: Pervis Estupinan

The Ecuadorian full-back was without a doubt the most important player on the field. Defensively, he took the majority of Luton’s attacks down the left wing.

Pervis Estupinan was at his best when he joined Brighton’s offensive play. The majority of his key passes resulted in goals.
