Hatters boss Rob Edwards is confident his side will remain in the Premier League. Speaking to the BBC, he said: "I am incredibly confident in this group that they will be very competitive this year. "We all know what we want to achieve and we want to try and be in the Premier League again next season.
Brighton have only failed to score in one of their last 28 Premier League matches, netting in each of their last 16 in a row since a 1-0 home defeat to Fulham in February. It's the Seagulls' longest scoring run in league football since a run of 22 between March and September 2011. Luton finished the 2022-23 league season (excluding play-offs) with a 14-game unbeaten run (W8 D6), conceding just seven goals in this period. It's their longest run without defeat since a 28-game streak in League One between October and April in 2018-19. Luton didn't win a single away league game in their last season as a top-flight club in 1991-92, drawing five and losing 16 of their 21 games.
This is the first time Brighton and Luton will meet in their first league games of a season since the 1928-29 campaign in the Third Division South, won 1-0 by the Hatters. Brighton have won their opening league game in each of the last two seasons, last doing so in three consecutive campaigns between 1974-75 and 1976-77. This will be Luton's first top-flight game since a 2-1 loss to Notts County in May 1992. They're the 51st team to play in the Premier League, with two of the last three clubs making their debut in the competition winning their opening match (Huddersfield in 2017, Brentford in 2021). Brighton lost three of their six Premier League games against promoted sides last season (W2 D1), as many defeats as they'd suffered in their previous three campaigns combined (W8 D7 L3).
