Luton's lightning start, Adebayo's hat-trick stun Brighton in Premier League clash

Posted : 31 January 2024

In a sensational triumph over Brighton, Luton secured a memorable victory that propelled them out of the Premier League relegation zone. The Hatters took an early lead with two goals within the opening three minutes, orchestrated by the impressive Elijah Adebayo.


Adebayo swiftly nodded Luton in front, taking advantage of Carlton Morris' knockdown to beat Seagulls goalkeeper Jason Steele just 18 seconds into the match. Shortly after, Chiedozie Ogbene extended the lead, eluding the Brighton offside trap and slotting the ball past the onrushing Steele.


This lightning-fast 2-0 lead marked one of the quickest in Premier League history, with only Leicester City achieving a quicker advantage against Derby in April 1998. Adebayo continued to shine, securing his second goal and Luton's third late in the first half after connecting with Ross Barkley's pass.

Although Jordan Clark's apparent fourth goal was disallowed for offside early in the second half, Adebayo completed his hat-trick by heading home Alfie Doughty's corner. This historic feat made Adebayo the first Luton player to score a top-flight hat-trick since 1990 and the first at Kenilworth Road since 1988.


Despite Steele denying Morris with a late save, Brighton could not escape the humiliation of a desperate evening. Luton's victory lifted them above Everton and out of the bottom three, while Brighton dropped to eighth place.


Hatters manager Rob Edwards emphasized their attacking approach, stating that it's the best way for them to navigate the league. The result and performance showcased Luton's determination, and Edwards stressed the need to maintain their intensity and drive in the league.


Before the game, an emotional moment unfolded as Luton captain Tom Lockyer received a warm ovation from both sets of supporters during his first appearance at Kenilworth Road since suffering a cardiac arrest in December's game at Bournemouth.
