Elijah Adebayo secures his first hat-trick as Luton Town dominate Brighton 4-0, pushing them out of the relegation zone.

Adebayo and Chiedozie Ogbene strike within three minutes, marking Luton's most substantial Premier League victory to date.

The match kicks off with a poignant moment as Tom Lockyer, Luton's captain, returns to Kenilworth Road after a cardiac arrest. His presence inspires Luton to a blazing start, with Adebayo scoring in just 18 seconds, assisted by Ogbene and Carlton Morris.

Ogbene extends the lead in the third minute, capitalizing on a defensive lapse by Brighton's goalkeeper, Jason Steele, after a precise pass from Albert Sambi Lokonga.

Adebayo adds his second before halftime, courtesy of a well-timed pass from Ross Barkley. Despite Jordan Clark's offside-disallowed goal, Luton maintains momentum, with Adebayo completing his hat-trick from Alfie Doughty's corner.

The resounding victory lifts Luton out of the relegation zone to 17th place with 19 points, overtaking Everton. Brighton slips to eighth with 32 points.

Key Facts:

- Luton's lightning-fast two-goal lead within two minutes and 17 seconds ranks among the earliest in Premier League history.

- Adebayo's hat-trick marks Luton's first top-flight treble since 1990 and the first at Kenilworth Road since 1988.
