Match Preview – Aston Villa FC vs Liverpool FC

Aston Villa host a youthful Liverpool side who will feature in the Quarter Final stages of the English Football League Cup 2019/20 because their first team squad is in Qatar.

Aston Villa FC

Villa are in 17th place in the Premier League. They have 15 points from 17 games so far this campaign. In the EFL Cup, The Villains have recorded wins over Crewe Alexandra, Brighton & Hove Albion and close rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers with Dean Smith in charge. The hosts are currently on a three league matches losing streak, keeping just two cleans sheets in their last 15 matches in all competitions.

Team News

The hosts are without Jed Steer for this cup clash. They are unlikely to risk Tyrone Mings and Keinen Davis as both are doubts with thigh injuries.

The hosts have won the EFL Cup twice, beating Leeds United and Manchester United in 1994 and and 1996. They faced Manchester United in the Final again in 2010, but narrowly lost 2-1.

Liverpool FC

Liverpool are in 1st place in the Premier League. They have 49 points from 17 games so far this campaign. In the EFL Cup, The Reds have recorded wins over MK Dons and got the best against Arsenal from the penalty spot in a crazy 5-5 game with Jurgen Klopp in charge. The visitors are unbeaten in the league and have only lost once this season, however, become huge underdogs by naming their youth team to play at Villa Park.

Team News

Liverpool are without their usual first team members because of participation in the FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar. The reserve players and youth players on the fringes of the first team, such as Harvey Elliott, will play.

Having failed to win either domestic cup last season, (Third Round vs Chelsea + Third Round vs Wolves) Liverpool are risking another season without a cup run by playing such an in-experienced side.
