šŸ’µ Aston Villa vs Liverpool - prediction, team news, lineups

A place in the last four of the EFL Cup is up for grabs as Aston Villa host a Liverpool team that will be full of academy players, as the first team has traveled to Qatar for the Club World Cup.

The match will be overseen by Liverpool Under-23 boss Neil Critchley as he attempts to get the youth team into the semis. It will be Liverpool, yes, but not what we are used to seeing on a Tuesday night.

Here's our preview and best bets!

🔢 Team news

Aston Villa:

Aston Villa are also likely to take this chance to field some youngsters. Dean Smith, however, is likely to be without four first-team players, with Tyrone Mings (thigh) the major absentee.

Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Nyland; Elmohamady, Konsa, Hause, Taylor; McGinn, Luiz, Lansbury; Jota, Kodjia, Trezeguet.

Liverpool:

As mentioned, a hugely inexperienced squad has been named for the game. Two youngsters who won’t be involved against Villa are Neco Williams and Curtis Jones, both of whom have joined their older colleagues in Qatar.

Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Kelleher; However, van den Berg, Boyes, Gallacher; Christie-Davies, Chirivella, Kane; Elliott, Brewster, Longstaff.

🤔 Prediction

Stranger things have happened before in football, yes, but this is a match Liverpool might just go in expecting a loss. You might argue that they beat a somewhat decent Arsenal team to get here, but this is tough.

The simple fact is that this will be a Premier League side against an Under-23 side, and when it boils down to that there can surely only be one outcome.

We say: Aston Villa 3 Liverpool 1
