Aston Villa vs Liverpool: Match preview

The Carabao Cup quarter-finals play out this week, beginning with Aston Villa versus Liverpool on Tuesday.

Aston Villa have won this competition on five previous occasions. The last time they lifted the League Cup was in 1995-96.

Villa have also been runners-up on three occasions. They were last in the final in 2009-10, when they lost to Man United.

Liverpool have won the Carabao Cup eight times – that’s a record.

Moreover, Liverpool have reached the final on another four occasions.

But will Liverpool be knocked out of the cup this midweek?

That’s a huge possibility as Liverpool’s first-team have flown to Qatar to take part in the FIFA Club World Cup.

That means Villa will be playing a Liverpool B-team.

Liverpool’s team at Villa Park will be managed by Reds Under-23 boss Neil Critchley.

For Villa, this situation poses a possible problem.

Villa will be overwhelming favourites to win on Tuesday – can they meet expectations?

Will Dean Smith ring the changes for Liverpool?

Villa come into the match on the back of three defeats in a row.

Last weekend in the Premier League, Villa lost 2-0 away at Sheffield United.

Jack Grealish missed a penalty for the Villains in the defeat.

Tyrone Mings missed the Sheffield United game with a thigh injury, and the centre-half is expected to be sidelined for several weeks.

Conor Hourihane is also a doubt for the Liverpool match after suffering a knock.

Villa’s other injury problems surround fringe squad members Keinan Davis and Jed Steer.
