      That will entirely depend on whether Villa want to play the game or not.
      If they want it played and out of the way they'll have 14 players who have tested negative.
      All the postponements smack of teams having a breather/allowing injured players more time to return.

      Pretty sure they would have to prove that they couldn't raise a side and not go there word for it

      Hypothetically, if the game is postponed and rearranged the week before the 4th round, but we then have an outbreak, will it be us that has to forfeit?

      So Derby County are planning to use youth players in their match vs. Chorley.

      Southampton are apparently on the verge of receiving a walkover since Shrewsbury Town are struggling to field a team.

      I'm not looking for either of these for us, but what is it that makes any of these three scenarios (youth players, walkover, postponement) kick in for one match or another?

      We couldn't raise a first X1 last year we didn't forfeit we played the reserves/Youth so if you can't make 14 players out of that lot being a premier league team then I'm staggered

      Sure. But I'm trying to understand what makes the rules kick in for each of these three outcomes.

      And here lies the incostincency it seems . I am sure I am wrong but thought the 14 player rule was in place and if that is not met has to be a forfeit unless a rearranged date but this is the problem we have planned for this game and the break we don't want this stuffing in between two league games midweek

      So if it goes ahead we will be playing a weakened team

      Hopefully we can nick a win and get our season back on track - football is the only thing to look forward to

      Nick a win? we should hammer there u23's and youth teams even with our fringe players mixed with the first team,if not i would start to seriously worry about our form, i would play one of our front 3 bring on the other 2 for shooting practise in the last 25 minutes to build their confidence for the United game.Really looking forward to it now,they are due a beating after the last 2 games at villa park against us.

      After hearing this news i think Jürgen will go with quite a strong team,it will then be like a training session and he can make 5 subs if/when he needs to,I reckon he will go
      Kelleher,Tsimikas,R Williams,Henderson,N Williams,Milner,Clarkson,Jones,Origi,Minamino,Salah,and bring on Mane and Firmino after 65 minutes.

      I’ve made my prediction, but thinking I may need to change it depending on what side we put out.
      Of course by the time the team is appointed, it’s usually too late to change 😳
      May have to stick with it. 0-2 to the red men !

      Excited that Villa is going to play the reserves. We always get such shitty draws in the cups that we could really use a break.

      Too bad Nancy Keita is hurt still because this would have been a great game for him to get minutes and back in rhythm. Would like to see Kelleher, Neco, Tsimikas, Ox, Clarkson and Taki all start, and may be an opportunity for Van den Berg and/or Koumetio to get another shot at playing time with the main squad.
