Just checking this is the match thread?!
Bizarrely it's a complete role reversal from our League Cup quarter-final last year except this year its the Villa kids.
Fully expect Jürgen to field a team of squad players and youngsters. I think we might see Thiago to improve his match fitness but I would be surprised to see Fab or any of the senor defenders play. Minutes for Keita, Ox, Origi, Minamino and Shaq. I'm just happy to see the team play on a Friday night, feet up, got a bottle of champers in the fridge left over from Chrimbo so hopefully a win and through to the next round!
