Manchester City vs. Aston Villa: League Cup Open Thread

Aston Villa will have their work cut out for them if they intend to move on from the third round of the Capital One League Cup. Luckily, Manchester City is putting out a pretty weak lineup, while Villa are countering with a fairly strong (at least for Villa) one.
