Yay League Cup! Yay crazy attacking lineup for Aston Villa! The Villans have put Andi Weimann into midfield and pushed Barry Bannan out wide, leaving both Fabian Delph and Marc Albrighton on the bench. This could be either terrifying or seriously fun. Let's hope it's the latter.
Also, note that former Villa forward James Collins is starting for the Robins.
