First things first. You’re not watching today’s Carabao Cup game unless you’re at the stadium. TV rights prevent the Cup game from being streamed. That means your only way to follow this match is via Twitter, via AVTV radio, or via actually being there.
Villa take on Burton Albion, with rotation in mind as both sides look to secure a place in the third round of the competition.
There’s not much Villa can take from this match, as early cup ties have been historically horrific for Aston Villa - away from home. Don’t expect much at all.
