Aston Villa have been drawn at home against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup. The match will take place at Villa Park on a weekday evening on the W/C October 28th.
Previously, Aston Villa had earned the chance to take the second step on their League Cup journey after beating Crewe Alexandra 6-1. Conor Hourihane scored twice, with Jack Grealish, Ezri Konsa, Frederic Guilbert, and Keinan Davis adding a goal each. Today, they earned their place in the fourth round by beating Brighton 3-1 at the Amex Stadium. Jack Grealish scored - with Jota and Conor Hourihane preceding him - to send Villa through to the next round.
Their local rivals, Wolves, beat Reading after a penalty shootout. Nuno’s men have struggled slightly in the league so far and will be looking to spark some joy in their cup runs - they are also playing in European football this season.
This is the furthest that Aston Villa have gotten in the League Cup for a number of years, and to go one step further, they will have to slay the Wolves. Up the Villa.
