The early team news ahead of Aston Villa vs Everton in the Carabao Cup Third Round.

Aston Villa and Everton face one another for the second time in the space of six weeks as they meet in the Carabao Cup Third Round on Wednesday.

The Villans won the previous encounter by four goals to nil and will be hoping for a similar result as Unai Emery’s men look to advance.

The Toffees will be buoying with some renewed confidence, however, as they beat Brentford 3-1 away from home at the weekend.

Everton just about edge Villa on the injury news front, with four players on the list as opposed to the five of this week’s hosts. Here’s a full run-through.
