Predicted Aston Villa starting line-up vs Barrow

Aston Villa take on Barrow in the Carabao Cup later tonight and Dean Smith’s men will be looking to pick up a comfortable win away from home.

Villa head into this game on the back of a 2-0 win over Newcastle United, and they will be full of confidence.

The Premier League club are undoubtedly the favourites to progress to the next round, given the strength of the respective squads.

However, they cannot afford to underestimate the League Two opposition as Barrow will fancy their chances of springing an upset here.

Smith is likely to make wholesale changes to the side that comfortably defeated Newcastle United over the weekend.

The youngsters are likely to get an opportunity to showcase their potential, with the likes of Danny Ings, John McGinn and Tyrone Mings amongst the players who will be rested.

Wesley Moraes could be given a chance to build up some match fitness after his return from injury.

The 24-year-old Brazilian will be desperate to impress and prove he is ready to feature in the Premier League.

Predicted Aston Villa starting line-up: Steer; Cash, Tuanzebe, Hause, Targett; Hourihane, Nakamba, Ramsey; Philogene-Bidace, Wesley, El Ghazi.

Predicted Barrow starting line-up: Farman; Brown, Ellis, Grayson; Hutton, Banks, White, Brough; Gordon, Zanzala, Williams.
