It’s EFL Cup time! Tonight Aston Villa hosts Stoke in a match from the 1/8 finals of the tournaments. The game is set to take place at Villa Park in Birmingham at 19:00 GMT 0.

The team of Aston Villa has been in an impressive form as in the domestic league they recorded 2 consecutive wins against Sheffield United (1-0) and Fulham (0-3). Villa has been reinforced during the week with the loan deal of Ross Barkley. Currently the team looks closer to the teams in top 10 rather than a team who will be engaged with the relegation battle. We are sure that Villa will not underestimate this match.

Stoke started their current campaign in Championship in a promising way. The team recorded a win against the strong team of Preston as guests in the last round. In EFL Cup, Stoke eliminated Wolves (0-1) and Gillingham (1-0). Now they are going to face another challenge in the face of Villa.
