English EFL Cup

English EFL Cup, quarter-finals. It won't be the usual Aston Villa v Liverpool match here today. A win for the English league leaders here would give us odds as high as 8. But that's because Liverpool have to play in two tournaments at the same time: the EFL Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup. For this reason, we need to see what both teams will put on the pitch today and what the motivation will be to go further in the tournament.

Aston Villa v Liverpool

Starting with Aston Villa, they will put a competitive side on the pitch today and will do their best to advance to the next round. They should represent their home team: Nyland; Elmohamady, Konsa, Hause, Taylor; Lansbury, Luiz, McGinn; Jota, Kodjia, Trezeguet, which means somewhere between 1-2 line-ups. As for Liverpool, we will see a very unusual line-up today. Kelleher; Hoever, Van den Berg, Clayton, Larouci; Chirivella, Dixon-Bonner, Kane; Elliott, Brewster, Longstaff, with coach Neil Critchley at the forefront. Completely unheard of names, youngsters who could be identified as possibly 3-4 in the Liverpool line-up. Looking at these line-ups, it is no wonder why the match odds are set in this way. What should we expect in this situation? We would expect goals. Aston Villa should press and attack Liverpool's youngsters from the start of the match. And Liverpool also have some talent in their squad who can score a goal or two without feeling any pressure and when given the chance to perform. From a slightly statistical point of view, Aston Villa's average goal average in the Premier League is 3.1, which means that it is a team that favours the Overis and has a lot of potential in attack and less in defence.

So, in the English EFL Cup, given the current situation of the teams, we believe that Aston Villa are capable and will try to advance to the next round, but we can't write off Liverpool's talented youngsters either. We expect goals from both teams and a productive game, good luck.
