Luiz was a substitute at Bramell Lane but gets the start tonight ahead of Henri Lansbury.

Jonathan Kodjia leads the line for Villa tonight as Wesley drops to the bench. Also on the bench are Jack Grealish and John McGinn, who was an injury doubt prior to the game tonight.

As for the Visitors tonight, Liverpool Rhian Brewster misses out through injury as they are set to field their youngest starting XI in the club’s history.

Here’s how the visitors will line-up for tonight’s game:

With a place in the last four at stake and a very very young Liverpool team in front of them, Villa will look to get the job done without any hiccups.
