Here is a look at how they could line up...

GK: Emi Martinez: He has fresh competition for his place between the sticks from new signing Joe Gauci.

RB: Matty Cash: The former Nottingham Forest man scored the winner away at Middlesbrough in the third round.

CB: Diego Carlos: He started last time out as Aston Villa beat Sheffield United 5-0 at Bramall Lane.

CB: Clement Lenglet: The centre-back is on loan from Barcelona.

LB: Alex Moreno: He scored the fifth goal against the Blades last time out.

CAM: Youri Tielemens: The ex-Leicester City man plays in a more advanced central midfield role these days.

ST: Ollie Watkins: Jhon Duran, who was linked with Chelsea this winter, is injured which paves the way for Watkins to start up top once again as he looks to add his goal tally for this campaign.
