TEAM NEWS

Only midfielder Douglas Luiz and winger Trรฉzรฉguet were retained in the starting XI from the preceding league match.

As with the previous two EFL Cup fixtures Jed Steer was named as goalkeeper with Ezri Konsa and Kortney Hause recalled to the defence with Neil Taylor recalled to the starting line up after a 5 game absence together with Ahmed Elmohamady who had been out of contention across the previous 4 fixtures. Henri Lansbury started for the first time since late August whilst Conor Hourihane was promoted from the bench along with Anwar El Ghazi.

A strong looking bench was named but for the first time this season in the EFL Cup no youth team members were represented instead James Chester appeared on the bench for the first time this season after a prolonged spell on the sidelines due to injury along with Jonathan Kodjia, himself returning from injury, John McGinn, Wesley, Marvelous Nakamba, Frรฉdรฉric Guilbert and ร˜rjan Nyland.
