West Ham, Newcastle and Crystal Palace are all in action in the Carabao Cup second round on Tuesday, with Aston Villa’s trip to Burton Albion live on Sky Sports.
Burton are without John-Joe O’Toole following his red card in the loss to Fleetwood on Saturday. New signing Charles Vernam missed that match through injury, but is likely to be in contention. Reece Hutchinson is a fitness doubt, but Ryan Edwards and Lucas Akins have recovered from knocks.
Aston Villa manager Dean Smith is set to hand debuts to Ollie Watkins and Matty Cash while Mbwana Samatta, Tom Heaton, Kortney Hause and Wesley Moraes are among those that will be pushing for inclusion.
How to follow and watch highlights: Burton Albion vs Aston Villa will be live on Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event from 7.30pm; kick-off is at 7.45pm. Sky Sports customers can watch in-game clips in the live match blog on the Sky Sports website and app. Highlights will also be published on the Sky Sports digital platforms and the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel shortly after the final whistle.
