Carabao Cup third round live from Ashton Gate with the winners playing Stoke City in the fourth round next week

Hello and welcome to Ashton Gate as Dean Smith takes on his former Walsall mate Dean Holden when Villa takes on Bristol City tonight

The two teams met in pre-season just a month ago as tonight the winners face Stoke City at home in next week’s fourth round

As for Villa, £ 17million signing Bertrand Traore is set to make his debut after watching from the stands in Monday’s 1-0 win over Sheffield United

Lyon’s summer arrival is set to be one of 10 or 11 changes to the Villa squad that beat the Blades earlier this week Villa, of course, will have an eye on Monday’s Premier clash League with Fulham

In the previous round, Smith named a solid starting XI with players like Tyrone Mings, Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins all playing from the start against Burton Albion However, against the City Championship outfit he promises to be a changed XI with players like Jed Steer, Ahmed Elmohamady and Keinan Davis Talented prospect Jacob Ramsey is set to start again in central midfielder

Stay with us as we prepare for tonight’s game (kick off at 7pm) Villa correspondent Ashley Preece will be inside Ashton Gate bringing you all the team news, Dean Smith’s press conference goal updates and post-game reaction Our live blog, below, will be updated automatically

I pointed out before that that Villa may have been short center-back Bjorn Engels is still missing due to a thigh injury Ezri Konsa had a hamstring problem the other night while ‘It’s clear Tyrone Mings isn’t risky in front of Fulham on Monday

I would have liked to see a youngster ride, maybe Mungo Bridge or Dom Reven, but Smith left with the experience and will put the cunning old Elmo in the center back alongside Kortney Hause The Egyptian is a cool customer, it must be said

Elsewhere, it’s nice to see Jacob Ramsey come back to midfield against better opposition this time around

All eyes will be on the beginner Bertrand Traoré He wears the no15 tonight and will start on the right with Frédéric Guilbert – back from the cold – just behind him at the right back

Another surprise sees Orjan Nyland spending the night Lovre Kalinic enters as Villa undercap tonight Under-18 goalkeeper Akos Onodi is warm-up keeper Jed Steer obviously starts in goal

It’s also a big night for El Ghazi, who flattered to cheat on the previous round at Burton

Villa has plenty of options off the bench if they need them: McGinn, Trezeguet and Watkins

Freshly signed to a new four-year deal, Keinan Davis is likely to start tonight as Villa’s lone striker

Davis seems to have edged out Mbwana Samatta, the Tanzanian closing in on a move to Fenerbahce

As for Davis, however, here is our take on Villa’s decision to give him a new and improved offering

All in all, this would have been a bitter pill to swallow just to allow Davis to terminate his contract or be sold for peanuts to a championship club given the time and development devoted to him.

Davis is here for the long haul now and, with contract issues and injuries behind him, it would only be fair to judge him from now on in what will surely be a better and more creative Aston Villa team

With Jacob Ramsey and Marvelous Nakamba nearly nailed to start tonight, there seems to be a decision to be made instead of playing alternate midfielder Henri Lansbury or John McGinn

Lansbury, of course, played in the last round against Burton and helped Jack Grealish’s latest crush yet it’s McGinn who could get the nod tonight as Smith looks to rediscover his spark

The Scottish midfielder disappointed on Monday night, but his pace of work and effort remained high against Sheffield United at 10

Here’s what Smith had to say when asked if McGinn’s fitness issues were behind him as a result of concurrent injuries last season:

He’s in the know He played a few passes out of play and will be a little frustrated with the balls he gave, but it was once again an unqualified performance

The Burkinabe winger should start from the right tonight, ahead of Ahmed Elmohamady who will be at the right-back

All the papers are done now and he will be ready for Bristol City He gives us the extra quality we need and competition for places is what we want if we are to be a high quality team « 

Bristol City will likely give ex-Albion Chris Brunt, 35, his first start since his summer departure from the Hawthorns

Brunt could be a very important player for City this season in terms of being able to fit in and do his job with the minimum of fuss, while also being an influential voice in the dressing room.

Bristol City (3-5-2): Max O’Leary; Zak Vyner, Alfie Mawson, Taylor Moore; Steven Sessegnon, Adam Nagy, Kasey Palmer, Chris Brunt, Niclas Eliasson; Famara Diedhiou, Antoine Semenyo

As for team news, there is a potential issue for Villa at Bristol knowing that Ezri Konsa has had a slight issue with his left hamstring

The center-back, Monday’s goal hero, was in inspired form against Sheffield United and he is unlikely to be risky tonight Smith, however, is hopeful that Bjorn Engels will shed some tension at thigh in time, otherwise Tyrone Mings will have to step in, which will see him play three games in a week

Kortney Hause is a banker starting at Bristol with the ex-Wolves man being a cup contender for the coming season If Engels is missing yet again, young center-back Dominic Reven, 20, may well be summoned to the bench

Full-back Neil Taylor will win the Carabao Cup again while Ahmed Elmohamady on the right is ahead of Frédéric Guilbert in terms of Villa hierarchy Matty Cash will be Villa’s right-back in the Premier League and he could have a deserved night on Thursday after impressive debut in the league

Aston Villa has released their new third kit for the 2020-21 season – and it pays homage to the city of Birmingham and the surrounding area where Villa fans reside

Aside from the traditional burgundy and blue stripe and black number that they will be wearing in away games this season, Villa now has the third option of the white stripe, with navy blue and lime trim

At a glance, it looks like the shirt design is a white and gray camouflage, but Villa explained in her release video that it was actually a map of the West Midlands

We watched them (against Sheffield United) Keith (Downing) walked through them and watched them I was really interested to see how they were doing against this Sheffield United 3-5-2 – obviously similar to us

They are a good team, a Premier League side with a great squad They made some changes in that opener against Burton, but we can’t really guess which team they are going to come out

Afternoon, all The game is coming on fast and well now, this is Villa’s second game in a three-game week

A place in the last 16 games against Stoke City is up for grabs while a well-modified Villa XI is to be expected

Villa drew 1-1 with Bristol City last month in two 60-minute friendlies, with Mbwana Ally Samatta scoring Villa’s goal in South Wales
