Aston Villa advanced into the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup after they defeated local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers at Villa Park on Wednesday night.
They will face this weekend’s Premier League opponents Liverpool in the next round after Jurgen Klopp’s side defeated Arsenal on penalties having battled out a ten-goal thriller in regulation time.
Anwar El Ghazi and Ahmed Elmohamady got on the scoresheet for Villa with Patrick Cutrone bagging the visitors’ only goal.

Dean Smith rotated his side, giving the likes of Keinan Davis and Ezri Konsa a rare opportunity, but he also kept Trezeguet and Douglas Luiz in the starting line up.
And it was the performance from the Brazilian which has left fans up in B6 literally salivating over his contribution to the win.
One supporter claimed the potential the 21-year-old holds is ‘scary’ while another believed Luiz ran the game from midfield.
‘Sensational’ and ‘absolutely class’ were just two of the other phrases used to describe his showing.
A further member of the Villa Park faithful went as far as saying that the former Manchester City ace was ‘levels above every player on the pitch’ on Wednesday night.
Here’s the best of the reaction:
Douglas luiz last night was sensational #avfc

Despite his mistake for the goal, thought Douglas Luiz was in top form tonight. 🇧🇷
Always makes himself available to recieve, then immediately looks for the forward pass. Easy to forget he’s still only 21, plenty of growth still there.
Can see why Pep rates him, player. #AVFC
