Most Premier League teams have entered the competition at this stage, and many will have their eyes fixed on the prize from an early stage.

Villa reached the final of the competition last season but were defeated 2-1 at the hands of Manchester City in the showpiece game at Wembley – one of the last full-capacity events before lockdown.

Burton lost their first competitive game in six months 2-1 against Fleetwood as League One finally returned last weekend.

They head into the season without Nigel Clough at the helm after the Brewers’ favourite departed the club over the summer.

Burton v Aston Villa team news

Burton: John-Joe O’Toole is the only confirmed absentee after being sent off in the season opener at the weekend.

Colin Daniel is tipped to replace him in defence with a reshuffle of the backline.

Aston Villa: No issues other than long-term absentees Wesley and Tom Heaton.

Smith could be tempted to field a strong XI given their next game isn’t until next Monday.

Our prediction: Burton v Aston Villa

Fitness is key in the early stages of the season for both teams. For that reason, Villa boss Dean Smith may be keen to give some of his first-team stars a chance to build their sharpness as opposed to resting them.

Burton are a solid League One unit, but there are fears for the club’s future on the field as cost-cutting measures led to Clough’s departure.

Villa should get the job done smoothly here.

Our prediction: Burton 1-3 Aston Villa

(Aston Villa to win 3-1: 12/1 at bet365)
