Aston Villa face Wigan in the second round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday evening.
Villa got back to winning ways on Saturday with a 4-2 victory over Norwich City at Villa Park, and they will be hoping that they can make it two wins on the bounce, and progress to the next round.
In the first round of this cup, they travelled down to Essex, and managed to see off a determined Colchester side 2-1. Many Villa fans would have expected a bigger score line, but credit has to be given to Colchester for battling it out and making it hard for the visitors in appalling weather conditions.
Wigan have started life in league one with 3 wins from 3 games, but Villa, despite the numerous changes that Bruce is likely to make, should still have enough to see beat them and get through to round three.
Here is our predicted XI for Tuesday’s game against Wigan:
