Steve Bruce’s men travel to Yeovil this evening, with the Villa boss set to ring the changes for the Carabao Cup clash.
Speaking about his plans ahead of the game, Bruce said: “One thing last year was I didn’t think I used the squad well enough at times.
“I know it’s still early, but we’ve got eight games coming up and to get up and running the squad needs to get games under their belt.”
Bruce rested numerous key players on the weekend as Villa beat Wigan 3-2 at Villa Park.
Villa have won their opening two Championship games following their play-off final heartbreak last season at the hands of Fulham.
Yeovil, meanwhile, have picked up one point from their opening League Two games, losing at Bury and drawing against Mansfield.
It’s the first time Villa have played Yeovil in a competitive game.
And Express Sport has all the details of how to watch and stream the clash this evening.
