As Aston Villa fans will know, the draw for the fifth round of the EFL Cup took place this morning and our reward for taking a 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday evening, was a clash against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side.

Not a great draw given their form this year, but that’s making the assumption they will even honour their obligations as there is already a threat to boycott the game as the expected fixture date will fall whilst they are out in Qatar at the pointless Club World Cup competition.

No doubt there will be a fudge on the fixture dates to suit them, but the draw itself certainly left plenty of Villa fans on social media in a mixed mood given the draws that other perceived favoured Premier League sides got – the threat to pull out was simply the icing on the cake.
