Middlesbrough vs Aston Villa team news

Middlesbrough

With thee wins and three losses in the last six games in Championship, Middlesbrough have been quite inconsistent recently, but that's also been the case for the most part in the league. Meanwhile, Middlesbrough have reached EFL Cup semi-final, although they didn't have to play any Premier League clubs to get there, so their odds to lift the FA Cup are already considerably lower given their 3rd round opposition.

The team is currently without Seny Dieng, Riley McGree, and Sam Silvera who are away with their national teams. On top of that, Darragh Lenihan, Tom Smith, Lewis O'Brien, Marcus Forss, Hayden Hackney, Emmanuel Latte Lath, Patrick McNair, and Matt Crooks are out with injuries.

Predicted LineupGlover – Van den Berg, Clarke, Fry, Bangura – Barlaser, Howson – Jones, Rogers, Greenwood – Coburn

Aston Villa

Things have been going incredibly well for the Villans so far since the team currently sits in the 2nd place in Premier League, right in the middle of the title race. Emery's squad enters 3rd round of FA Cup with one loss in their last 12 games in all competitions, so anything other than a win over their Championship opposition would be a disappointment.

Meanwhile, Tyrone Mings, Emiliano Buendia, Youri Tielemans, Lucas Digne, Robin Olsen, and Matty Cash will miss the match with injuries.

Predicted LineupMartinez – Chambers, Lenglet, Konsa, Moreno – Zaniolo, Kamara, McGinn, Bailey – Watkins, Duran

Player to watch: Ollie Watkins

One of the key reasons why Aston Villa is currently sitting in the second place in Premier League is Ollie Watkins. The English striker has 9 goals and 8 assists in 20 appearances in the league and he will look to contribute to the team's good run in the FA Cup too.
