Now a League One side Bolton are still looking for their maiden EFL Cup success. Since first entering during the 1971/72 season they’ve reached the final on two occasions but were beaten 2-1 each time by Liverpool (1995) and then Middlesbrough (2004). It’s been a while since Bolton have progressed beyond round two. That last round three appearance came in 2017/18 when they fell to a 3-0 loss against West Ham.

As for Villa they’ve won this competition five times albeit their most recent success came in 1996 when they ran out 3-0 winners against Leeds, that being said, Villa would reach two finals since then but would fall to both Manchester clubs ten years apart (2-1 v Man Utd, 2010 and 2-1 v Man City, 2020). Villa were dumped out of the EFL Cup third round by Chelsea on penalties last season. They’ve only failed to get out of the second round just twice across the previous ten seasons.
