Despite the fact that Luton have only collected five points from nine games this season, Manager Rob Edwards insists that his side will be ready for the challenge of stopping Villa’s attack.

Villa: Jacob Ramsey, Alex Moreno, Tyrone Mings, Emiliano Buendia

Luton Town: Reece Burke, Mads Andersen, Amari’I Bell, Jordan Clark, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Dan Potts
