Aston Villa fans want Jonathan Kodjia to start against Liverpool

Aston Villa host Liverpool on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have claimed that Jonathan Kodjia should be promoted to the starting XI.

Villa go into the contest with the surprise tag of favourites, as they will be facing a Reds team managed by Under-23s coach Neil Critchley.

Liverpool’s first-team squad have travelled to Qatar to compete in the Club World Cup and it means they will have an inexperience group stacked with academy players lining up in the League Cup.

Dean Smith’s team have a great chance to reach a semi-final, but they go into the fixture in disappointing form.

A selection of Villa supporters on social media have been discussing the potential team selection to face Liverpool and there are several who believe Kodjia should get a chance.

Kodjia has made just four senior appearances across all competitions this campaign and has remarkably not started a single one.

The 30-year-old centre-forward has not really made an impact when on the pitch and has been stuck behind teammate Wesley Moraes in the pecking order.

He featured in the previous League Cup round in the 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers and many want him to get a rare opportunity.

Here are some Villa fans on Kodjia:
