Aston Villa are through to the Carabao Cup semi-finals after thrashing an inexperienced Liverpool team 5-0.

With the Reds' first-team at the Club World Cup in Qatar, they fielded the youngest starting XI in the club's history.

Ireland Under-21 international Caoimhin Kelleher provided the last line of defence for a team with an average age of 19.48 years.

Unfortunately for Kelleher and co, it was also a night to forget as the away side fell to a five-goal defeat at Villa Park.

Ireland midfielder Conor Hourihane gave Aston Villa a 14th-minute lead,  before a second goal went in off Morgan Boyes just three minutes later.

Jonathan Kodjia also added two more before the end of the first-half to put the game out of sight.

Wesley scored the Birmingham club's fifth deep into stoppage time.

Meanwhile, in Qatar, Liverpool's frontline players will face Mexico's Monterrey in the Club World Cup semi-final on Wednesday night.

Should they progress, they will face Copa Libertadores champions Flamengo in the Doha decider.

The Brazilian giants had beaten Saudi Arabia's Al Hilal in Tuesday's semi-final.
