Daniel Farke’s side might have lost star forwards Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma over the summer, but they are vying for promotion once again and boast a wealth of exciting young players. The winner of tonight’s tie will face either Manchester United or Manchester City in the final. Follow all the action live below:
