Middlesbrough are back in action this week as they head to familiar surroundings in Villa Park to play Aston Villa in the EFL Cup.
The men from the Riverside were playing at Villa Park not that long ago in the Championship, of course, as a 0-0 draw was played out with both ending the game with ten men.
This time around, though, a winner will be decided on the night and the likes of Patrick Bamford and Britt Assombalonga will be looking to be the men to fire Boro to victory.
Whilst we wait to see if that happens, though, a few of men from the Riverside have been mucking around with Bamford posting a video of Britt Assombalonga having the life scared out of him in his hotel room.
Fans, then, have reacted to this on Twitter and so, with that in mind, here is the best of the reaction:

Class respect, you need to go and see IT and have some red balloons ready and a clown face to get another target
