Jamie Carragher has slammed Aston Villa and called them the worst side in the EPL, after their 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool.
Villa have stayed bottom of the table all season, having just 16 points from 26 matches.
Remi Garde’s men have looked destined for relegation for the entire campaign and their collapse against Jurgen Klopp’s men at Villa Park, with six different scorers getting in on the action, sparked a tirade from former Liverpool captain Carragher.
“They’re an embarrassment, Villa, and they have been for a few years,” he said on Sky Sports. “If that team were in the Championship, they’d be closer to the bottom than the top.
“Thinking of how difficult it is for young kids whose dream it is to play in the Premier League, well that gives anyone hope.
“Of the teams that go down, there’s always a player or two managers who look at who they’d like to take, but I can’t think of a single player from that squad who you’d want in your team.
“I said before I think this is the worst Premier League side of all time – and was reliably informed it’d be Derby or Sunderland – but I think forget the points, that right there is the worst I’ve ever seen.
“I can’t remember those other seasons, but that’s the worst.”
Villa have won just three games in the English top flight this term and sit eight points from safety following Sunday’s result.
