Jamie Carragher: 'Aston Villa are an embarrassment'

Jamie Carragher labels Aston Villa an "embarrassment" and believes that they are among the worst Premier League sides ever after losing 6-0 to Liverpool at Villa Park.

Jamie Carragher has launched a scathing attack on Aston Villa after watching his former club Liverpool hit Remi Garde's side for six this afternoon.

Daniel Sturridge, James Milner, Emre Can, Divock Origi, Nathaniel Clyne and Kolo Toure were all on the scoresheet for the Reds as Villa slumped to their heaviest home defeat since 1935.

The result leaves them with just 16 points to their name this season, and Carragher believes that they could be the worst side to have ever played in the Premier League.

"They are an embarrassment Aston Villa, they have been for a few years," Carragher told Sky Sports News.

"I was just thinking about how difficult it is for young kids, their dream is to play in the Premier League - if you watch Aston Villa that gives you hope. How can those players be playing in the Premier League, at that level?

"I can't imagine one Premier League manager looking at that team and thinking there is one player I would like to take into my squad. I said at half time that they were one of the worst I've seen and I was reliably informed that Derby and Sunderland were maybe the worst. But forget about what points they had - I think they are the worst I've seen. That's as bad as it goes."

Villa are currently eight points adrift of safety with just 12 games of the season remaining.
