Aston Villa look doomed after their capitulation against Liverpool at the weekend.
Remi Garde’s side went into the match buoyed by their 2-0 victory against Norwich City last time out, but the Premier League’s bottom club were completely outplayed by the Reds who scored seemingly at will.
The result – and more importantly the performance – suggests any faint hope Villa had of avoiding relegation this season has now gone, and Little did not hold back when reflecting on a dark day for the club and their fans.
“I’ve had 46 years of Aston Villa in my blood, in many respects, and yesterday was the hardest day I’ve had to sit and watch the team play,” Little told Talk Sport.
“There wasn’t an individual in the team who had a good game or anywhere near a good game…everyone played so far beneath their best it was untrue.”
Villa have struggled for most of the campaign but recent performances under Garde did suggest they had turned a corner, if perhaps too late.
However, all that good work has quickly been forgotten and it is hard to imagine how Villa’s players will pick themselves up for the matches ahead, with relegation all but a foregone conclusion.
