“Null and void it” – Twitter reacts as Liverpool get thrashed 7-2 Aston Villa away from home

It was not a day for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool to remember as the Premier League champions were thrashed 7-2 by Aston Villa away from home.

It was a staggering performance by the Reds, who looked really off-colour from the opening five minutes.

Simply put, everything went wrong for us and Villa capitalised. A few errors at the back and some heavily deflected shots all went against us.

These aren’t excuses, but will hopefully help us remember that this is a freak result and we’ll be able to put it right after the international break.

It was harrowing to go through, though – the final whistle was a thing of mercy – and loads of Liverpool fans and journalists have been responding on social media.

Take a look at some select tweets below, with The Athletic’s James Pearce leading the way by saying we should “null and void it” after the humbling result.
