Easy Liverpool win over Villarreal compared to Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte: Pundit launces a bizarre rant against Villarreal after performance against Liverpool

Villarreal’s performance in their 2-0 defeat against Liverpool was dubbed a “disgrace to the Champions League” by talkSPORT host Jason Cundy.

An own-goal from Pervis Estupinan and a Sadio Mane strike two minutes later gave the Premier League side a two-goal lead in the first leg of their semi-final at Anfield.

Despite holding out for 53 minutes, the scoreline belied the LaLiga team, which had only one chance and was unable to force a save from Reds goalkeeper Alisson.

The tie is far from finished ahead of the return leg at the Estadio de la Ceramica on Tuesday – but after witnessing the Premier League side’s dominance on Wednesday night, few would give the Spanish club a chance.

As far as Champions League semi-finals go, it’s tough to imagine a more straightforward victory, and ex-Chelsea player Cundy was unimpressed.

According to him, Liverpool’s triumph was similar to Tyson Fury’s knockout win over Dillian Whyte on Saturday, and the expert also said that Virgil van Dijk could’ve been joined at the back by a Reds fan.

“First of all, congratulations to Liverpool,” he began. “Cruise control. There’s not a world that exists right now where Villarreal can trouble Liverpool at any price.

“Liverpool were totally dominant. In some ways, it was too easy for them. I don’t know what I’ve just watched – but Villarreal are a disgrace.

“That is a disgrace. UEFA must be watching that and thinking, ‘We are in big trouble’.

“If that’s what’s getting to the semi-final and facing English teams… Liverpool did not get out of second gear. That Villarreal side there was like playing the last group game against a side that’s not even good enough to drop into the Europa League.

“It was shocking. Liverpool are brilliant – but that was a disgrace to the Champions League. There are players who haven’t even broken a sweat in a Champions League semi-final.

“There’s only one team that can do anything to Liverpool right now and that’s Man City, maybe Chelsea in a one-off. They are streets ahead. Villarreal were beaten before the first whistle went.

“West Ham would give them a better game. Everton gave them a better game. I’ve got no idea how Villarreal have made it this far.

“I can’t believe what I’ve witnessed. I reckon you could’ve had a fan alongside Van Dijk tonight.

“You could’ve pulled a fan out of the stadium and said, ‘Look – it’s your lucky day, you’re going to play for Liverpool in the semi-final of the Champions League, get your kit on’.

“That’s how bad Villarreal were.”

When asked to defend his view by a Liverpool fan, who highlighted Villarreal’s resilience for much of the first hour, Cundy added: “The only shock is that it’s only 2-0.

“It was like watching Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte at the weekend.

“Liverpool were just hitting them with little jabs and eventually they were going to get their knockout.”
