Defending Premier League champions Liverpool were handed a rude reality check by Aston Villa, with Dean Smith's side recording a sensational 7-2 win over Jurgen Klopp's side.

Ollie Watkins opened the scoring for the home side in the 4th minute, before netting twice again in the 22nd and the 39th minute. The Villa forward netted what was a perfect hattrick in the first half of the game. Mohamed Salah scored a brace for the Reds but it merely proved to be a consolation.

John McGinn's strike deflected off Virgil van Dijk to make it four for the home side, before Ross Barkley scored his first goal for the new team. Jack Grealish then hit a second half brace to make it 7-2 on the night, as the defending champions conceded seven goals for the first time in Premier League history.

Twitter, as you would expect, didn't hold back in trolling the Premier League champions after what was one of the biggest upsets of this campaign, and quite possibly, one of the biggest we have ever witnessed.

Here are the best tweets:

Poor Adrian, literally!
