Gary Lineker says La Liga is stronger than the Premier League, with Real Madrid's 3-0 win over Liverpool providing the proof.

England's top-flight has styled itself as the best league in the world, however the humbling of Liverpool at Anfield suggested a gulf in quality between the teams from the two divisions is appearing.

Liverpool finished second in the Premier League last season but after a decent first 10 minutes, they were outclassed by their Spanish opponents in every department at Anfield with Cristiano Ronaldo and a Karim Benzema putting the visitors three goals ahead by half-time.

That led Lineker to tweet the following...



The quality of Real Madrid and Barcelona is nothing new, however Atletico Madrid appear to have joined them judging by their La Liga win and appearance in the Champions League final last season. And that's not all, Lineker pointed out...



Lineker experienced both leagues during his playing career, enjoying a stint at Barcelona as well as spells at Tottenham, Leicester and Everton.
