Gary Neville feels English clubs have gone 'back to square one' in Europe

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville believes English club sides have gone ‘back to square one’ in Europe.

Posting on Twitter the morning after Liverpool and Tottenham were eliminated from the Europa League, Neville said: "We're way off in Europe. Thought we were improving but sadly not. Back to square one!”

And when asked by a supporter if he felt the Premier League remained the best in the world, Neville said: “On quality no. Maybe on entertainment.”

Liverpool were beaten on penalties by Besiktas and Spurs went out 3-1 on aggregate against Fiorentina but Everton did progress, beating Young Boys 7-2 over two legs.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal were beaten 3-1 at home by Monaco in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie and 24 hours prior to that, Manchester City lost 2-1 at the Etihad to Barcelona in a game dominated by the Spanish side.

Those results mean Chelsea, who drew the first leg of their tie against PSG 1-1 in France, are likely to be the only English club left in the quarter-finals of Europe’s elite competition.
