Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s Liverpool Debut Was Somehow Not As Bad As His Arsenal Bow

during the Premier League match between Manchester City and Liverpool at Etihad Stadium on September 9, 2017 in Manchester, England.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain just doesn’t like debuts…

Liverpool had a day to forget at the Etihad today, as Manchester City galloped to a 5-0 victory and to the summit of the Premier League.

Sadio Mane’s red card added to the hosts’ momentum as they routed the Reds.

It was a day that Jurgen Klopp won’t want to remember in a hurry. The same could also be said for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The midfielder joined the Merseyside club for a £35million fee.

To most, a 5-0 loss on your debut could be considered a nightmare start at a new club.

However, surprisingly this is an improvement to Oxlade-Chamberlain’s bow at Arsenal.

The England international joined Arsenal in 2011 from Southampton. What was his debut? Yep, you guessed it…

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s first Arsenal appearance came from the bench against Manchester United on August 28, 2011, as the Gunners fell to the Red Devils on a scoreline of 8-2.

So technically, this is an improvement, right?

For the record, his first appearance for Southampton was a lot more positive. He came off the bench in May 2010 in the final match of the season against Southend United, which the Saints won 5-0. Perhaps he just used all of his luck too early…
