If you thought that Liverpool is going under tough moment then expect Alex Chamberlain's woe to double the misery of his current club. The only solace that the former Southampton player has at this time earning a huge salary. The English versatile player has played in seven out of the eight games for the two teams witnessing only a single victory.

After seeing his former side, Arsenal in a shock defeat at the hands of Stoke City and the 4-0 thumping at the hands of Liverpool the former gunner joined Liverpool only to suffer 5-0 rout at the hands of Manchester City. It means that Alex oversaw the two side that he featured for conceding a total number of ten goals without a reply in just three matches.

Could it be a curse?

The former Saint should count himself luck in a way as he's among the few players who've played for their childhood dream teams. As a child, Chamberlain was an ardent Arsenal fan, and he realized his dream after joining the North Londoners from Southampton. Upon signing for Arsenal, many pundits expected that he would remain loyal and play for the side until the end of his career, but that wasn't the case. Could his woes emanate from quitting his dream team?

Before putting his signature for The Reds, the former Gunner was on the verge of joining the West Londoners, Chelsea only to change his mind upon seeing the enticing wage that his current club was offering. The indecision seems to be working against him as he was courting two rivals of Arsenal while unsure of the side to join.

Chamberlain has joined fellow Southampton graduates including; Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana, and Sadio Mane. Currently, all the former Saints can't feature for Liverpool except Alex Chamberlain.
