Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has become a hot topic in the world of football, not as a top goal-scorer or as a fantastic playmaker, but as a troll. The ox has become the topic of fun since he joined Liverpool from Arsenal.
On the transfer deadline day, Oxlade-Chamberlain signed a five-year contract with Arsenal’s Premier League rivals Liverpool for a £35 million fee just after a few days of Liverpool’s thrashing of Arsenal when the Gunners lost 4-0 to Liverpool.
Arsenal fans were very disappointed at that time as their team lost two back-to-back premier league matches ( Stoke City 1-0 Arsenal and Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal ) and also Chamberlain was sold to a rival club on the deadline day. But now they are very happy as Arsenal is back in form again and Chamberlain is struggling to make an impact at Anfield.
Liverpool was in a great form and Arsenal was in a disappointing form before Chamberlain’s transfer. But since the midfielder’s move to Anfield things have got reversed and it seems like all the bad luck of the Gunners has gone out to Liverpool with the departure of Ox from the Emirates.
Since the signing of Chamberlain, Arsenal has won 6 games out of 7, whereas Liverpool has won only 1 out of their 7 games.
ARSENAL’S LAST 7 GAMES: WWDWWW
LIVERPOOL’S LAST 7 GAMES: LDDLWDD
Out of those 7 games, one was a Carabao Cup game for Liverpool, which they lost 0-2 against Leicester City and got eliminated from the competition in the first round they played. Some Liverpool fans think that Chamberlain is cursed and has brought bad luck with him.
Is Liverpool really playing bad or is it ‘THE OX EFFECT‘ ?????
