Debuts should not be disastrous but instead should be marked as dates to remember for any player donning a jersey for the new club.
We take a look at five of the worst Premier League debuts;
Joe Cole had moments to forget on his debut as he was sent off at Anfield when Liverpool faced Arsenal. Cole was shown a straight after a bad challenge on Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny.
Cole’s marching orders were the start of a fairly miserable time on Merseyside for the England international, who failed to find his form during an injury-hit spell with the Reds.
Silva joined Chelsea from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer and made his first appearance for the Blues against West Brom. On his debut, Chelsea suffered a 5-2 loss in the hands with Silva being sent off in the 29th minute for a foul on Callum Robinson.
However, since then, the Brazilian has become a key player for Chelsea and played a part as the Blues won the Champions League last season.
Evra signed for Manchester United from AS Monaco in 2006 and his first appearance for the Red Devils proved a difficult season.
The Frenchman made his debut in the Manchester derby and was subbed off by a furious Sir Alex Ferguson after the Red Devils found themselves trailing by two goals.
Ferdinand signed for Leeds United in 2000 from West Ham United for a record-breaking fee. He made his debut against Leicester City as Robbie Savage made changes to accommodate the new man.
Rio's debut ended in a defeat as his side conceding three goals inside 28 minutes.
