3: Fernando Torres | Liverpool to Chelsea

At No.3 we have an inclusion that really doesn't need much explaining. Once heralded as perhaps the most naturally lethal striker of his generation, Fernando Torres' form hasn't so much petered out as completely and utterly deserted him.

The Spain international was once the most feared hitman in the Premier League, and practically single handedly drove Liverpool's charge to return to their former glory. Fast forward just a few years and his career has stagnated considerably. Since his big money move to Stamford Bridge in 2011 the 30-year-old has failed to find his feet, and has managed a pitiful return with regards to his goals to games ratio.

For some reason the former Atletico Madrid star just hasn't managed to cut the mustard in west London, despite the best efforts of several top class managers, and a whole host of world-class supporting acts. Will he regret taking a gamble and leaving Liverpool? Maybe not.

That being said, he'll most certainly rue the impact moving to Chelsea has had on his personal ability.
