Swansea City 2 Liverpool 2
JONJO Shelvey took centre stage as Swansea City drew 2-2 with Liverpool at the Liberty.
The midfielder scored a goal in the second minute against his former club, but just 99 seconds later played a loose backpass to gift Daniel Sturridge an equaliser.
Shelvey then gave away possession to Victor Moses, who put the visitors ahead at the interval.
He might have been sent off soon after the restart after appearing to raise his hands in an altercation with Lucus Leiva, but was only booked.
And to complete his contribution, the 21-year-old started a move that culminated in him heading down for Michu to sweep home an equaliser.
The game was only 88 seconds old when Jordan Henderson tried to head clear an Angel Rangel cross and the ball fell to Shelvey.
His effort was blocked by Martin Skrtel before the ball cannoned back and Shelvey was able to side-foot into the far corner.
But ecstasy turned to agony less than two minutes later as Shelvey played a careless backpass that Sturridge pounced on to sweep home.
Chances fell to both sides in the first half, though Liverpool looked the more dangerous and went in front eight minutes before the interval.
A sloppy Shelvey pass was intercepted by Moses, who raced in from halfway and stroked past Vorm and into the bottom corner.
Swansea were better in the second period and secured the draw they deserved.
With 64 minutes on the clock, the excellent Leon Britton lofted a ball forward that Shelvey headed into the path of Michu.
And last season’s top scorer made no mistake, slotting into the net for Swansea to claim a point.
