Reds Share Spoils With Swansea

Jonjo Shelvey was at the centre of almost all of the action as he helped and hindered Swansea in their 2-2 draw with Liverpool on Monday night.

The midfielder was sold to the Swans by the Reds this summer and he took just two minutes to show his intentions as he curled a finish home off the fingertips of Simon Mignolet, after his miscued volley at the edge of the area allowed him to burst past his defender.

His emotions turned from jubilation to humiliation two minutes later though as he slipped a perfect pass to Daniel Sturridge who rifled in the equaliser.

Sturridge then lashed a shot wide of the near post before the England striker was denied brilliantly by a save from Michel Vorm in the 25th minute.

Shelvey's night then took another turn for the worse in the 36th minute when he blasted a pass into the feet of Victor Moses who raced at goal and fired home with aplomb.

Wilfried Bony was denied what looked a certain equaliser two minutes later by a brilliant challenge from Martin Skrtel on the line.

Andre Wisdom then worked Vorm after the break before Shelvey created the equaliser by knocking the ball down to Michu and running into the area to create the space for his teammate to fire home.

Swansea looked the most likely to snatch a winner but no goals arrived as Brendan Rodgers dropped his first points of the season in the draw with his former club. It was not too much of problem for the Reds though, as they kept their unbeaten start intact and moved back to the top of the league table.
