In by far the most captivating Premier League match of the week, Swansea City nabbed a point against Liverpool at the Liberty Stadium on Monday night with former Red Jonjo Shelvey wearing the hat of both hero and villain as he was directly involved in all 4 goals on the night. Shelvey wasted no time getting in on the action as he opened the scoring after just 2 minutes courtesy of a bumbling run that was capped by the ex-Arsenal youth player finishing into the net of Simon Mignolet for an early Swansea advantage. It took all of 2 more minutes for Shelvey’s opener to be cancelled out though, with Daniel Sturridge capitalizing on a god-awful back pass/turnover by Shelvey to level the game after just 4 minutes of action. This game further seemed to slip away from Swansea come the 36th when Chelsea loanee Victor Moses bagged his first Liverpool goal from distance to give the Reds a bit of an undeserved lead before the half. Shelvey again was at the center of this goal as it was his misguided long ball that found Moses and started the Nigerian on his dash towards goal, which was undoubtedly aided by a bit of tame defending from Shelvey and his Swansea teammates. All hope was not gone though as the Liberty came alive one last time in the 64th minute as Michu pipped his first goal of the season to tie the match at 2 after being assisted by a nifty header from our favorite Lord Voldemort look-a-like. But despite some feverant chants of “Hyms and Arias” down the stretch, Swansea were unable to find a winner as both sides staggered away with a point from this highly entertaining affair, a point that sees Liverpool regain the top spot in the table.
