Swansea's Jonjo Shelvey

Jonjo Shelvey was involved in all four goals as a mazy game of the English Premier League between Swansea and Liverpool ended 2-2.

Shelvey, who left for Swansea from Liverpool this summer, put the Welsh side in the lead after just 87 seconds, only for the midfielder to then make two crucial mistakes which led to goals for Liverpool from Daniel Sturridge and Victor Moses.

However, Shelvey made up for those mistakes by laying on the equalizer for Michu as Liverpool's 100 percent record, the only one previously remaining in the Premier League, came to an end. The Reds do go back on top, though, one point clear of Arsenal and Tottenham.

"I thought for the first 65 minutes we were very good," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said.

"Probably no-one knows the stadium as well as I do here and what the crowd are like when the momentum gets up -- so we showed incredible character to get back into the game so early after they had scored.

"We had done some work on the counter-attack and flooding forward, because we knew there were going to be spells in the game that we wouldn't have the ball. We exploited that quite well for the second goal.

"Until 65 minutes, we had good control. We're disappointed with the second goal that we gave away; obviously then the momentum changes into Swansea's hands for the last 20-25 minutes.

"Then we've got to show another side, especially when you're away from home, of character and resilience. And we did that. Make no mistakes, we've got a lot of improvements still to make.

"But I thought we showed enough evidence tonight that our game is getting better and we have a character in the team that is going to allow us to pick up a lot of results. So, in the end, it's a point gained for us."

Rodgers was forced to make a change in defence with Daniel Agger ruled out injured, paving the way for deadline day signing Mamadou Sakho.

However, Swansea got off to the perfect start, with Shelvey easing past Sakho before curling a left-footer into the back of the net - the first goal Liverpool have conceded this season in the Premier League after three straight 1-0 defeats.

Shelvey, though, quickly turned hero to villain by making a calamitous back pass which led to Sturridge now grabbing his customary Liverpool goal, before another horrible pass allowed Victor Moses to score his debut goal for the Reds, nine minutes before halftime.

However, Shelvey was on hand just past the hour mark to assist for Michu, who netted his first goal of the season.

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup felt Shelvey did well to respond after two big mistakes. "When you do that, you go from heaven to hell in a couple of minutes after scoring a goal in a very important game for you after two minutes," Laudrup told Sky Sports. "Then you give away a goal to the opponent, then another one when the ball is lost.

"But you have to remember that he is only 21 years old and I said to him 'come on, we have 45 more minutes, you have to learn from this, you have to pull yourself together'.

"I think he did great and I think after a second half like this, and we only talk about him, he will come out a lot stronger from this and I think his reaction to the first half in the second half was excellent."
