Reds back on top despite draw

5:29 am on 18 September 2013

Liverpool's one hundred percent Premier League football record has ended but Tuesday morning's 2-2 draw at Swansea City still returns the Reds to the top of the English table.

A win would have meant the best start for Liverpool since they were last league champions, way back in 1990.

Swansea midfielder Johnjo Shelvey had one of the most eventful starts to any game against his old side, and he had a hand in all four goals in the end.

In the first three minutes Shelvey scored a cracking goal - then gave one away with a poor back pass that Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge latched onto to equalise.

Shelvey also gave the ball away for Liverpool's second goal before half-time, to Chelsea loanee and Reds debutant Victor Moses.

Then he atoned with a headed assist for Michu's goal.

Shelvey says he showed a bit of character to keep getting on the ball, though he feels he gave Liverpool a draw - but it was a great game to play in.
