Liverpool go top with point at Swansea

Liverpool reclaimed top spot in the Premier League after drawing 2-2 with Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium yesterday evening in a game dominated by former Reds midfielder Jonjo Shelvey.

The England international, who moved to the Swans during the summer transfer window for around £6m, opened the scoring after just 87 seconds, but his slack backpass gave Daniel Sturridge the opportunity to get his fourth goal in four league games minutes later.

Shelvey was again at fault in the lead up to Victor Moses debut goal on 36 minutes, before the former Charlton Athletic man assisted Michu’s second-half equaliser.

The result ends the Reds 100 per cent start to the season, but sees them leapfrog Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur back in to first place.

The club will now turn their attention to Saturday’s visit of Southampton – the final game of Luis Suarez’s ten-match suspension.

Philippe Coutinho was forced to withdraw from yesterday evenings game with a shoulder injury, and may miss the match against his former manager Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

The Brazilian played under the Saints boss sixteen times whilst on loan in the second half of the 2011/12 campaign and scored five goals before returning to Inter Milan.
