Liverpool moved back to the top of the Premier League but they were unable to maintain their perfect start after being held to a 2-2 draw by Swansea City.

It was a strange night for former Liverpool man Jonjo Shelvey who played a part in all four goals. Twice his mistakes would be pounced upon but a goal and an assist made it memorable day for the former Charlton man.

Swansea made the perfect start when just two minutes in Shelvey would open the scoring, finally taking the opportunity at the third time of asking before Liverpool levelled matters just 90 seconds later.

Once again Shelvey was involved but this time in a negative fashion as he failed to spot Daniel Sturridge and his back pass was intercepted by the Liverpool man who scored for the fourth successive league game.

Another Shelvey mistake would lead to Victor Moses scoring on his Liverpool debut before Michu grabbed an equaliser with a clever first time finish that left Simon Mignolet completely helpless.

Liverpool had kept three consecutive clean sheets in the league but they were undone after just two minutes when Shelvey mishit his first time shot, before skipping past Mamadou Sakho and eventually curling the ball home with his left foot after a good block from Martin Skrtel.

The former Liverpool midfielder went from ecstasy to agony just over a minute later when he had acres of time but his pass back to Michel Vorm could only find Sturridge who calmly slotted the ball home.

Both sides enjoyed spells of possession but it was Liverpool took the lead when Shelvey looked to spray a raking ball wide but it was latched upon by debutant Moses.

The Chelsea loanee would carry the ball forward before using a clever dummy run by Sturridge to cut inside onto his right foot and drill his shot into the near post past a helpless Vorm.

Wilfried Bony thought he would have a chance to equalise when Mignolet could only parry a shot but Martin Skrtel produced a superb last ditch tackle to deny the powerful striker.

Swansea would come out firing in the second half and had plenty of opportunities to draw level but were consitently denied by the superb Mignolet.

The Belgian would would produce a string of impressive saves before Shelvey was once again involved as he darted forward before turning his header into the path of Michu who took his shot first time to steer the ball home.

Liverpool would struggle once Philippe Coutinho was forced off because of an injury and Swansea piled forward in order to try and find a late winner.

Shelvey would drill a free kick straight at Mignolet and Liverpool were able to hang on in order to maintain their unbeaten run to the start of the season and return to the top of the Premier League table.
