Former Liverpool man Jonjo Shelvey had quite the opening three minutes when his new team, Swansea, took on the Reds at Liberty Stadium

First up, Shelvey put Swansea ahead with fine finish.

The home side's lead didn't last long, however. This time, Shelvey's work led to a goal at the other end, as Daniel Sturridge snaffled up his back-pass to equalise.

All of that inside the first five minutes, and he wasn't done yet. Before the half, Shelvey added a second Liverpool assist—this time playing in Victor Moses.

And then he set up Michu for Swansea's equaliser.

The game ended 2-2. You can't fault the man's entertainment value.
