‘Legend’ – These Liverpool fans hail Jonjo Shelvey after equaliser vs Man City

In the 87th minute of today’s Premier League clash between Newcastle and Manchester City, Jonjo Shelvey scored a stunning late equaliser for the Magpies to rescue a point and also dent the Sky Blues’ title hopes.

Shelvey fired a stunning first-time strike into the back of the net after a wonderfully worked free-kick routine.

Take a look at the England international’s crucial equaliser that’s written him into Anfield folklore here.

According to the Guardian, Liverpool signed Shelvey in a deal that was worth up to £3m over nine years ago.

Shelvey struggled to make an impact as a youngster after three years with the Reds and was eventually moved on to Swansea.

Here’s how some Liverpool supporters reacted to the midfielder’s crucial leveller:

Who would have thought that after almost a decade that Shelvey would come up with a moment that could potentially see a Premier League title for Liverpool.

The central-midfielder is getting back to his best under Steve Bruce’s guidance, at just 27 years old, there’s still plenty of time for the ace to firmly establish himself as a top Premier League midfielder.
