Jonjo Shelvey’s first return to Liverpool since his summer transfer to Swansea was memorable.
After Liverpool had taken an early two goal lead through excellent goals from Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson, Shelvey pulled the Swans back into the game in style.
The ex-Liverpool man curled a wonderful first time golazo into the far top corner in front of the Kop, and the England U21 man refused to celebrate against his old team.
That non-celebration brought Shelvey plenty of fans both at Anfield and further afield.
Read the best tweets as Swansea’s Jonjo Shelvey was applauded for not celebrating his golazo against Liverpool.
GOAL! Shelvey scores a stunner and then apologises to the Kop.

I'm guessing that a Shelvey #mutedcelebration involves some kind of monocle.

Jonjo Shelvey nets his fifth goal of the season, and has been directly involved in 24% of Swansea's PL goals this season.

Shelvey did celebrate but in the manner of a county cricketer reaching 50. A raised arm and a thumbs-up to a team-mate.

Shelvey’s goal applauded by the Kop. Might be quite nice if someone in a red shirt marked him.
