Jonjo Shelvey has enjoyed a new lease of life since he moved to Swansea from Liverpool in the summer.
The midfielder has impressed the Liberty Stadium faithful with a number of top performances and a few stunning goals to boot.
And he popped up again with a superb strike at his old stomping ground, right in front of the Kop, to pull Swansea back to 2-1 after Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson had given Liverpool a 2-0 lead early on.
But instead of celebrating his goal, Shelvey apologised to the Anfield faithful, while the home crowd gave him a standing ovation.
Nice touch from the Liverpool fans.
Shelvey’s goal applauded by the Kop. Might be quite nice if someone in a red shirt marked him.

GOAL! Shelvey scores a stunner and then apologises to the Kop.

That Shelvey applause was a throwback. Can anyone remember anything like that happening at another ground recently?

The Kop applauded Shelvey's great goal and he didn't celebrate. That's football #LFC

Shelvey: very nice & i applauded. But i don't know why. Lack of celebration is noble when the goal means something but that didn't at time.
