Nigeria’s Victor Moses scored a goal in his debut appearance for Liverpool last night in their 2-2 draw against Swansea City lifting his team to top of the English Premier League table.
Paying in front of a home ground, Swansea City drew the first blood even before most of the twenty outfield players could get a feel of the round leather. Their first goal came in the second minute of the match through Jonjo Shelvey.
Two minutes later, however, Liverpool equalised with a superb effort from Daniel Sturridge who has also been responsible for all of Liverpool’s other goals this season before last night.
Sturridge had another opportunity in the 15th minute when he fired a shot from Gerrard over the bar.
Shelvey, scorer of Swansea’s goal also wasted an opportunity two minutes after Sturridge’s miss.
Moses’ goal came in the 36th minute of the match after what appeared like a Swansea dominated few minutes and the first half ended with Liverpool leading.
The second half resumed and the Swansea captain, Ashley Williams bagged a yellow card 4 minutes later for a rough tackle on Coutinho, which resulted into a free kick, which Gerrard couldn’t convert into a goal only a consolatory corner that was quickly cleared by Swansea.
A mild scuffle between Lucas Leiva and Jonjo Shelvey earned both players a yellow card each.
A string of stoppages slowed the game down considerably before Michu equalised for Swansea in the 64th minute with an assist from Shelvey.
Victor Moses was substituted for Sterling in the 81st minute of the match in an attempt to secure a win for Liverpool when it appeared that the match was going Swansea’s way.
The single point earned by Liverpool was secured when the referee blew the final whistle after five extra minutes of stoppage time.
