The Newcastle midfielder played the full 90 minutes as his side drew 2-2 with Manchester City at St James’ Park.
And he played a big part in the draw, scoring a wonderful late equaliser from the edge of the box.
Shelvey spent three years as a player at Liverpool earlier in his career, scoring seven goals in 69 appearances.
He left the club in 2013 as he was out of Brendan Rodgers’ plans and has since went on to appear for Swansea and now Newcastle.
Some may think he’s finally got the hero status he would have wanted from the Liverpool fans after today’s goal.
But Shelvey probably already earned that when he told Sir Alex Ferguson where to go during a game between Liverpool and Manchester United back in 2012.
Shelvey had just been sent off in the game and was walking off the pitch when he gave Ferguson both barrels.
