Liverpool played their way to a point away at Swansea on Monday night, in a game where the headlines were dominated by Jonjo Shelvey.
Shelvey scored early against his former club, before gifting them two goals through mistakes, and providing an assist for the Swans second half equaliser.
It overshadowed a solid debut for Liverpool's newest attacking player, Victor Moses, signed on loan from Chelsea.
Moses grabbed the game's third goal, giving Liverpool a 2-1 lead before the break, marking a memorable debut for the winger, going onto complete the 81 minutes.
The goal came from Moses' only shot, one of just 33 touches of the ball he had. Only Daniel Sturridge (31) got less touches than the debutant in Liverpool's starting line-up.
Moses also recorded the lowest pass completion ratio of any Liverpool midfielder or forward (75 per cent) - but crucially he did provide more key passes leading to goalscoring opportunities than any other player (three) with the exception of Steven Gerrard who made the same amount.
Moses did not make a single pass in the defensive third of the pitch, completing 11 of 12 passes in the middle of the park, but more wasteful in the final third completing four of eight. Encouraging news was that both of Moses two crosses found a teammate.
The winger was the league's best dribbler statistically in his final season at Wigan, and his three successful dribbles were the highest of any Liverpool man.
Moses added to his overall performance by making two successful tackles and one interception as he sought to make a mark on his debut and contribute to the team.
Overall it was pretty promising, with the goal the crucial statistic to take away, but what did Liverpool fans think of his display? Here are a selection of varied comments from Twitter...
No one seems to be mentioning that ones we get Moses up to speed we have a wonderful winger in our team #LFC— Liverpool Nigeria (@EplAfrica) September 16, 2013
At least we stay top of the league tonight. Impressed with Moses & I'm sure Sakho will come good. Sturridge is a supreme finisher #LFC— graham nash (@Calgary_nash) September 16, 2013
Moses was almost like some kind of powerful biblical figure today #LFC— Jack Shingler (@jackshingler) September 16, 2013
Well chuffed Moses scored on his debut, really like him! Yet to be convinced by Aspas and Wisdom made my stomach turn. #LFC— Kyle McGowan (@Kylebhoi) September 16, 2013
Moses looked really good too, faded a bit down the stretch but needs games to get fit, and we’ll all end up wishing he wasn’t a loan. #LFC— Matthew Cook (@mdc4matt) September 16, 2013
Quite a bad debut for Sakho, and a really good One by Moses. #LFC— Haroon Anjum (@HaHaHaroon) September 16, 2013
I saw more from Moses in 70 minutes today than I did in 2 years from Downing #LFC— Muyiwa (@fran6ix02) September 16, 2013
What did you think of Moses' debut?
