Jonjo Shelvey in Newcastle United kit

Newcastle United fans lambasted Jonjo Shelvey for making a hospital pass to Martin Dubravka from 20 yards inside Liverpool’s half during the 1-1 draw on Saturday.

It is hard to explain what went through Shelvey’s head at this exact point when he switched the play to a completely opposite direction and put his own keeper under intense pressure.

Liverpool got as close to scoring their second goal at Anfield with Sadio Mane almost capitalising on Shelvey’s brainfart moment.

Thankfully for the Magpies, the unexplainable manoeuvre from Shelvey did not have any adverse impact on the scoreline as Joe Willock rescued a point with an injury-time goal for the away side.

Check out the pass and the subsequent reaction from Newcastle fans below –
