Shelvey happy to play anywhere for Liverpool

Jonjo Shelvey is happy to play anywhere for Liverpool.

He led the line against Young Boys at Anfield in the Europa League, played down the left flank against Southampton on Saturday and has operated in both attacking and defensive central-midfield positions for the Reds.

And Shelvey explained to the official Liverpool monthly magazine: "If you play me at left-back, right-back or even in goal I'd be happy because it's Liverpool. I'd play anywhere for this club.

"I've always been able to get into the box. I should've scored a few more in the last few weeks too. I've got into some good positions but not put the ball in the net. But I think the goals will come.

"I want to stay here for a long time and to be a regular in the team. To do that I know the manager has to be able to rely on me.

"If you look at lads like Stevie and Carra, they did it when they were my age - they lived up to their billing. I'm trying to do the same. When Liverpool made an offer, accepting it was the easiest choice I have ever had."
