Swansea’s Jonjo Shelvey charged for elbow on Liverpool’s Emre Can


Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey could receive up to a four-match suspension after he was charged with violent conduct by the FA.

Jonjo allegedly elbowed Emre Can in the face during Swansea City’s defeat at his old club Liverpool on Monday night.

The 22-year-old has apologised for elbowing Liverpool midfielder Emre Can but rejected accusations that it was intentional.

“Just wanna say didn’t intentionally elbow Emre Can,” Shelvey tweeted.

“Was just trying to get my arm across to get round him and it’s come off as I’m trying to hurt another play and I can assure you that , that isn’t the case.

“And I had apologised to Emre Can for catching him.”

Can started his first Premier League game since Liverpool’s 2-1 loss against Chelsea last month.

The 20-year-old midfielder started in defence against Swansea.

Can has now made 11 appearances in all competitions for the Reds since joining from Bayer Leverkusen this summer.
