VIDEO: Swansea fans are furious after Jonjo Shelvey appears to give up during Oxford loss

What do you do when you’re about to be knocked out of the FA Cup by a team three divisions below you?

If you’re Jonjo Shelvey, apparently you just stand there and watch it happen.

The Swansea midfielder caught the eye of viewers as he showed no desire to get on the ball with his team trailing Oxford United 3-2 in stoppage time of their FA Cup third round tie.

The England international simply watched as Oxford attempted to move the ball around just outside the Swansea box with just under three minutes remaining in the game.

Unsurprisingly, fans didn’t enjoy seeing one of their players taking some time off during a game.
