Liverpool players were rightly celebrating their huge win over Manchester City on Sunday night, with Andy Robertson in the mood for some banter with his team-mates.
The Reds opened up an eight point lead at the top of the Premier League with their 3-1 win over City at Anfield, and a nine point lead over the champions.
Goals from Fabinho, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane gave Jurgen Klopp’s side the three points, but Robertson reminded everyone of the dangers of Liverpool scoring when Roberto Firmino is on the pitch.

The left-back provided a superb assist for Liverpool’s second goal, headed home by Salah after just 13 minutes.
It was the Scotland captain’s fourth assist of the season, and given how regularly he provides goals for his team-mates, he messaged the Egyptian: ‘Don’t worry @MoSalah, I’ll find you.’
Trent Alexander-Arnold failed to register an assist in the contest, so fell one behind Robertson in their annual competition to score the most assists for the season.
The two full-backs are an incredible source of creativity for the league leaders, and the England international was also in celebratory mood on Twitter.

Robertson told Sky Sports after the game: ‘It’s a massive win against our closest rivals last year.
‘They beat us to the league, this year it looks like it’s going to be the same, there’s other teams around us, we’ve got to be wary of all of them, but to play a big game like this at home and to get that result is massive for us.’
Alexander-Arnold added: ‘We’re on a good run of form, obviously still unbeaten which is what we want to do.
‘We picked up a lot of points last season and it obviously wasn’t enough, so we know we’re going to have to get in and around the same kind of numbers to hopefully come away with a bit of silverware.
‘It’s early doors and we’ve still got a long way to go.’
