Liverpool star Andy Robertson has jokingly told Curtis Jones to “get your hands off me” following Saturday’s win at Wolves. The left-back played an instrumental role as Jurgen Klopp’s side momentarily went top of the Premier League table.
Liverpool fell behind early at Molineux thanks to a Hwang Hee-chan strike. The Reds could have easily been further behind before half-time but for wasteful finishing from the hosts.
Cody Gakpo equalised for a rejuvenated Liverpool 10 minutes into the second half. They had to wait until the 85th minute to go into the lead, though, with Robertson coming up with a rare goal.
Jones clearly enjoyed the Scot’s strike and joined in with the celebrations. Pictures showed Jones holding Robertson around the neck as he shouted with joy.

But Robertson since shared the image on his Instagram story and joked that he wasn’t happy with Jones’ actions. He captioned the image: “Get your hands off me now”, accompanied by two crying with laughter emojis and a red heart emoji.
It was Jones’ 100th appearance for Liverpool in all competitions. He helped see out a 3-1 win, with a late own goal from Hugo Bueno sealing the three points.
Only Manchester City have more points than Liverpool five games into the season. Klopp had to rebuild his midfield with four summer signings and was without Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold at the weekend.
Robertson is excited by what he has seen from the new recruits and younger talent in the squad. He believes things will only get better once some experienced stars return from injury and suspension.

He told TNT Sports: “It’s a new start. We’ve got a lot of new players, kind of a new way of playing and things like that. So I think we just feel free.
“We’ve got good, exciting young players that sometimes you could probably see that in the first half where it was time to just put the foot on the ball and we were still maybe trying to force it and things like that. But then second half, they just came out, played with no fear and we made really good substitutions.
“Darwin [Nunez] caused problems, Harvey [Elliott] caused problems and Luis Diaz comes on at half-time. So, we’ve got a strong squad, we’ve still got players obviously missing with Trent and Thiago and things like that.
“They weren’t in the squad today so we can only get stronger. But if we keep everyone fit, we believe that we’ve got a squad that can compete, and we need to keep on showing that.”
