IAN LADYMAN: Pep Guardiola's decision to give career advice to the Southampton player on the field on Wednesday was followed by a statement from Redmond suggesting that, despite the Spaniard's 'intense and aggressive' behaviour, he had been happy to listen. Shrewd move, that. Never wise to upset a manager who one day may be in a position to make all your dreams come true.
IAN LADYMAN: They?did not play in the same team on Saturday as Jurgen Klopp rotated his squad in advance of another busy fortnight but it is clear that Sadio Mane and Mo Salah represent the future. Salah has been superb in his debut season and was magnificent in the second half against Chelsea.? Watching the Egyptian continually threaten the Chelsea defence, it was tempting to wonder just how good this Liverpool team could be if Klopp could correct obvious problems at the other end of the field.
