Southampton forward Nathan Redmond believes his relationship with Ryan Bertrand is continuing to develop and grow as the games go by.

Redmond is flourishing in his role on the left side in a 4-2-3-1 system, scoring twice against Watford in the 4-3 victory.

And Redmond reserved praise for his teammate after helping Saints to back-to-back Premier League successes.

He said: “It’s important when you have a strong group of players around and with Ryan behind me.

“He’s always in my ear if I do something good or bad! To have someone strong like behind me is a good feeling and you know defensively you have a little bit less to do.

“We’re building a strong relationship and it’s showing.”
