This week, Daniel Sturridge made a public plea to be played up front by Liverpool, rather than out wide. Today, as Jurgen Klopp's team took on Tottenham in the early kick off, the England striker found himself on the bench.
Whether the two are linked is unclear, but Sturridge is unlikely to be happy to have started just one of Liverpool's first three Premier League fixtures.
Perhaps that is why Sky Sports' footage at full time showing Sturridge holding his hand over his mouth as he spoke to Spurs' Danny Rose has led to so much speculation on social media.

The England duo engaged in a lengthy chat after the 1-1 draw had come to an end, and Sturridge was clearly keen not to let anyone see exactly what was being discussed.
Cue the theories...
Some people quickly came to the conclusion that the striker was venting his frustration at Jurgen Klopp's decision not to give him more game time...
With a transfer to Spurs in the pipeline before deadline day also a potential topic of discussion...
Other Liverpool fans looked at it with a more glass half full attitude, and are hoping Sturridge might have just been doing a little transfer recruiting of his own, what with James Milner being the Merseyside club's starting left back and everything...
Given Sturridge's current situation at Liverpool, the secret conversation on the White Hart Lane pitch was always going to cause debate amongst the Anfield faithful.
Having seen Firminho start up top against Spurs, and Divock Origi get the nod to come off the bench ahead of him, the five minute cameo he was given at the end of the game isn't likely to have put him in a great mood when he caught up with Rose at the full time whistle.
We will likely never know exactly what was said between the pair this afternoon. However, one thing Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker is sure of is Sturridge's ability to be Liverpool's number one striker if fit and given the chance.
