Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replied brilliantly when asked: Is Mo Salah selfish?

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says Mohamed Salah isn't a selfish player - because he's a goal scorer

There has been a lot of debate in recent weeks centring about whether Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah is 'selfish'.

The conversation was started during the Reds' 3-0 win away at Burnley, when Sadio Mane voiced his frustration at the Egyptian not putting him in through on goal.

Mane was free in the box, but Salah instead dribbled into traffic, resulting in the chance being wasted.

After he was subbed, Mane made it very clear on the bench that he was far from happy with his teammate's actions.

Any rumours of the two actually disliking each other over the incident have been quickly and obviously dismissed.

But the question still remains: is Salah selfish?

Well, if you want to win back-to-back Premier League Golden Boots, you certainly can't spend all your time on the pitch teeing up your strike partners.

And that's exactly the point fellow Liverpool teammate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has made about the Egyptian.

When asked to finish the sentence "Mohamed Salah isn't selfish because...", Oxlade-Chamberlain replied, per Liverpool Echo: "Isn't selfish? Are you winding me up?

"The guy don't pass to us. Are you mad? Ask Sadio."

The England international then added: "No, Mo Salah isn't selfish because he's a goalscorer. He's gotta do that.

"We can't expect him to pass us the ball all the time and him to score loads of goals. The way he plays wins us games, so he's got to do what he's got to do.

"He scores, we win the game. I'm happy. Mo, do what you want!"

Salah has become the PL's best goal scorer

Unless you're Lionel Messi, you cannot score half the goals and then create the other half.

At times, Salah will look selfish on the surface, but that's only because he has that goal scoring drive, which makes him the Premier League's top predator in front of goal.
