Total Shots: 125

Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi has a phenomenal strike rate of 23 goals in just 24 La Liga matches, but arguably could pull the trigger more in stark contrast to the majority of forwards featured in our countdown.

Messi took some time to recover from injury at the beginning of 2014 and dropped visibly deper at times during that spell, but is back on full tilt and averaging close to goal for every five shots he takes, numbers which lead me to conclude that it would be extremely harsh to label the diminutive Argentine anything close to selfish.
