'They don't pass us the ball much... they like shooting a lot!': Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain discusses the similarities between star men Mo Salah and Sadio Mane ahead of the Merseyside derbyAlex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Liverpool face rivals Everton on Wednesday nightMidfielder says Mo Salah and Sadio Mane don't pass much as they like to shootThe Ox has also discussed the complications of Ramadan for his two team-matesHe was speaking at the launch of Premier League and ECB's Roar! for Diversity

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has admitted that the main thing Liverpool team-mates Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have in common is their dislike of passing the ball.

The trio are likely to named in Jurgen Klopp's starting XI on Wednesday night as the Reds look to maintain their incredible unbeaten run against local rivals Everton.

And the Toffees can expect Salah and Mane to have plenty of efforts on goal in the 234th Merseyside derby if Oxlade-Chamberlain's comments are anything to go by.

'Something that Sadio and Mo have in common is that they don't pass us the ball much, that would be the main thing – they like shooting a lot!' the midfielder said at the launch of 'Roar! for Diversity', a new resource and competition for 7 to 11 year olds from the Premier League and the England and Wales Cricket Board.

Salah and Mane have been in superb form this season, scoring 14 Premier League goals between them to fire Klopp's men eight points clear at the top of the table. 

The Ox continued: 'They're both from Africa and they're both Muslims. 

'They're two players in our team that have different periods of the season when they have Ramadan which is a testing time for them because they don't get to eat and drink at the same time as the rest of the team.

'So we have to understand to try and help them and the coaching staff does that very well.' 

Speaking about the diversity in Liverpool's title-chasing squad  Oxlade-Chamberlain added: 'The most successful teams bring together players with individual skills and qualities to be able to achieve success as a group. The Liverpool dressing room is home to players from more than 20 countries. Everyone brings something different to the atmosphere on and off the pitch!

'The Premier League is for everyone. Using sport to inspire a generation of young fans to celebrate diversity is something I'm proud to be supporting.'


The Premier League and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) are partnering to use their reach and appeal to encourage primary school children across England and Wales to celebrate diversity.

The sporting organisations, united by a shared goal to encourage inclusion and inspire people to respect and value individual differences, have come together to create 'Roar! for Diversity' a curriculum-linked PSHE resource and competition for 7-11-year olds.

Available to download for free from the Premier League Primary Stars website and ECB's partner, Chance to Shine the Key Stage 2 resource will enable teachers to discuss with their class how diversity within a team helps to make it stronger. Pupils can then create an advert celebrating diversity which can be entered into a competition and can win match tickets or a school visit from the Premier League or Cricket World Cup trophies.

The Roar! For Diversity pack includes lesson plans and video resources featuring contributions from England cricketers Adil Rashid, Sophia Dunkley and Premier League match official Sian Massey-Ellis.

England cricket captain Eoin Morgan said: 'You just need to look our World Cup winning side from this summer to understand the strength that diversity brings to a group.

'We are a team from a range of different backgrounds and cultures. By working together, supporting each other and appreciating everyone's abilities and differences, we're definitely stronger together.'
