41: Ji So-yun
Ji’s consistency fluctuated at times during 2018 but her finer moments reminded people why she remains among the best technicians in the world. Having opened the year with a goal against Arsenal, she ended her season with two stunning efforts against Liverpool to save Chelsea’s unbeaten campaign – while she also scored their only goal in their Champions League semi-final against Wolfsburg. Five goals for South Korea at the Women’s Asian Games were her highlights on the international stage and they secured ther country’s spot at next summer’s World Cup.
Emma Hayes, Chelsea manager:
“Ji is one of the best number 10’s in the game and she has developed massively during her time at Chelsea. She is a fantastic character to have around the place and she is a Chelsea die hard!”
