29: Danielle van de Donk

A rise of eight places shows how good the often underappreciated Van de Donk has been at times in 2018. Voted Arsenal’s player of the year for 2017-18, she has started the new season with seven goals already – including a hat-trick against West Ham – and a recent streak of four in as many games. Van de Donk has remained a regular for her country under Sarina Wiegman and played an important role in the Netherlands securing their place at next summer’s World Cup.

Joe Montemurro, Arsenal manager:

“Danielle is a really creative, talented footballer who finds important spaces for us in the attacking third and she’s showing her qualities with the goals she’s scoring this season.”
