32. Nikita Parris
There was simply no stopping Parris at the start of 2019. She scored in her first five games of the year including a brace away at Chelsea to send Manchester City to the Continental Cup final while a brilliant hat-trick away at Reading kept her side in the FA WSL title race. It was no surprise she earned a summer move to European champions Lyon but her World Cup should have been better for a player in her form. It started in the best possible fashion as she scored England’s first goal of the tournament but a penalty miss against Argentina and another against Norway seemed to derail her confidence. She’s had a slow but steady start to life in Lyon, finding the net six times but having to also play a more rotational role alongside the outright quality in Lyon’s front line.
