39. Fran Kirby
Fran Kirby’s 2019 was far from an easy one as injuries threatened to overcome her during an up and down campaign. At times, Kirby showed how brilliant she can be but in the number 10 role for England she never looked as comfortable as she does in Chelsea’s free-flowing attack. Kirby still managed eight FA WSL goals in the second half of last season and two more in the cup but has been managed more through the new season as she looks to regain full fitness. She showed only flashes of her brilliance at the World Cup, but was in the right place at the right time against Sweden to get England back in the third-place play-off. Despite not starting every game of the new season, Kirby has three assists already, second only to Fara Williams.
