2: Vivianne Miedema
Vivianne Miedema comes in at her best ever ranking after another year which can be described as nothing else but superb. Miedema is simply a goal-scoring machine, but also an assist machine. Not only did she sweep the golden boot in the FA WSL last season, but also recorded the most assists, which is extraordinary for someone so well-known for her scoring skills. Her performance early in the year which saw her score six and assist four in an 11-1 Arsenal win over Bristol City was the single-handed best individual performance the league has ever seen, and she’s shown no signs of slowing down. The fact she has 10 goals in just seven league games this season should be seen as ridiculously impressive, but the truth is it has just become standard now for Miedema. Her movement, touch and sixth sense to be in the right place at the right time makes what she does look easy, but it’s anything but, an incredible footballer.
