3: Lucy Bronze
England’s Lucy Bronze once again comes home in the top three, but drops one place from last year. Bronze returned to the FA WSL with former club Manchester City, but not before sealing another treble and a third UEFA Champions League title out of three with Lyon. While some perhaps think Bronze is no longer hitting the ridiculously high standards she set the bar with a few years ago, her attacking stats say differently. Her agility and athleticism make her the ideal full-back and no one in her position recorded more assists throughout 2020, while she’s remained a more than solid defender. She’s had to adapt to a new way of playing since returning home, but her marauding run to score against Bristol City was more than familiar to those who would have watched her in the league pre-Lyon move. Named BBC’s Women’s Footballer of the Year, Bronze definitely remains one of the very best.
