32: Daniëlle van de Donk
Daniëlle van de Donk drops slightly this year but was still a key part of Arsenal’s midfield and a regular starter for her national team. The midfielder popped up with goals and assists throughout the year, the most important of which pre-pandemic coming in the Continental Cup semi-final against Manchester City. She was also a creative influence, ending last season high up in the assist rankings for the FA WSL while with the Netherlands she has continued to contribute consistently, scoring three times in recent Euro 2021 qualifiers as her country booked their spot in England with the hope of defending their title. All energy and not afraid to get stuck in, Van de Donk has sometimes been deployed in a more defensive role, but her qualities still predominantly suit an attacking game.
