7: Sam Kerr
Last year’s winner drops this season after embarking on a new challenge with FA WSL champions Chelsea. Leaving behind the NWSL where she dominated the scoring charts, Kerr’s start to life in England was hit by the COVID-19 pandemic just four games into her new chapter, where she scored with a towering header against London rivals Arsenal. On the international stage, Kerr hit four goals for Australia in Olympic qualifying and since Chelsea’s return to action has taken on a more creative role, and as of November no player had created more chances in the FA WSL this season than Kerr. While she will have been disappointed to miss chances to score, Kerr has found the net three times in the FA WSL this season, the joint best with the club and looks to be adapting to her slightly different role Emma Hayes has given her.
