PFA Team of the Year: Chelsea and Man City dominate WSL

What is the team?

Ann-Katrin Berger (Chelsea), Katie McCabe (Arsenal), Leah Williamson (Arsenal), Magdalena Erikson (Chelsea), Maren Mjelde (Chelsea), Sam Mewis (Manchester City), Caroline Weir (Manchester City), Sam Kerr (Chelsea) )), Fran Kirby (Chelsea), Chloe Kelly (Manchester City), Lauren Hemp (Manchester City).

Is this the right selection?

Katie Whyatt (Women’s Football Correspondent): It sounds like a precise list and I can’t envision that there is much dissent – maybe only that Ji So-yun, a vital cog in the Chelsea machine, is missing.

Berger, Eriksson, Kerr and Kirby are obvious inclusions and rightly so given their exceptional form throughout the season.

The same goes for Mewis, Weir, Kelly and Hemp, who illuminated City with their invention and daring.

McCabe and Mjelde often don’t get the credit they deserve, so it’s satisfying to see them recognized here with Williamson crowning another solid personal campaign for Arsenal.

What about the Player of the Year awards?

Berger, Kelly, Kirby, Hemp, Kerr and Mewis have all been nominated for the PFA WSL Player of the Year award.

Ebony Salmon (Bristol City, now with Racing Louisville, NWSL), Ella Toone (Manchester United), Ellie Roebuck (Manchester City), Lauren James (Manchester United), Niamh Charles (Chelsea) and Hemp were also nominated for the WSL Young Player of the year award.

What about male awards?

Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City), Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City), Phil Foden (Manchester City) and Ruben Dias (Manchester City) have been nominated for the award of the year.

Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Declan Rice (West Ham), Mason Greenwood (Manchester United), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) and Foden are the nominees for the Young Player of the Year award.

When will the awards take place?

The PFA prizes will take place on Sunday June 6 and at 7:30 p.m. (BST).
