Champions League heartbreak aside, Chelsea were an absolute force to be reckoned with in women’s football this season, losing just once on our way to repeat WSL crown, while also adding the League Cup. Appropriately, the plaudits and the awards have been rolling in.

The latest along those lines is the PFA Women’s Players’ Player of the Year award, which may be an awkward title but is one of the most meaningful ones since they are voted on by peers. Three players key to Chelsea’s success make up half of the six nominees, and they include Fran Kirby, Sam Kerr, and goalkeeper Ann-Katrin Berger.

Players from Manchester City make up the other half of the group, via Chloe Kelly, Lauren Hemp, and Sam Mewis. The winner will be announced this Sunday.

We also have Chelsea presence in the PFA Women’s Player’s Young Player of the Year, with Niamh Charles getting nominated, alongside five others, including Chelsea-linked Lauren James (sister of Reece James).

The full list of nominees for the women’s PFA Women’s Players’ Player of the Year is as follows:

Ann-Katrin Berger – Chelsea
Chloe Kelly – Manchester City
Fran Kirby – Chelsea
Lauren Hemp – Manchester City
Sam Kerr – Chelsea
Sam Mewis – Manchester City

And the full list of nominees for the PFA Women’s Player’s Young Player of the Year is as follows:

Ebony Salmon – Bristol City
Ella Toone – Manchester United
Ellie Roebuck – Manchester City
Lauren Hemp – Manchester City
Lauren James – Manchester United
Niamh Charles – Chelsea

Good luck to all four Chelsea players!
