Your WSL nominees for February are...


1. Millie Bright (Chelsea)

Appearances: 2
Clean sheets: 2

Chelsea kept back-to-back WSL clean sheets against Manchester City and Arsenal in February, taking four points from those two huge clashes against their long-time rivals.

Millie Bright played an important role in getting those results, partnering the much less experienced Aniek Nouwen at the back and filling her role as one of the leaders in the Blues' squad.

2. Jess Carter (Chelsea)

Jess Carter had been operating very successfully as a centre-back as part of a three all season before February, yet transitioned seamlessly into a right-back role in a more traditional defensive unit.

Not only was she defensively sound in successive shutouts against Arsenal and Manchester City, she provided the assist for Chelsea's winning goal in the latter.

3. Alex Greenwood (Man City)

Alex Greenwood was arguably the best player on the pitch when Manchester City won their WSL derby clash against Manchester United, performing such a crucial role playing the ball out from the back.

The England international deserves extra credit because injuries in the City squad have forced her to play with rotating partners for much of the campaign, including both February games.

4. Ashleigh Neville (Tottenham)

Ashleigh Neville proved to be a surprise goalscoring hero in Tottenham's return to form in February following a tough January, scoring her first two WSL goals of the season in successive wins.

Neville got a goal and assist in just 38 minutes on the pitch as Spurs crushed Brighton to begin the month. She then netted the second-half opener against Birmingham, while her team also didn't concede in either.

5. Ashleigh Plumptre (Leicester)

Leicester pulled away from relegation danger in February and had centre-back Ashleigh Plumptre to thank for her significant role in back-to-back wins - the Foxes carried on their previous from December and January.

Plumptre and Leicester beat Birmingham in a huge six-pointer in February, before she scored and helped record a clean sheet in a big follow-up win against West Ham, who have usually been hard to beat this season.

6. Jemma Purfield (Leicester)

Jemma Purfield also played a big role in February as Leicester secured back-to-back wins for the first time as a WSL club. Her energy on the left flank saw her directly contribute to goals in both games.

The former Liverpool and Bristol City player scored what proved to be the winner against Birmingham in that vital victory for the Foxes, and then assisted the killer second goal against West Ham a week later.
