The 2021/22 WSL season is now in the books, finished off with a dramatic and tense weekend of action that saw Chelsea secure the title ahead of Arsenal, Manchester City do enough to hold off Manchester United in the race for third and Birmingham sign off with a victory before starting a new chapter in the Women's Championship in the autumn.

For the final time this season, here are 90min's picks for WSL team of the week...

GK: Emily Ramsey (Birmingham): Despite relegation, she finished a stellar loan season with a clean sheet in a city derby against Aston Villa and made several saves to underpin the win.


CB: Molly Bartrip (Tottenham): The best of the Spurs back three as they wrapped up their best ever campaign with a win and clean sheet against Leicester.


CB: Louise Quinn (Birmingham): Arguably doesn't deserve to be going down after the season she has had. Put in another fine performance as the team repelled Villa.


CB: Alex Greenwood (Man City): Fitting that she scored her team's final goal of the season. Arguably now one of the best ball-playing centre-backs in Europe.


RM: Ashleigh Neville (Tottenham): Scored Spurs' only goal against Leicester from the more advanced role she has been introduced to at times this season.


CM: Erin Cuthbert (Chelsea): The Scot's energy and drive ensured that a Chelsea were not totally overrun by Manchester United in a tense first half. Scored the first equaliser too.


CM: Vivianne Miedema (Arsenal): Could the weekend have been her final game for Arsenal? If it was, it was the perfect way to bow out, pulling the creative strings and getting an assist.


LM: Guro Reiten (Chelsea): Recovered superbly well in the second half as the Blues eventually breezed past Manchester United. Scored the go-ahead goal that effectively secured the title.


RF: Beth Mead (Arsenal): Created numerous chances for the Gunners in their must-win final game, even if it wasn't quite enough for the trophy in the end.


ST: Sam Kerr (Chelsea): Her performance decided the season. Two stunning goals, the second arguably even better than the first, put the Blues back level and then eventually out of sight.


LF: Lauren Hemp (Man City): Scored another important goal to take her league tally into double figures, which set the ball rolling for a win that delivered Champions League football.
