Your WSL nominees for December are…
Norway international Boe Risa shone as Manchester United navigated a difficult away win against a strong Brighton side, marking the game with her first goal since moving to England in the summer and going close on a number of other occasions.
She was equally impressive in a ‘number ten’ role in a thrashing of Aston Villa a week later, setting up the opening goal in the 5-0 rout.
Tottenham ended the calendar year third in the WSL and in one of the Champions League places thanks to successive December wins, with Jessica Naz playing a significant role in each.
It started when she assisted the decisive goal in a 2-1 comeback win over Aston Villa, before a sublime top corner finish made the difference in a narrow victory against Everton.
Reading beat Chelsea in the WSL for the first time ever thanks to a goal from Deanne Rose, who is fast establishing herself as one of the signings of the season.
It took a monumental defensive effort from the Royals to keep Chelsea at bay, but to claim a historic victory it needed something more and Rose provided that. The Canadian drove at the heart of the defence, leaving opponents in her wake, and fired home after a neat one-two.
Alessia Russo continued her impressive form into December, with the 22-year-old England starlet thriving at Manchester United this season now that she is fully fit after an injury-hit 2020/21.
Russo didn’t add to her personal WSL goal tally in December but played an instrumental role as an attacking focal point as a ‘number nine’ for her team. She was able to bring others into the game and provided assists in the back-to-back wins over Brighton and Aston Villa.
Ella Toone finished 2021 in style by scoring two well-taken goals in Manchester United’s thrashing of Aston Villa, breaking the deadlock and also capping things off with the fifth of the day. She could even have had a hat-trick later in the game.
She also played 90 minutes of the win against Brighton and continued to be a leading attacking threat for her team, having stepped up her role this season.
Tottenham veteran Rachel Williams finished December with a goal and assist to her name in the WSL, having made crucial contributions to her team’s perfect month.
Her winning goal as Spurs came from behind to beat Aston Villa was the height of penalty area composure, taking her time to pick her spot, while she also fed the ball to the previously mentioned Naz to score the decisive goal against Everton.
