There have sadly been a number of players this season unfortunate not to be among the end of season awards due to injuries.
Tobin Heath and Leah Galton were both exceptional for Man Utd before injuries ruled them for lengthy spells, and one has to wonder how the Red Devils' season would have panned out had neither struck such poor luck.
Man City captain Steph Houghton has had one of her best seasons in recent memory, but missed the last two months of the campaign, while another injury to a key centre-back, Rikki Sevecke, had a bigger impact on Everton and their ambitions to secure a European place than many realise.
For Lauren Hemp, the City and England winger, her injury came at the opposite end of the campaign, with her first league game not coming until December. Her form since Christmas has been nothing short of outstanding.
Those certainly worth a mention that fortunately avoided spells on the sidelines like those above include Arsenal's Caitlin Foord, who has been excellent ever since her move to the Gunners last January; Ella Toone, the Man Utd starlet who won her first England cap this season due to her sublime form; and Maya Le Tissier, Brighton's versatile teenage defender who ranked seventh in this year's NXGN list.
Arguably no position in any WSL team of the season will be more competitive than in between the sticks though. Ann-Katrin Berger made huge saves as Chelsea won the title, Hannah Hampton has had another superb campaign for Birmingham, while Everton's Sandy MacIver is another whose efforts this past year have been rewarded with an England appearance.
