Domestic: 14 (2)

2020
UEFA Women's Champions League: 3 appearances (0 goals)
Domestic: 18 (3)
France: 4 (0)
Total: 25 (3)

There are few more complete, astute and hard-working midfielders in women's football than Henry, and she was crucial to Lyon's latest successes, even if injury in the UEFA Women's Champions League quarter-finals ruled her out of the rest of the August tournament – and despite victories in the semis and final, her influence was missed by OL.

Sara Björk Gunnarsdóttir (Wolfsburg/Lyon & Iceland)

2020
UEFA Women's Champions League: 5 appearances (1 goal)
Domestic: 14 (3)
Iceland: 7 (2)
Total: 26 (6)

A key midfield component in another Wolfsburg title win, Gunnarsdóttir switched to Lyon in July and the next month aided her new club to UEFA Women's Champions League final victory against her former side with a late clinching goal in the 3-1 win. It was Gunnarsdóttir who took over Henry's role in the finals after her club-mate's injury and showed her worth in a year when she steered her nation to UEFA Women's EURO 2022 and was voted Iceland's sportsperson of 2020.

Daniëlle van de Donk (Arsenal & Netherlands)

2020
UEFA Women's Champions League: 1 appearance (0 goals)
Domestic: 23 (3)
Netherlands: 6 (3)
Total: 30 (6)

Van de Donk's all-round midfield ability is fully utilised by Arsenal, where she is used in both attacking and defensive roles, chipping in with crucial assists as well as sweeping up to make sure the Gunners' other creative talents have freedom to move forward. Also remained at the heart of the Netherlands' game as the reigning champions booked a UEFA Women's EURO 2022 spot in style.

Delphine Cascarino (Lyon & France)

2020
UEFA Women's Champions League: 5 appearances (0 goals)
Domestic: 19 (2)
France: 7 (1)
Total: 31 (3)

The pacy right-winger was at her devastating best in August's UEFA Women's Champions League tournament, recording the fastest two sprints among other achievements, and was named Player of the Match in Lyon's final win against Wolfsburg, setting up the first two goals in the 3-1 victory. She has continued to set up goal after goal in the French league to end a year when long-held promise was truly fulfilled.

Pernille Harder (Wolfsburg/Chelsea & Denmark)

2020
UEFA Women's Champions League: 5 appearances (5 goals)
Domestic: 23 (13)

Also helped Denmark reach UEFA Women's EURO 2022 in impressive fashion.
