Kerr wins FWA Women's Footballer of the Year

Chelsea forward Sam Kerr has been crowned the Football Writers' Association Women's Footballer of the Year for 2021/22.

The Australia international has once again been the spearhead for Emma Hayes' side, with Fran Kirby and Pernille Harder in and out of the squad throughout the season with injuries.

She is the current top scorer in the Women's Super League with 18 goals, including the winner in Thursday's hard-fought 2-1 win against Tottenham.

What makes her goal haul all the more impressive is that she has not taken any penalties for Chelsea this season, with all of her goals coming from open play. Kerr also has four assists this season.

She has had the most shots on target in the WSL this season (37) and scored the most big chances (11), ranking second behind Arsenal's Vivianne Miedema for the number of shots (63).
