U.S. Fans’ Top Picks This 2020/21 Season

1. Top 3 Men’s Players This Season

Edouard Mendy and N’Golo Kante were your runners up for American fans’ picks for the season. The top men’s player is no surprise either. Mason Mount, the club’s Player of the Year recipient, got the most votes in the poll, as well. Here’s their stats from Premier League action this season:

  • Edouard Mendy: 31 appearances and game starts, 2745 minutes played, 16 clean sheets, 57 saves, 70% shots saved
  • N’Golo Kante: 30 appearances, 24 game starts, 2145 minutes played, 2 assists, 20 chances created, 86% pass accuracy
  • Mason Mount: 36 appearances, 32 game starts, 2892 minutes played, 6 goals, 5 assists, 82 chances created, 86% pass accuracy

2. Top 3 Women’s Players This Season

Fans followed suit and voted a goalkeeper Ann-Katrin Berger as the runner up on the women’s squad. U.S. supporters tied up voting for their top women’s player of the 2020-21 season with both Fran Kirby (Women’s Player of the Year) and Sam Kerr receiving the honor. Here’s their stats from Women’s Super League action this season:

  • Ann-Katrin Berger: 17 appearances and game starts, 1530 minutes played, 12 clean sheets, 24 saves, 77% shots saved

  • Sam Kerr: 22 appearances, 19 game starts, 1527 minutes played, 21 goals, 71 total shots, 30% conversion rate

3. Top 3 Chelsea Men’s Matches This Season

Most Chelsea fans will agree that their top match of the season was the Champions League final. To be crowned the Kings of Europe is an honor and something supporters will cherish for years to come. But let’s not forget the other two matches fans voted to the top. It was a bit of sweet retribution for Chelsea when they beat Leicester City in a Premier League match just days after the devastating FA Cup defeat. The other favorite set us on the road to victory with a 0–4 win over Sevilla for the Champions League Group E back in December. That was certainly a match to remember!

4. Top 3 Chelsea Women’s Matches This Season

For the women’s team, with so many great matches and excellent results, it might have been a bit more difficult to pick a favorite match. The win against Everton Women in the Women’s FA Cup Round 5, as well as the massive 5–0 victory over Reading Women, both in May, were voted as runners up. However, the overwhelming favorite match was Women’s Champions League Semi-finals 2nd Leg against FC Bayern Munich Ladies. Chelsea Women certainly put on a show!
