Five Blues named in women's top 100

The 100 best female footballers in the world for 2018 have been named, and Chelsea Women are well represented with five of our players included in the list.

The Guardian newspaper's list, in association with The Offside Rule Podcast, has been put together by a panel of 72 judges from around the world who have had their say on the players to have stood out over the course of 2018.

Among the experts to have voted are ex-Arsenal and England forward Kelly Smith, former USA internationals Tiffeny Milbrett and Kathryn Markgraf, as well as leading coaches such as such as Mark Parsons (Portland Thorns), Olivier Echouafni (Paris Saint Germain), Joe Montemurro (Arsenal) and Laura Harvey (Utah Royals).

Below you can see which Chelsea Women players have made the top 100, and the positions they have been named in.
