The FA Women’s Super League have selected six of the best goals and six of the best saves from the duration of the 2018/19 season and with three Blues in contention, we are calling upon fans to cast their votes.
Chelsea Women goalkeepers Carly Telford and Hedvig Lindahl have both been shortlisted, among four other WSL shot-stoppers for their outstanding saves this season.
Telford: Everton away (0-0) – Sunday 23 September
Telford made a spectacular save to deny Everton forward, Simone Magill who struck powerfully from the edge of the box.
Lindahl: Manchester City away (2-2) – Sunday 10 February
Lindahl pulled off a fine stop when she tipped Caroline Weir’s shot onto the post to ensure Manchester City’s two-goal advantage was not increased.
Meanwhile, Magdalena Eriksson has been nominated for Goal of the Season for her sublime overhead kick during our 1-0 victory over Liverpool.
Eriksson: Liverpool home (1-0) – Sunday 28 October
Blues centre-half, Magdalena Eriksson is one of six goalscorers who has been shortlisted by the WSL as a Goal of the Season candidate.
Eriksson’s superb goal against Liverpool at Kingmeadow came as a pleasant surprise as she is more known for her defending capabilities. Drew Spence headed Erin Cuthbert’s cross down into the danger zone and Eriksson took one touch with her right foot to pop the ball up before executing an overhead kick which flew past Fran Kitching and into the top corner.
On scoring the match-winner, Eriksson said: ‘It was a very special goal – I think I have a patent on that type of goal, as I haven’t really seen one like that before! It felt kind of surreal and, in fact, it still does.
‘I do go up for corners and try to get some goals for the team, but I don’t score too many. In that moment, I don’t really know what happened, it was just something that came to me and I tried it and it came off.’
