In the WSL player of the month category, Arsenal’s Emily Fox is in competition with five other players.

A new signing for the Gunners, Fox made her debut in a 5-1 win against Watford in the Adobe Women’s FA Cup and contributed to Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Liverpool by providing an assist for Vivianne Miedema’s opening goal.

Fox faces competition from Laia Aleixandri (Manchester City), Vivianne Asseyi (West Ham United), Janice Cayman (Leicester City), Lauren James (Chelsea), and Khadija Shaw (Manchester City) for the Player of the Month accolade.

Vivianne Miedema completes the list following her shortlist for the goal of the month award.

Miedema’s goal in the 2-0 win over Liverpool is among the top-six strikes in the WSL for January 2024.

Player of the month nominee Emily Fox found Vivianne Miedema with a pass and was afforded the time and space to set herself and strike the ball over the top of Rachael Laws to put the Arsenal ahead.

The other nominees for the award are Janice Cayman v Everton, Grace Clinton v West Ham United, Taylor Hinds v Manchester City, Lauren James v Brighton & Hove Albion and Lauren James v Manchester United.

Voting for the WSL January awards closes at 10 am on Monday, February 5.
