Chelsea FC Women defender Magda Eriksson is one of six players who have been nominated for the PFA Bristol Street Motors Fans’ Player of the Year award.
The 25-year-old Swedish international full-back has been in excellent form for The Blues as they reached the semi-finals of three different cup competitions as well as recording a third place finish in the FA Women’s Super League.
It has been revealed that Eriksson is on the shortlist to receive the PFA Bristol Street Motors Fans’ Player of the Year award. The defender has been nominated alongside Bristol City goalkeeper Sophie Baggaley, Manchester City pair Georgia Stanway and Nikita Parris and Arsenal duo Danielle van de Donk and Vivianne Miedema for the accolade.
Eriksson joined Chelsea from Swedish Damallsvenskan club Linkopings in 2017 and the player has gone on to make a huge impression during her time at Kingsmeadow. The defender won the FA Women’s Super League and SSE Women’s FA Cup in her first season with Chelsea while she has helped the club to back-to-back semi-final appearances in the UEFA Women’s Champions League.
The defender has endured a cruel end to the season. She scored an own goal as Chelsea bowed out of the SSE Women’s FA Cup at the semi-final stage at Manchester City while she also bundled the ball into her own net against Lyon in the semi-final first leg of their UEFA Women’s Champions League tie.
Despite those disappointments, Eriksson would be a worth winner of the PFA Bristol Street Motors Fans’ Player of the Year award.
