Greenwood nominated for PFA Fans' POTM

Alex Greenwood has been nominated for February’s PFA Vertu Motors Fans’ Player of the Month.

The defender, who tops City's 2021/22 appearance list having featured in every single game, has been one of our stars of the season.

Although injuries have meant she has lined up alongside a number of defensive partners throughout the campaign, her consistency, determination and leadership have shone through, while she also poses an attacking threat from set-pieces.

A summer signing from Olympique Lyonnais in 2020, Greenwood made her 50th appearance for the Club in January this year and scored her first goal in the Continental Cup victory over Leicester in September.

Last month, she helped Gareth Taylor's side to three wins of four in all competitions with three clean sheets, to earn progression in the Women's FA Cup and Conti Cups and claim memorable Derby victories over her former Club Manchester United.

Continuing her fine form, she then played her part in March's Conti Cup Final success, as City fought back from a goal down to triumph 3-1 against Chelsea and clinch our fourth success in the competition.

In a shortlist heavily dominated by defensive players, Greenwood is named alongside Tottenham Hotspur's Ashleigh Neville, Chelsea duo Jess Carter and Millie Bright, and Leicester City's Ashleigh Plumptre and Jemma Purfield.

Cast your vote on the 90min.com website. Voting will close on Friday 11 March at midnight with the winners announced in the week of Tuesday 15 March.

Good luck, Al!
