Le Tissier started every one of our 22 league outings in her first season as a Red, after a summer move from Brighton & Hove Albion, and became a mainstay in the heart of our defence. Her United career began in dream fashion, as she scored a debut double against Reading back in September.
Batlle, who returned to Barcelona with our best wishes this summer, is also in the Team of the Year’s back four after her third and final Reds campaign. A World Cup winner with Spain earlier this month, Ona was also extremely effective when marauding forward in attack. Our former no.2 supplied a team-high nine assists across the WSL season, bettered only by Chelsea’s Guro Reiten, and is named in the PFA XI for the second time.
No club had more than three players selected, although local rivals Manchester City have the same number in the team listed below.
Congratulations to Mary, Maya and Ona on their selection in the PFA side and their tremendous terms in United colours.
