Eight Barcelona and six Chelsea players made the UEFA’s technical observers all-star squad from the 2020/21 UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Of last season’s 23, only six players were picked again by the technical team of Corinne Diacre, Brent Hills, Jarmo Matikainen, Anna Signeul, Monika Staab and Jorge Vilda.

No midfielders from last year made the cut, no-one from Lyon, while 11 who selected for the first time.

Other than Spain with seven players and Germany with five, no nation had more than one representative.

Pernille Harder is involved for the fifth season in succession and is one off Dzsenifer Marozsán’s streak of six nominations, a run which ended this term.
