Rebekah Stott – Melbourne City

Melbourne City hammered home their Premiership credentials in January and have a six point advantage over Western Sydney Wanderers in second – one of the biggest reasons for this is the presence of Rebekah Stott in the heart of defence.

Stott has commanded a water-tight City rearguard all season but the team’s defensive aptitude just gets better and better. The three-time Champions kept clean sheets in wins over Brisbane Roar, Canberra United and Newcastle Jets, Stott near-flawless in all.

When league action resumes for Rado Vidosic’s side on Thursday February 13, they will have gone over two months since conceding their last goal.

Emily van Egmond – Melbourne City 

The Westfield Matildas star is hitting peak form at a time where City look like Premiers elect. 

City’s most influential player with the ball, van Egmond has created a bucket load of chances and has frequently been a source of inspiration.

She notched a great 30-yard strike against Canberra on January 9 and found the net against Newcastle Jets on January 18.

Mallory Weber – Adelaide United

January was a month in which Mallory Weber was finally rewarded for her consistently impressive performances in an Adelaide United shirt. 

The American has been one of the league’s best international signings during 2019/20, turning in eye-catching display week in week out even despite the Lady Reds’ struggles. 

After helping Ivan Karlovic’s side get off the mark with a 2-2 draw against Perth Glory at the start of the month, Weber scored a double and turned in one of the showings of the season to shock Premiership contenders Western Sydney Wanderers 3-2 on January 25.

The reigning Premiers are coming to the boil, and so is their iconic number nine. 

Natasha Dowie fired home four goals in three Janunary wins over Newcastle Jets, Adelaide United and Canberra United to give Jeff Hopkins’ side pole position in the race for the Finals Series.
