Enjoy the SheBelieves Cup? Find out which stars you can watch in the Barclay's FA WSL

You can watch England's Jordan Nobbs play her club football week-in week-out for Arsenal too

England may not have got the results they were seeking out at the SheBelieves Cup, but there's no question that Phil Neville has some of the world's best players in his ranks. 

And many of those stars who were showcasing their abilities in the USA this week play right here in the Barclays FA Women's Super League week-in week-out and the season is just reaching its climax. 

The title-race is by no means decided yet, as Manchester City currently sit top of the pile, just a point ahead of Chelsea and four points ahead of reigning champions Arsenal, who both have a game in hand.

With the season scheduled to get back underway on Sunday 22 March, there will also be a raft of Lionesses stars in action this weekend as the Women's FA Cup returns for the quarter-finals. 

England head coach Phil Neville himself admitted that the biggest positive to take from their trip to the USA was the individual performances of some of his players. 

And with that in mind, here's a reminder of some of the Lionesses you can feast your eyes on for the remainder of the season and beyond. 

Jordan Nobbs

The 27-year-old has long been touted as one of the best players of her generation and proved that again at the SheBelieves Cup, most notably against Spain, creating a bundle of chances for her team-mates to score. 

Nobbs has been an Arsenal player for almost a decade now, helping them stock the trophy cabinet full along the way. 

The midfielder cruelly missed out on the the World Cup last year but looks to have recovered now and is back in the form that has won her so many fans over the years. 

Leah Williamson

A firm fan favourite and Nobbs' partner in crime at Arsenal, we saw the 22-year-old's full range of versatility at the SheBelieves as she was used in a midfield role against Spain. 

A Gunner since the age of nine, Williamson spent a few seasons establishing herself for both club and country but is now one of the first names on the teamsheet for both.

Bethany England 

The Chelsea striker has been a revelation this season, scoring 14 goals in 15 league games so far and fans have been crying out to see her in an England shirt.

Unfortunately she couldn't grab a goal against Japan and missed out on the Spain game altogether but if Chelsea are going to win the title this season there's no doubt she will be right in the thick of it. 

Chloe Kelly

Another Lioness who has been bang in form for her club is the Evertonian sticking away more goals than any other midfielder in the competition so far. 

The 22-year-old was introduced from the bench in all three of England's games in the States and Neville picked her out as one of the players he was most impressed with on the camp.

The Manchester City contingency

No less than eight players included in Neville's squad for the competition came from Manchester City's ranks, but the one who may have stood out the most was Lauren Hemp

The 19-year-old has experience well beyond her years and was actually the youngest player selected for the competition and went on to start the first two games. 

Goalkeeper Ellie Roebuck and midfielders Keira Walsh and Georgia Stanway also boast youth and enough quality to stay at the top for many years to come. 

And of course the Citizens also have two of the country's most experienced and accomplished players in their ranks in England captain Steph Houghton and her deputy Jill Scott.

The next in line

It's not just the senior squad that is packed full of talent either and the WU21s recently put together back-to-back victories over France without conceding a goal. 

The likes of Tottenham Hotspur striker Rianna Dean and Liverpool forward Niamh Charles are just two of a host of up and coming stars that you can track the progress of.
