Swiss international forward Alisha Lehmann is into her second season at West Ham United after moving to Rush Green in summer 2018 ahead of the club’s debut campaign in the FA Women’s Super League.
The 21-year-old striker has played an important role in helping The Hammers establish themselves as a well-respected top flight side.
With the player now over half-way into her second campaign in East London, FA Women’s Super League Full-Time have been assessing Lehmann’s statistics to see how the forward has performed in her 21 months at West Ham United.
The 2018/2019 campaign saw Lehmann feature in all 20 league matches for The Hammers. The player ended the season as the club’s second-top scorer in the FA Women’s Super League behind Jane Ross with six goals, an average of 0.3 goals per game. She also contributed three assists.
This season has seen the striker start 11 of West Ham United’s 14 matches while she has twice made appearances off the bench. Lehmann has scored three goals in her 13 league outings, resulting in a lower goal average of 0.23 goals per game but her two assists in those appearances give the player a slightly higher assists per game rate than in 2018/2019.
In the domestic cups, Lehmann’s best memories have been made in the Women’s FA Cup. She netted in two of her side’s four ties on their way to Wembley last season, scoring the goal in the 1-1 semi-final draw at Reading, a tie which West Ham United went on win 4-3 on penalties. She has also found the back of the net on one occasion in each of The Hammers’ two FA Women’s Continental League Cup campaigns.
At such a young age, there is plenty more to come from Lehmann. She is a player who will undoubtedly become more dangerous in the opposition box, hopefully for the benefit of her current club.
