After several fantastic seasons with Liverpool Fowler's career was marred by a knee ligament injury that kept him out for most of the [[1997-98 season]]. This injury kept him out of the 1998 World Cup as well, and led to the emergence of [[Michael Owen]] in the Liverpool first team.

Because of then manager [[Gerard Houllier]] favouring the strike partnership of Michael Owen and [[Emile Heskey]], Fowler's playing time began to suffer. Although he still made important appearances such as the [[2001 UEFA Super Cup Final]] 3-2 win against Bayern Munich, he was still linked with a move away from Anfield. On 29 November 2001 Fowler made an £11,000,000 switch to Leeds United.
