Fowler was a delicious finisher, a classic poacher and the perfect No.9. It’s little wonder Fowler was christened ‘God’ by the Kop – few players have shown such natural instinct and ruthlessness in front of goal.
Fowler burst on to the Premier League scene in 1993, scored 25 goals in 1994-1995 and 28 the following season. That includes his famous four minute 33 second hat-trick against Arsenal in front of an adoring Anfield crowd.

But he reached top form a year later, scoring 31 times in 33 league matches as Liverpool nearly clinched the league in the 2013-14 season under Brendan Rodgers.
The PFA Player of the Year award and European Golden Shoe were his, as was a move to Barcelona in 2014.
