The —96 Liverpool F. They already possessed some of the country's finest young talent in the shape of prolific striker Robbie Fowler and talented midfielders Steve McManaman and Jamie Redknapp. Fowler would end the season as the second highest goalscorer in the country, behind Alan Shearer , while McManaman was the leading goal assists maker in the country, with 25 assists in the Premier League alone. Collymore too was rich on form from the beginning: he found the net on his debut at Liverpool won 1—0 at Sheffield Wednesday on the opening day of the Premier League season.

Can you name the Liverpool XI from the draw with Arsenal in ? - Planet Football
Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League after an Anfield classic against Arsenal - but Andrey Arshavin's remarkable four-goal haul delivered a serious blow to their title ambitions. Rafael Benitez will no doubt praise Liverpool's spirit and ambition, as he did after a similar result in the Champions League at Stamford Bridge last week, but defensive weaknesses fatally undermined a vibrant attacking display. Liverpool's point puts them ahead of Manchester United on goal difference but Sir Alex Ferguson's reigning champions now have a potentially crucial two games in hand. Arsenal's much-maligned keeper Lukasz Fabianski was Liverpool's tormentor in the first half, but he showed signs of strain after the break as the home side threw caution to the wind backed by a wall of sound from The Kop. Arshavin provided a lethal spearhead for Arsene Wenger's side, who were under siege for long periods but demonstrated a stunning ability to strike on the counter. The Russian put Arsenal ahead from Cesc Fabregas' cross nine minutes before the interval, but Fernando Torres and Yossi Benayoun, with a brave far post header, struck early in the second half to give Liverpool the advantage. But as Liverpool tried to capitalise on their supremacy, the lavishly-gifted Arshavin struck twice in the space of three minutes midway through the second half.
