Owen replaced the injured Robbie Fowler as Liverpool's first choice striker in 1997–98. He won the Premier League Golden Boot and was awarded the PFA Young Player of the Year award. Owen also finished in third place in the PFA Player of the Year voting behind Dennis Bergkamp and Tony Adams. Owen recorded many personal feats during the season and helped Liverpool challenge for the league championship but ultimately a run of bad form in February saw the club bowing out of the title race.
The Liverpool Echowrote that: "[Owen] has become Liverpool's most precious performer and, quite simply, their saviour." Owen signed a five-year contract with Liverpool worth £2.5million during the season. His £10,000-a-week deal made him the highest paid teenager in the history of British football. Owen was runners-up to Zinedine Zidane in the World Player of the Year award. He finished in fourth position in the FIFA World Player of the Year and European Player of the Year international awards.
