During the summer, David Ginola and Les Ferdinand were sold to Tottenham Hotspur, and in a pre-season friendly match Alan Shearer sustained a horrific ankle injury which would keep him out for half the season. Dalglish signed goal-keeper Shay Given, midfielder Temur Ketsbaia, striker John Barnes and be-wilderingly signed veteran striker Ian Rush, the club's eldest player signing aged 36.
The highlight of the 1997–98 season was to be the club's time in the Champions League, seeing them beat Barcelona 3–2, after a hat-trick from striker Tino Asprilla. The club's premier league form however began to suffer following Asprilla's departure from the club in January, and despite the return of Alan Shearer to the starting line-up, he was unable to recapture the form he had found under Keegan. The club reached the FA Cup final only to fall to a 2–0 defeat by Arsenal.
