By the dawn of the new year, Liverpool's last hope of silverware was in the FA Cup. They had an easy start in the competition, travelling to Vale Park for a third round tie with Division One strugglers Port Vale, coming away 3-0 winners. However, their hopes of glory ended in the fourth round when they surrendered a 1-0 lead in the dying minutes to lose 2-1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Their dismal league form that month saw them draw 0-0 at Arsenal and lose 2-1 at Coventry City, though they had some wry consolation in the form of a 7-1 hammering of strugglers Southampton at Anfield, in a match that saw Robbie Fowler score his 100th Premiership goal. They were now sixth in the league, now being led by Chelsea, who were eight points ahead of them with a game in hand.
Spring brought a similar pattern of results, and by 21 April they had slid down to 10th place in the league with even their UEFA Cup qualification hopes looking slim. They needed a good run of results to even finish eighth - the lowest position they had finished in since their current spell as a top flight club began in 1962.
Wins over Blackburn Rovers and Tottenham Hotspur kept the Reds in contention for European qualification with three games to go, but a draw at home to Manchester United and a defeat at Sheffield Wednesday meant that a 3-0 home win over Wimbledon on the final day of the season wasn't enough for anything higher than seventh place - meaning that 1999-2000 would be Liverpool's first season in five years without European football.
