Michael Owen

Michael Owen stood out from the off. The goal on his debut for Liverpool at the age of 17 became a trademark finish, beating the Wimbledon defence for speed before a clinical strike.

This pace and deadly eye for goal helped Owen finish top scorer for the Merseyside club in every season between 1997/98 and 2003/04, claiming the Golden Boot twice.  

A spell at Manchester United earned him his first title and he remains one of only 10 players with 150 or more Premier League goals.

What they said

"I think he was a fantastic player. He was clever, a very intelligent person. I remember the person as well as the player. He was extremely fast and quick with good speed and could withstand the challenges." – Gerard Houllier

"I think he will go down in our history in England as one of the greatest goalscorers and strikers we've had." – Frank Lampard

"He was a baby-faced assassin. His finishing was amazing for a young man. He had that coolness in the penalty area. Some players get anxious but he seemed to get calmer and calmer." – Glenn Hoddle
