The 1998-99 season was Liverpool's 107th season of football since they were established. This season saw the start of the joint management between Roy Evans and Gerard Houllier, until Evans left in November to leave Houllier as the sole manager. The season was largely mediocre, as Liverpool achieved a seventh place finish, and were knocked out of all cup competitions relatively early. Michael Owen and Robbie Fowler were in hot scoring form, tallying 41 goals between them.
