Fowler netted 14 times in 16 games for the Reds against Aston Villa, scoring in six of his first seven matches against them. In addition to his 1998 hat-trick, he hit doubles against Villa on three occasions, including the 1996 FA Cup semi-final. [via TransferMarkt]
Who is Liverpool's most important attacker?
Indeed, Aston Villa were his joint-most regular victims, scoring more often against them than any other club except Arsenal, against whom he also has 14 goals. [via TranserMarkt]
Upon seeing the footage of his Villa Park hat-trick in 1998, these Liverpool fans on Twitter were in full nostalgic mode about Fowler:
