Liverpool's attack 'immense' but defence a concern - Emile Heskey

Former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey says that the Merseyside club have the attacking firepower to win this season's Premier League title, but he has genuine concerns about their defensive frailties.

Going into the international break, Liverpool hold a one-point lead at the top of the table from Chelsea, with eight wins and only one defeat in 11 games.

Heskey, who won five major trophies during four years at the Reds, including the 2001 UEFA Cup, believes that the current squad are as good as the Luis Suarez-inspired side of 2013-14 who finished a close second behind Manchester City.
