Heskey tips Suarez to make the difference against Manchester United

The Newcastle Jets new-boy has highlighted the Uruguay international as Liverpool's main threat to Sir Alex Ferguson's side, believing he will guide the Reds to victory on Sunday

Former Liverpool and England striker Emile Heskey believes Luis Suarez can fire his team to victory over Manchester United.

Brendan Rodgers’ side have made their worst start to a season since 1911 after accumulating just two points from their opening four games, but remain unbeaten at Anfield against their rivals since 2007.

And Heskey, who spent four-and-a-half years at Anfield, has tipped Suarez to eradicate his side's poor form guide his team to victory on Sunday.

“It’s difficult to go any other way than with Manchester United but with the likes of Luis Suarez, and fingers crossed he’s on his game, Liverpool have got a good chance,” he told talkSPORT.

“Over the years it’s been shown that Liverpool can pick themselves up for the big games like Manchester United, Chelsea and those sort of games."

Despite his underwhelming start to life at Anfield Rodgers is still the right man to helm the club and will turn the club’s form around, according to Heskey.

He added: "It has been a tough start for Brendan Rodgers but he’s stuck to his guns. He hasn’t got the players he would have liked to but hopefully some of those posts and crossbars can turn into goals.”
