Emile Heskey played a great game on saturday.
His sharp runs down the line caused havok in the sunderland defence.
He has potential to be a liverpool great,he's got the skill but he lacks the experience.He fails to spot gaps or jump on mistakes.
I think with a bit of experience he could be a major force for Liverpool
