Emile Heskey believes Leicester are genuine Premier League title contenders and backed them to threaten Liverpool's crown.

Leicester have won six straight games in all competitions - having also beaten Manchester City 5-2 in September - after bouncing back from last season's final-day disappointment of missing out on the top four.

Liverpool's title defence has them a point behind the Foxes, top of the Premier League heading into the weekend, and Heskey expects Brendan Rodgers' side to last the course.

Even the manager is in a better place to understand the players in the long term.

Heskey moved to Anfield from Leicester in 2000 for £11million and scored 60 goals in 228 games for the Reds.The 42-year-old won two League Cups, the FA Cup and UEFA Cup in four years at Anfield.

'I played with a lot of the lads from the national team so I was lucky but it's energising,' said Heskey, who scored 46 goals for Leicester after starting his career at Filbert Street.

He's a fantastic player, he may not be all about goals but it's about movement, trickery, guile, playing balls in.
