The Anfield club are eight points adrift of the leaders Arsenal but they have a chance to close that gap today as they face the Gunners in the lunchtime kick off.
A win would be a real stamp of authority from Liverpool who are impressing with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge leading the line.
Heskey is adamant that if they can get the best out of that strikeforce then there is no reason that they can’t compete with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City for the title and not just settle for fourth spot.
“They can stamp their authority [against Arsenal] and show they have got a chance of not only doing something good this season but next season as well,” Heskey told talkSPORT.
“I think they can do something special. I see the manager has ruled them out of winning the title this year but they can push them right to the wire and show their intent in this game.
“He’s playing it down but if you go team by team I think Liverpool have got one of the strongest teams out there and with the likes of Suarez and Sturridge up front you’ve always got an opportunity.”
