Emile Heskey

Emile Ivanhoe Heskey made his Premiership debut as a 17-year-old for Leicester City against QPR in March 1995. Leicester were relegated that spring but under the guidance of new manager, Martin O'Neill went straight back up to the top division. Heskey scored ten goals in 35 games in his first whole season in the Premier League in 1996/97 and boasted exactly the same stats the following season. Heskey's agent had already started to complain about Leicester's lack of ambition and predicted that his client would at best stay there until he was…

Kop Quote

Jamie Carragher welcomes Robbie Keane to Liverpool

"It's great to have Robbie Keane here. I'm probably delighted more than the rest of the lads because Robbie is one of the players who has caused me all kinds of problems down the years. He has this knack of getting goals against us but he also has a great allround game.

The potential of the partnership between Keane and Torres has got the fans excited and if they click together then we really will have a front two who are up there with the best. Robbie will always weigh in with 15 or 20 goals but he is a goal creator as well as being a goalscorer. He plays in that position just behind the main striker but the great thing about him is that he always comes up with his fair share of goals. He has been brilliant for Tottenham over the last few years. He's a really special player - and that's why the manager was ready to pay £20m for him. It's a lot of money, but we have bought real quality. The problem I've found trying to mark Robbie is that he has the ability to play in a variety of positions. One minute he is playing right up at the top of the attack and trying to get behind you. Then he drops deep to find space and you don't know whether to follow him. Defenders like to do as little thinking as possible but with Robbie you really have to be on your game because he can drag you all over the place. His partnership at Spurs with Berbatov has been one of the best in the League and we're hoping he can replicate that with Torres. On paper, it looks like the perfect partnership.

We've got Torres, trying to use his pace and his clever runs to get in behind defenders, while Robbie can drop deep to find space and pick teams apart with his passes. And what makes it even more dangerous is that Torres also has the ability to provide the service and Keane has the quality to get on the end of things. It's not the first time we've had top strikers in my time at the club. When we did the Treble we had Michael Owen, Emile Heskey and Robbie Fowler. I wouldn't want to insult them by saying Keane and Torres will be the best. But for a long time, Liverpool have not had anyone capable of filling the No7 shirt that means so much to this club. I don't like putting so much pressure on other Liverpool players but Robbie is definitely in the same mould as Keegan, Dalglish and Peter Beardsley."
