A performance that have seen Pep Guardiola's City side already eight points behind Liverpool ahead of the second international break.
"In the long run, City's poor start could have already cost them the league, but that will only happen if Liverpool take their foot off the gas," Heskey was quoted as saying as bwin.
“Liverpool have given themselves a great start, so even if they hit a rough patch, it will only see City getting closer to them, rather than overtaking them.
"The key for Liverpool is to focus on themselves, rather than how far ahead they are from anyone else.
"At any given stage, City can crank the pressure up and go unbeaten for games on end, so Liverpool need to make sure they don't get hesitant at any stage,” warned Heskey, who as quick to reveal the Reds secret so far.
"Liverpool have already proven that they can win ugly, which should see them finally lift the Premier League. Last season they only lost one game, but they drew too much.
"This season, they've already won a few scrappy games that they would have drawn last season,” Heskey submitted.
