Stoke City striker Peter Crouch has said that even though his former club at Tottenham are an extremely great side, Stoke City deserved to win in the latest meeting between the two clubs.
Peter Crouch was at the forefront of the numerous good things Stoke city did in the match against Tottenham. It finally brought to an end the impressive run Harry Redknapp’s men have achieved in the Premier League for more than two months now. The club has put together a string of seven wins together in a row, which has helped them rise to the fourth position in the table.
However, they lost their impressive run in the match against Stoke city at the Britannia Stadium. The Britannia Stadium has always been very tough for visiting teams and it once again proved to be the case for Tottenham as well.
Former Tottenham striker Peter Crouch was influential for Stoke city, and the England striker did not fail to appease his former fans despite moving to a new club. He said that even though Stoke city managed a 2-1 win, the fact that Tottenham are a great side remains intact. The result also helped Stoke city to eliminate any fears of a relegation just before the crucial Christmas fixtures.
“Obviously they are going to come at you, they’re a top class side and you’re going to be under the cosh and everyone’s got to put a shift in. That’s what we did; we defended right from the front. Everyone was working as hard as they possibly could and you can’t take that result away from us, I thought we deserved it,” Peter Crouch said in an interview given to Skysports after the match. The goal scored by Peter Crouch is his first against Tottenham since leaving the club in the summer.
