Tottenham striker Peter Crouch is hoping to continue his partnership with Jermain Defoe for Sunday’s clash at Chelsea.

Crouch made his first Premier League start for Spurs in last week’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester United and is focused on holding down a place in Harry Redknapp’s side.

“I was pleased to start [against United] and felt I was causing problems,” Crouch told the Tottenham Journal. “I hit the bar – it was a little bit too high for me – and I was pleased to get 90 minutes. It was my first in the Premier League, and I’m hoping I can continue to play and form a partnership with Jermain [Defoe].

“Vidic is a tough customer, and I had a real battle with him. I thought a couple of times the free-kicks didn’t go my way when I couldn’t see a foul. I enjoyed the battle. Out there against two of the world’s best centre-halves, I thought I held my own.

“Of course it will be the same at Chelsea. We’ve got fantastic defenders in the Premier League, that’s what you expect, but I’m confident in my ability and I can always do well.

  1. Sorry Crouch you are just not good enough, you lose us matches. You would be better keeping your mouth shut. You and Robbie had so many missed chances I cannot believe you should be allowed on the bench. You are paid to score goals & not keep telling us how good you can do it with Defoe. Spurs fans should get an apology for what we had to watch last Saturday. Please take a trip to Specsavers the goal is between the uprights.
    Crouch, if you was good at your profession as a striker would you have been such a team traveller. Spurs, Southampton, Liverpool, Portsmouth and now Spurs. Hopefully it’s back to Southampton at Christmas.
