Peter Crouch is looking forward to Sunday’s clash between Chelsea and Tottenham to test just how much potential Harry Redknapp’s side have to break into the top four this season.
Following Saturday’s first Premier League defeat of the season at the hands of Manchester United, Spurs face a tough trip to Stamford Bridge.
“It’s another chance to see quite how close [to the top teams] we are against Chelsea, which will be another very difficult game. If we can get a result there people will start talking us up again,” Crouch told the Tottenham Journal.
“If you sit off these teams, like we did in the second half on Saturday, they’ll punish you, and Chelsea are the same. We’ve got to keep pressing them at every opportunity, force them into errors and not let them play.
“That’s what we’ve been fantastic at this season, working hard. With the quality we’ve got we can always play, but we’ve got to make sure we work hard and match them in that area.”
