Peter Crouch is unfazed by Spurs poor performance and subsequent defeat against Manchester United on Tuesday, believing it to be no more than a blip.

Crouch came on as a substitute for Robbie Keane, was frustrated as two Darron Gibson goals denied Spurs the chance to potentially make three Carling Cup finals on the bounce.

“It was a bit of a strange game. We started really well in teh first half-hour and if we’d have scored first, it might have been a very different game.

“But they got the first goal and at Old Trafford it’s very hard to get back. it was disappointing.

“Everyone was frustrated with how it went, because it was the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup.

“We all wanted to progress and we have a good history in the competition that we wanted to continue.”

Crouch is insistent that it was a mere blip and that they must regroup to be ready for our next match, away to Everton on Sunday.

“We have done fantastically well so far this season. This was a disappointment and hopefully it’s a one-off.

“We now have to focus on the league and the FA Cup, starting with Everton on Sunday.”
