Spurs striker looking forward to Arsenal clash

Crouch scored his first Premier League goal of the season at the weekend, in the 4-2 victory over Blackburn.

Crouch said: “I have scored six goals this season and I have been part of another five maybe – that is 11 goals.

“Everyone loves scoring, don’t get me wrong, and I am no different. When you are a striker you get judged on that.

“I have been scoring in the Champions League and my last goal was against Inter Milan – which was only a couple of games ago.

“So, yes, I feel confident that I will score goals and it was pleasing to get one against Blackburn.

“I have been pleased with my performances and the manager would not play me if he did not think I was having an impact.”

Crouch is in confident mood ahead fo Spurs’ clash with rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

“We are looking forward to the game at Arsenal. We are not there yet, but we are certainly a lot closer to them than we have been for a long time,” said Crouch.

“They are a top-quality side with a lot of young players. We changed our side around in the Carling Cup when Arsenal won 4-1 but they were fantastic.

“We know that they are a great side but I believe that on our day we can beat anyone.

“If you really want to have a proper impact on the league you have to go to places like Arsenal and pick up points. We have a lot of talent to do that.”
