Peter Crouch feels Stoke City have a great chance to go one better this season in the FA Cup.

The Potters face Liverpool in today's quarterfinal.

He said: “When I came here in the ­summer there was still a lot of talk about last year’s final.

“There are ­pictures around the ­training ground of last year’s success.

“We want to be getting that kind of success every year – the manager speaks so highly of the competition and I know he wants to do well. And for me, winning the FA Cup when I was at ­Liverpool was absolutely massive.

“My dad was a big Chelsea fan and always used to go on about Peter ­Osgood scoring in 1970 and we had pictures on the wall.

“So to win it was really special, and whenever I look at my medal, I think of my dad. I’ve thanked Steven Gerrard so many times!”
