Crouch: Liverpool attacking signings key to success

Peter Crouch believes the plethora of striking options available to manager Rafael Benitez will hold the key to Liverpool's bid for the Premier League title this season.

The manager has invested heavily over the summer to re-enforce the Reds' attacking corps, bringing in Fernando Torres, Ryan Babel and Andriy Voronin.

While the signing of Spain star Torres may have proved the most eye-catching, Voronin has impressed during Liverpool's pre-season campaign and with Crouch and Kuyt, who scored 18 and 14 goals respectively last term, plus Holland international Babel also vying for a starting berth, Liverpool will boast one of the most potent attacking forces in the Premier League for the coming campaign.

"What is good is that I think that any of the strikers can play with each other," Crouch said.

"There's no direct competition between any of us, we can play together.

"I think it will be crucial how the strikers combine but we've certainly got a mixture of pace and aerial ability with the new players and that is obviously good for the club."
