Crouch: Tough start to Stoke season has given them confidence

Peter Crouch claims Stoke City will take the positives of a tough start to the campaign with them to Manchester United at the weekend. They have already visited Chelsea and Liverpool this season, while tackling Arsenal and Manchester City at home, and morale is high within the Britannia Stadium camp.

Crouch told The Sentinel: "Anfield is a tough place to go, so to get a point there is fantastic. We had chances to maybe nick it too, so it was a deserved point.

"The Chelsea game was frustrating because we felt we could have got something out of it. We got something at Liverpool, but the bigger test will be at United.

"We have had some tough games, so to get the points we have has been brilliant.

"It has given us a good foothold and we will look to improve on that when we get some easier fixtures."
