Liverpool's Crouch happy to create winner: I'll now be dropped

Liverpool striker Peter Crouch was happy to create the winner for Andriy Voronin against Toulouse yesterday - but accepts he's unlikely to face Chelsea on the weekend.

Crouch said: "I managed to flick it on and from there in was all about Andriy.

"It was a superb finish and fitting to win any match."

He added: "It was extremely hot out there for all the lads.

"Maybe the performance could have been better but it was a great result."

Crouch, who was left out at Aston Villa on Saturday, admitted he expected Benitez to rotate again for Sunday's game with Chelsea.

"I was disappointed not to be involved in the first game but the manager's proved he does like to rotate," the England forward said.

"I'm sure there will be changes again when we play Chelsea.

"I gave up a year and a half ago trying to second guess his teams. You can never tell which team he's going to play."
