Spurs striker Crouch: Arsenal thriller what Premier League is all about
Like everyone else inside White Hart Lane, Crouch was raving about the fantastic North London derby against Arsenal as Tottenham clawed their way back from 3-1 down.
He said: "It's what the Premier League is all about. It was end-to-end. I am gutted I missed out on watching it, really!
"It was a great game of football and I thought, in the end, only one team was going to win it.
Arsenal are always dangerous on the break but in the second-half we were fantastic and probably deserved to win it.
"You could see that both teams were going all-out for the win, you could see that.
"It was a little bit frustrating but we've still closed the gap. It's two points now behind City - and it all might rest on going up there again."
