Peter Crouch admits he loved being part of Tottenham's 3-3 thriller with Arsenal.

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."
