Stoke City boss Tony Pulis admits he's struggling to find room for Peter Crouch after victory over Liverpool.

Pulis was delighted for strike pair Jonathan Walters and Kenwyne Jones, who proved to be a handful for the Liverpool defence as they engineered the remarkable response.

“Walts took his goals very well, while Kenwyne has done smashing again,” he said. “Crouchy is chomping at the bit to get back in the side, but if Kenwyne keeps playing the way he is playing at the moment, it is extremely difficult to leave him out.

“If he plays to his maximum all the time, he is as much of a handful as any striker in the Premier League. He’s got everything in his locker, so it’s just getting him to do that. Tonight, he certainly did that to great effect and I thought he was fantastic.”
