Stoke City striker Peter Crouch is confident he has joined a club very much on the up.

The England international left Tottenham to link up with the Potters on transfer deadline day and he is convinced by recent results that have the club sitting eighth on the Premier League table.

"We've played Chelsea, Liverpool and Man United and got five points out of those games," he told Sky Sports News.

"We've still got a lot of teams to play at the Britannia and, while to lose a couple away from home has been frustrating, I feel I have joined a really good club, a club on the up."
