Crouch mocks Arsenal players: You could see horror in their eyes

Stoke City veteran Peter Crouch says Arsenal's players were frightened of facing them.

Former Potters boss Tony Pulis used Rory Delap as his long-throw weapon - launching in missile throws to target-man Crouch.

It made the Britannia Stadium a nightmare to go to and Crouch thinks the Arsenal stars in particular hated to travel there.

"The amount of times I saw defences - even getting off the bus - the amount of times I played against Arsenal and they didn't want to be there," he told the That Peter Crouch podcast.

"I watched them get off the bus with shoulders hunched. They knew what they were going to get.

"That look of sheer horror on players' eyes when they got off the bus was so funny to watch.

"It was so funny to watch people wilt in front of you."
