Crouch confident in Spurs squad

Peter Crouch believes Tottenham have enough strength in depth to cope with their busy schedule in the FA Cup and Premier League.

Spurs face Portsmouth in the FA Cup semi-finals this weekend before three vital Premier League games against Arsenal (April 14) and Chelsea (April 19) at home and then Manchester United at Old Trafford (April 24).

The outcome of those games could determine how successful Spurs’ season will be and Crouch is refusing to look too far ahead, with the World Cup with England on the horizon this summer.

"There’s not too much time to think about World Cups and what have you," Crouch told Sky Sports News.

"We still have a top-four place to try and cement and we have got difficult games with Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal back-to-back.

"But I think with the quality we have got, we can beat anyone on the day and we have got a lot of big games before the end of the season."

Crouch also welcomed the return of Aaron Lennon with the flying winger back in training following two months on the sidelines with a groin problem.

"He has been a big miss for us," added Crouch.

"He is a fantastic player for us, he was on fire for us at the start of the season but look around our squad we have enough quality to cope with injuries.

"We have had Jonathan Woodgate out all season, Ledley King, Tom Huddlestone’s been out recently, Jermaine Jenas, Aaron Lennon and we have coped and I think we have got a good enough squad to cope with those injuries."

Crouch admits winning the FA Cup and finishing in the top four would surpass all expectations at White Hart Lane.

"What a fantastic season that would be if we win the FA Cup and finish fourth," he added.

"I don’t think at the start of the season anyone would have hoped for that. It has probably gone better than expected.

"We have not still not achieved anything yet, we need to go out there and give our best on Sunday [against Portsmouth], take each game as it comes and try and finish the season as strongly as we can."
