Not to be - Crouchy

Peter Crouch was left to reflect on a frustrating afternoon against a resolute Villa defence in Saturday's goalless draw.

Try as we might, we couldn't find a way past the best defence in the Barclays Premier League with the likes of Richard Dunne, James Collins and goalkeeper Brad Friedel all outstanding.

Friedel notably denied Ledley King, Tom Huddlestone, David Bentley and Jermain Defoe and it seemed whenever we had a shooting chance, a Villa body would block it.

"Yes, it was really frustrating," said Peter. "We did enough to win the game, we had more possession, created more chances and it was disappointing not to get the win I thought we deserved.

"We certainly created the chances. We got ourselves into shooting positions and whenever we got a shot off Richard Dunne or James Collins was there to make a block. If we got past them, the goalkeeper was fantastic as well.

"They defended well, lots of last-ditch tackles and blocks and it was a case of a frustrating day for us.

"It was one of those days at White Hart Lane. We had all the play, a lot of chances and the crowd was fantastic, everyone was willing the ball in but it wasn't to be."
