Proving our worth

Peter Crouch believes our back-to-back victories over Arsenal and Chelsea last week send out a clear message.

With the race for a place in next season's Champions League getting all the more intense, the striker believes successive wins over two of the country's top sides proves we are well worth a place in Europe's elite competition.

And since arriving at the Lane last summer, the 29-year-old has seen enough to be convinced that we have the ability to compete with the best teams around.

So ‘Crouchy' is focused on finishing the job and fully proving our worth with four games remaining, and it's a trip to champions Manchester United next up to round off a tough run of games against the Premier League's top three.

The England frontman said: "I'd heard fans talking about how great taking three points from these three matches would have been, so six out of six so far isn't bad!

"It's a dream start but I believe in the team, we all do. We have the players to beat teams like that, especially at White Hart Lane.

"We've a fantastic squad, top-quality players, and we've the likes of Ledley King and Aaron Lennon missing but players come in and do a fantastic job.

"We've showed character, fitness levels and the quality to beat two of the best sides in the country.

"We've set ourselves up with these last two games. A lot of people wrote us off getting anything from those games, so we've a fantastic chance now.

"If we manage to get into the Champions League it would be a huge achievement."
