Peter Crouch is a victim of his own body - one of the Premier League's tallest players, he often finds balls lumped up to him in the hopes he'll get a flick on, but he is probably more talented with the ball at his feet.

Crouch suffered a dip in confidence when he took a while to get off the mark at Liverpool, but he has since settled in well at Tottenham Hotspur alongside the nippy Jermain Defoe.

What the wafer-thin Crouch lacks in strength he more than makes up for in technical ability, and unlike Emile Heskey, Crouch would be just as comfortable with the ball at the feet as in the air.

Did you know?

At 6 ft 7 in (2.01 m), Crouch is the tallest man ever to play for the England national team.
