Tottenham striker Peter Crouch has insisted the Londoners are better than Liverpool's team that reached the Champions League.

Crouch was part of the Liverpool outfit that lost to AC Milan in the Athens final, and the forward seems fairly sure this Spurs side is stronger.

'I think it might be,' he said. 'We had some great individuals when I was at Liverpool and we managed to reach a Champions League final, which was fantastic. But as a group of players I don't think I've played with better really.

It's not just that; we have a young squad. We have some many international players waiting to get on and get a game and it's just a pleasure being part of it.'

Spurs booked their place in the knockout stages with victory over Werder Bremen on Wednesday, and Crouch believes their success is the gateway to more glory.

'When the draw came up with Inter Milan it could have been a lot easier, but we've got such quality in our dressing room that we shouldn't be afraid of anyone.

'We've proved that, even this week. We beat Arsenal and won another Champions League game quite comfortably.

'I said right from the start when I came to this club, when I looked around the dressing room, and thinking how we've not achieved anything. I think it's only a matter of time.'
