Former Liverpool striker, Peter Crouch has noted that Antonio Conte is using Stoke’s tactics at Tottenham.
Crouch played for both Stoke, Liverpool and some other clubs in the Premier League, including Tottenham where he made 73 appearances, scoring 12 goals.
Antonio Conte’s side were beaten for the first time in the Premier League on Sunday when they fell 3-1 to north London rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
Spurs had plenty of first-half chances on the counter attack but the former Liverpool and England striker feels Conte set up his team to defend too deep against the Gunners.
“I’ve played this way at Stoke,” Crouch said during his analysis for BT Sport.
“Tottenham have got enough players to not play this way, I think they can be a little bit more expansive.”
