PETER CROUCH'S talents stretch far beyond his giant 6'7" frame.

An obvious aerial threat, with no player netting more headers in Premier League history than the 36-year-old, he is equally as adept with the ball at his feet.

Few players are more recognisable than Crouch, and his characteristics both on the pitch and off it have made him a real fan-favourite, not just amongst Stoke supporters but football fans in general.

A cult-hero for his country, Crouch averaged better than a goal every other game at international level, netting 22 times in just 42 appearances throughout a five-year spell.

Adored by fans of QPR, Portsmouth, Aston Villa, Southampton and Liverpool, it is at the bet365 Stadium that Crouch has made the most appearances.

His hat-trick against Stevenage earlier this campaign means he is just three goals shy of 50 for the Club, whilst he remains a handful away from joining the Premier League's 'Century Club'.
