Peter Crouch spoke of his joy at joining some of his heroes in the "prestigious club" of players to have scored 100 Premier League goals after the Stoke striker reached the landmark in Wednesday's draw with Everton.

He is the 26th player to get to 100 Premier League goals, adding his name to a list that features the likes of Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry.

Crouch told Stoke City Player: "It is a great moment for me personally.

"It is quite a prestigious club - some heroes of mine and some players I have looked up to in the past. It is great to be among them."

He added of his celebration: "I was under so much pressure to pull out the robot - to be honest, it was a little bit rusty! I think I'll put that one away now!"

He signed a new deal with Stoke in January that runs through to the summer of 2018.
