Spurs hero targets third

TOTTENHAM hero Peter Crouch has targeted overhauling Arsenal on the final day of the season after firing Spurs into to the Champions League.

The former Portsmouth striker got the only goal against Manchester City to guarantee Spurs fourth place at least but he hopes to secure an automatic place in the Champions League group stages by leapfrogging Arsenal in third.

Harry Redknapp’s men must beat Burnley and hope the Gunners slip up at home to Europa League finalists Fulham.

“If Arsenal lose, we’ve got an opportunity, and there’s no way we won’t be up for it on the last day just because we’ve qualified for the Champions League.

“We’ll be going all out to finish strongly at Burnley and get a result, and see what happens.

“I’ve got to be honest, we didn’t dream about catching Arsenal. They were challenging for the title at one point, and we were never in the title race. But it’s a possibility and that would be fantastic, the icing on the cake.”
