Peter Crouch Reveals Which Premier League Front Three He'd Love To Play In
Peter Crouch has revealed he would've loved to play in Liverpool's current front three during his prime.
The Reds romped to the Premier League title last season and finished 18 points ahead of closest rivals Manchester City.
A front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino proved too hot to handle for top-flight defences.
Speaking to SPORTbible ahead of the Premier League's return, former Liverpool man Crouch explained why he'd love to be in that three.
"I used to love playing with pace personally, because I didn't have any myself!
"Just having people around me because once you play with pace, you can play further forward.
"For me, the closer I could get to goal the better. If a team plays a high line, I'm not going to run in behind.
"I would have loved to play with [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang, I'd have absolutely loved to.
"Having said that, you can't write off Liverpool's front three. Salah bags at least 30 goals every season, Mane the same.
"Playing up front with them would be an absolute dream so if I could replace anyone, I'd be up front with Salah and Mane."

Crouch spoke glowingly of his former club and he predicted them to retain the Premier League title this season.
The former England international also spent part of his career at Tottenham Hotspur, who have been the subject of an 'All Or Nothing' documentary from Amazon.
When asked if which season of his career he'd have liked to be documented, Crouch admitted the 2006/2007 season would be his choice.
"It would have been when I was at Liverpool, in 2007, I think that was my best season.
"Either 2006, 2007 at Liverpool. It would have made a good documentary to be honest. There were a few characters in the dressing room, there was a lot going on.
"We won the FA Cup in 2006 and then in 2007 we got to the Champions League final. So that would have made a good documentary definitely.
"Big characters, a lot of fun had and I was playing the best football of my life, that was probably the prime of my life playing for Liverpool."
When asked if he'd have coped with the cameras monitoring his every move, 'Crouchy' replied: "No I wouldn't have liked it at all to be honest!
"It's great for the viewer but I'm not sure how much I'd have liked it as a player or as part of a squad."
