Crouch's winner vs Newcastle sees him draw level with former Arsenal favourite

Having scored the winner in Stoke's 1-0 victory over Newcastle, Peter Crouch draws level with Dennis Bergkamp in the all-time Premier League goal charts.

Peter Crouch has made 459 professional appearances in a career spanning 14 years, and after Monday night's victory over Newcastle United, he now has 87 Premier league goals to his name. 

This total sees him draw level with former Arsenal favourite Dennis Bergkamp, who retired on the same total, having spent 11 years in North London. Crouch will undoubtedly surpass the Dutchman's record at some stage this season.

The Englishman now has two Premier League goals to his name this term, both of which have come within the club's previous two fixtures. He netted in last weekend's 2-2 draw with Queens Park Rangers, before his goal in Monday's victory over the struggling Magpies.

Having fashioned a total 11 attempts at goal, thus far, he has found the back of the net from 18% of his strikes. Meanwhile, he is yet to squander a guilt-edged opportunity. 

However, prior to his goal at QPR, he had gone ten top flight matches without finding the back of the net.
