Stoke star reminded fans of his 2010 winner for Tottenham.
Tottenham Hotspur washed away memories of their last two horror trips to The Etihad Stadium and recaptured the spirit of a much more memorable one.
The last two games played away at City resulted in 6-0 and 4-1 defeats, making this win even more satisfactory for Mauricio Pochettino's side.
The win was reminiscent of a 1-0 win in 2010 which Tottenham pulled off at The Etihad, which sealed Champions League qualification.
Striker Peter Crouch was the hero that day, scoring the winner, and he reacted on Twitter to Spurs pulling off a big win.
Coys massive— Peter Crouch (@petercrouch) February 14, 2016
Tottenham's 2-1 win did not have the finality which the 2010 win gave them as it is still just mid-February rather than May when that game was played, but there is a bigger prize on offer.
A Champions League place looks pretty secure already, and sights are set on a Premier League title win.
Former Spurs hero Graham Roberts responded to Crouch, telling him his goal was more important.
@petercrouch nearly as big As your winning goal that special night today crouchy!— Graham Roberts (@GrahamRoberts4) February 14, 2016
Supporters also responded, full of admiration for the former England international, impressed with how he continues to follow Tottenham's fortunes.
