The Movember caterpillar on Peter Crouch's upper lip couldn't protect his mouth from a flailing Fabricio Coloccini arm during Stoke's 2-1 win against Newcastle on Wednesday. Crouch, who is seven inches taller than Coloccini, was forced out of the game in the 40th minute with a mouth full of blood and mangled teeth.

After the match, Stoke manager Tony Pulis detailed the wreckage (via TeamTalk):

"The doctor had couple of teeth in his hand when he walked off and he has one or two right in his gum too so he is going to have to have a little bit of work done on his teeth."

That will make it difficult for Crouch to have his nachos for a while.
