Despite not picking up victories from recent away matches against Chelsea and Liverpool, the Potters earned a number of plaudits for the performances that they put in.
Former England striker Crouch believes that his teammates should take confidence from those encounters into Saturday's match against the Red Devils.
"Anfield is a tough place to go. So to get a point there is fantastic," Crouch told ESPN. "We had chances to maybe nick it too, so it was a deserved point.
"The Chelsea game was frustrating because we felt we could have got something out of it. We got something at Liverpool. The bigger test will be at United but we are looking forward to it."
Stoke are currently 12th in the Premier League table.
