Wednesday media watch [06.11.13 AM]: Delph on England dream
Birmingham Mail: Fabian Delph admits playing for England is "every boy's dream" as the Villa midfielder awaits a potential call-up for Roy Hodgson's World Cup practice squads this week. Delph has been Villa's outstanding performer so far this season and is recovering from a sickness bug which ended his Premier League ever-present run ahead of Saturday's draw at West Ham.
Birmingham Mail: Christian Benteke has been stuck on five goals since failing to convert a series of chances upon his return from injury. But Villa's top scorer has been tipped to blast FIVE goals in one game when he gets back on the scoring trail.
