Fabian Delph was on top form in 2012-13 season.

After several injury-affected campaigns, Delph starred under Paul Lambert.

By the end of the campaign, he was one of the first-choice midfielders, alongside Ashley Westwood and Yacouba Sylla.

Delph, who loves a tackle, is a popular and charismatic member of the squad.

His performances this season have undoubtedly been even better.

He's been brilliant in central midfield and must be the favourite to take home both player of the year awards at the end of season dinner.

The ace central star has also scored some fantastic goals, his efforts against Chelsea, Southampton and the Baggies obvious standouts.

Delph made his debut for Leeds as a 16-year-old and quickly became one of English football's brightest young talents after some sterling performances for his boyhood team.

His displays earned him the League One Young Player of the Year award in 2008-09, as well as the Leeds Players' Player of the Season.

Villa came calling that summer and, after a terrific debut in a pre-season victory over Fiorentina, Delph was thrown into the thick of the Barclays Premier League action for the opening day clash against Wigan.

His first goal for Villa came in the FA Cup fourth round victory over Brighton at Villa Park.

But the 2009-10 campaign ended prematurely for Delph when he suffered a serious knee injury in training in April 2010.

He returned to action in February 2011 as a make-shift left-back in a top-flight triumph over Blackburn.

In the penultimate game of the season, Delph produced one of his finest displays in a Villa shirt as the boys in claret and blue earned a brilliant 2-1 win over Arsenal at the Emirates.

The 2011-12 campaign proved to be a frustrating one for the England U21 international.

In January, he rejoined Leeds on loan but his temporary stint at the Elland Road club was cut short when he suffered an ankle injury.
