Man City v Villa: Determined Delph targets high five


Fabian Delph is hoping for a five-star finish to the campaign - after revealing he is one goal short of his personal target.

Delph, who picked up the prestigious Terrace Trophy for supporters' player of the season, has weighed in with four goals this term.

The former Leeds midfielder's superb campaign has included strikes in wins against Rotherham, Southampton, West Brom and Chelsea.

But having set himself a target of five goals at the start of the season, he is still eyeing one more from Villa's final two fixtures.

"At the start of the season I set a target of five, so I haven't done that yet," said Delph.

"The goals I've scored have all been important but I'd still like another one and maybe a few more assists."

Three of Delph's strikes made it into the club's goal of the season poll.

His personal favourite was the long-range blockbuster in the 3-2 win at Southampton back in September.

"The one I enjoyed most was the one at St Mary's," he added.

"It was my first in the Premier League, and it was the winner on a night when they had 78 per cent possession.

"To be fair I liked the one against West Brom as well, and my goal against Chelsea was really satisfying because no-one gave us a chance in that game.

"Marc Albrighton deserved a lot of credit too. We had worked a lot on cut-backs in training and for it to come off in a game was massive."
