England fans react on Twitter to Fabian Delph's performance vs Italy

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph wasn't at his best for England during their 1-1 draw with Italy last night.

England fans were less than impressed with Fabian Delph's performance during the Three Lions' match against Italy last night.

Delph started for Roy Hodgson's side in the fixture, but he struggled to make an impression throughout the match. 

The Aston Villa midfielder's passing was wayward, whilst he also didn't manage to drive his nation forward like he often does for his club. 

It was, therefore, a disappointing night for the former Leeds United youngster, who has been starting to establish himself as a regular in Hodgson's line-up. 

Delph has played a key role in England's qualification for Euro 2016, but his place in the team could be in doubt after this disappointing performance.

Although Hodgson has generally kept faith with players he trusts, he does have other options in central midfield and England supporters have recommended that he tries them out.

Here is the best reaction from England fans towards Delph's performance in the 1-1 draw with Italy, on the social media site Twitter.
