Leeds United player Tyler Denton praises Aston Villa's Fabian Delph

Aston Villa

A Leeds United prospect clearly enjoys watching one of Aston Villa's star men.

Leeds United teenager Tyler Denton clearly liked what he saw during Aston Villa’s FA Cup semi-final clash with Liverpool, singling out one player for special praise.

Fabian Delph is one of Villa’s star players and he has shone for much of the campaign; however, the 24-year-old really stepped up at Wembley and put in one hell of a shift, scoring what proved to be the winning goal and looking mightily impressive throughout.

It was a performance that prompted Leeds youngster Denton to take to Twitter and write the following message:

“Delph been class for Villa today and all season for them #baller.”

It had been expected that Delph would move on in due course but having penned a new deal at Villa Park it seems the midfielder is fully focused on achieveing his goals exactly where he is.

And under new manager Tim Sherwood, there are signs the club are heading in the right direction.

A relatively young Villa side looked great against a Liverpool team who will be ruing this missed opportunity for the rest of the campaign and beyond.

But take nothing away from Villa, who were superb, with Delph earning the plaudits of Leeds’ Denton and many more people besides.
