Everton against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.
The 29-year-old midfielder was deployed in a sitting role in the middle of the park.
The England international, who can also operate as a left-back, looked very comfortable in his role, passed the ball well, and was confident when in possession of the ball.
According to WhoScored, Delph had a pass accuracy of 85.5%, won one header, took 80 touches, and won four headers, three interceptions and two clearances.
Former Everton star Cahill was following the match against Wolves, and he was impressed with the performance of Delph - who joined the Toffees from defending Premier League champions Manchester City in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £10 million - as well as with Richarlison.

Timing of that run is everything out jumps the defender and guides the ball beautifully into the corner @richarlison97— TIM CAHILL (@Tim_Cahill) September 1, 2019
Great team selection today by Marco Silva today. Thought Fabian Delph was outstanding, brought some real grit and leadership to the team. @richarlison97 goals fantastic along with @alexiwobi @Everton Great day for the Blues.— TIM CAHILL (@Tim_Cahill) September 1, 2019
