Fabian Delph says he was too sloppy at times against Brighton – and believes he has only himself to blame for not getting more first-team chances this season.

The big-money buy from Leeds got his first Villa goal as MON’s team beat Brighton 3-2 to reach the fifth round, in which they will face the winners of the Crystal Palace/Wolves replay.

Some have criticised O’Neill for not giving Delph more games this season, but the man himself understands why he has found it hard to get in the side, and also brushed off praise from Ashley Young for his display against the Seagulls.

He said: ‘Was that my best performance in a Villa shirt? No definitely not. I thought I was very sloppy in the first half. I've got a lot more to add and hopefully with games, I'll improve.

‘To be fair, I've had a few chances this season and not done particularly well so I've got no-one to blame apart from myself. People like to set themselves high standards, including me, and hopefully I can reach the standards I achieved with Leeds.

‘Obviously it is a big difference here and with time, games and experience and working with other players, I'll get there.’
