The midfielder crashed home his first Premier League goal with a 25-yard shot into the top corner to secure Villa a thrilling victory at high-flying Saints.

Delph, who has been handed the licence to go forward under manager Paul Lambert this season, says he is enjoying his game again following a difficult start to life at the club.

"It's been a while since I've scored a goal like that," the 24-year-old told Sky Sports. "Last time I scored a goal like that was at Leeds, so it's nice to get off the mark.

"I've been getting a bit of stick from the lads (for not scoring), but I've been given the licence to get forward and to get a few shots off. I did that today and luckily one went in.

"We've got a lot of fire in our bellies. We won't sit down and we won't give up - we keep fighting for each other.

"It's a close-knit group. We're like brothers who fight every minute of every game.

"We don't see it as a big deal (going behind in games). It happens and it's something that we're probably used to, but we'll keep fighting and that's what we do."

suspect the review will conclude that Iago Aspas should never have been loaned out. Two hat-tricks in two Copa Del Rey games. One might say he has really turned a corner.
