Delph positive despite Spurs defeat

Last Updated: Mon, 21 Oct 2013 12:16

Fabian Delph insists Aston Villa worked as hard as they could to get something out of the clash against Spurs but mistakes cost them.

Tottenham ended up 2-0 winners at Villa Park as goals from Andros Townsend and Roberto Soldado gave Andre Villas-Boas's team all three points on a disappointing afternoon for the home side.

Delph could not fault the work-rate of Paul Lambert's side and said a couple of errors for the goals had let them down.

"I thought we worked hard - 100 per cent as usual - but maybe there were little mistakes," he told the club's website.

"We will go back to the drawing board and look at what we've done wrong and we'll come back next week hopefully a bit stronger.

"I think we were pushing to get something out of the game."

Delph added: "But they saw the game out. Credit to them, they are a good team and they could be up there by the end of the season. But we fought and we gave 100 per cent."

Villa host Everton next weekend as they look to bounce back from Sunday's defeat.
