Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph admits he is his "own worst critic" as he looks to build on his promising performance against Manchester United in Sunday's FA Cup fifth round clash at Crystal Palace.

Delph is relishing the prospect of coming up against Palace skipper Shaun Derry who was a team-mate of his at Leeds - and is hoping to play back-to-back games for the first time since his £6 million summer move from Elland Road.

He said: "I think I was tidier on the ball against United than against Brighton and I think that was down to having a bit more space."

He added: "But I played a couple of diagonal passes that went out of play and that will be playing on my mind for a few days. I will work on that and get it right in training.

"I think I am my own worst critic but I have good people around me who also want the best for me, as I do myself.

"I used to watch DVDs of the games I played at Leeds. I would often do that with the management there. They would sit me down and go through things.

"I've not done that this season because I've not played a lot of games but, if I asked the management here to do it, they'd be more than happy to do so."
