Delph backing Villa pal Tonev to surprise Premier League defences

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph believes new teammate Aleksandar Tonev will surprise opposition defences this season.

Delph expects claret and blue new-boy Tonev to shine in the top flight.

He said: "He's very powerful as a player. He's strong, he's sharp, he's direct too and he gives us another genuine goal threat.

"I have been so impressed with him. You rarely - if ever - get players who are two-footed in football these days. He's great with both feet."
