Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph says the players were never gripped by any anxiety over their survival chances.

Delph insists any concern never seeped into the Villa dressing room.

"We are young players and we have fire in our bellies," the midfielder said. "It might sound mad but we are not feeling that much pressure.

"We are going out there and enjoying it.

"We have been selected to do a job and that is what we have been doing.

"We will work 100 per cent in every game. If it is not going for us we will still keep going."
