Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert rated Fabian Delph's winner against Chelsea as "world class".

Delph started the move, rolled a pass out wide to substitute Marc Albrighton and continued his run before beating Petr Cech with a clever backheel.

“I thought the goal was fantastic," said Lambert.

“He starts it himself. He puts Marc Albrighton in. The cutback from Marc is terrific.

“But he has that flick in his locker, things like that.

“It was a world-class finish. And he’s done it against a goalkeeper in Petr Cech that’s been one of the best in Europe for a long time.”
