Villa are without a game this weekend because of internationals and Delph admits he is already itching to get back in action.
"Some of the players welcome a break," he told Villa's website.
"We put in a shift behind the scenes and on a Saturday we are putting in a hell of a shift too.
"Some people welcome the break but personally I've been injured for so long I prefer to be playing week in, week out.
"I'll be out on my bike putting in the miles."
