Delph will miss birth to help Villa

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph insists he will miss the birth of his first child to ensure the club survives the Premier League relegation battle.

• Blog: Tackling the relegation riddle

Villa are fighting for their lives in the league, sitting just three points above the drop zone in 17th position.

And with Wigan below them having two games extra in hand, it is all hands on deck for the Birmingham club.

But for Delph that could possibly mean he will have to choose between the club and being by his partner's, Natalie, side as they welcome their first child together.

"We have spoken about (the birth) and we know it's a possibility it could happen when one of the games is about to go on," Delph told the Daily Star.

"But this is a crucial part of the season and if I'm down to play in the games, I need to be playing.

"Natalie appreciates the situation and is 100 per cent behind me. I want to see my baby being born and ideally it will happen on a Wednesday!"

Villa travel to face their next opponent, league leaders Manchester United, on Monday.
