Having faced injury concerns and limited playing time during his decade-long spells at Aston Villa and Manchester City, Fabian Delph finally looks to become a more regular Premier League first-teamer. The 29-year-old has signed a three-year deal with Everton after having spent four years with Manchester City.
The scout report explains using analysis how Fabian Delph will fit Everton boss Silva’s system at Goodison Park with the help of statistics. The tactical analysis in this scout report also shows how the Portuguese gaffer could make use of Delph’s tactics in his setup.
Delph was only featured in 11 appearances for Manchester City in the last season following his 22 career-high league appearances for the Citizens in their Premier League-winning season of 2017/18. Now the move to Goodison Park will provide the English midfielder-come-defender with promising opportunities to play regular football. At Everton, Delph would also offer the Toffeemen his experience of playing with the Premier League champion.
