Delph will have surgery on a dislocated shoulder suffered in training Tuesday and he will be sidelined for at least two months, the BBC reports.

Delph's fantasy upside in most games is limited given his role as a defensive midfielder, though his absence could be a hit to the Aston Villa defenders with less help up front now.
