Fabian Delph to start for England following Jordan Henderson injury?

Fabian Delph could reportedly start for England in tonight's Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland after Jordan Henderson suffered a training-ground injury.

England manager Roy Hodgson is reportedly considering naming Fabian Delph in his starting lineup to face Switzerland in tonight's Euro 2016 qualifier.

The Aston Villa midfielder has emerged as a candidate to replace Jordan Henderson, who limped off with an apparent ankle injury in training at the weekend.

According to The Express, while reports have claimed that James Milner is favourite to be given the nod, it is believed that Hodgson is leaning towards starting Delph in midfield.

The 24-year-old made his senior England debut when he came off the bench in last week's 1-0 win over Norway in a friendly at Wembley.
