Fabian Delph has admitted he is regularly ribbed by his Manchester City team-mates for his x-rated 'basics of football' speech shown in the club's fly-on-the-wall Amazon documentary.

After City passed up the opportunity to secure last season's Premier League title against their fierce rivals Manchester United, surrendering a two-goal lead to lose 3-2, Delph let rip in the dressing room.

As manager Pep Guardiola and his silent team-mates watched on, Delph launched into a tirade in which he blasted them for 'stopping running' and 'freezing' when things started to turn against them.

Even though City went on to amass 100 points in claiming the title, Delph says he has not been allowed to forget that moment.

'They guys always come up to me now and say, 'Oh, the basics!', Delph told the Daily Telegraph.

When something goes against us, think of the basics of football.

Though Guardiola's side have picked up where they left off this season, currently topping the Premier League following an unbeaten start, Delph hasn't feature as regularly.
