Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph believes that his side's Champions League quarter-final opponents Paris Saint-Germain are a great team with many world class players, but the Citizens are their equals.

The Citizens have been drawn against the French champions in the quarter-finals of the European competition with the first leg scheduled to be played in France on 6th April and the return leg at the Etihad on 12th April.

Delph, who is recovering fitness post an Achilles injury and is expected to return to action when his side play Bournemouth next month, insists that Laurent Blanc's side have good players and will be a strong threat.

However, Delph feels that his team have a strong unit themselves and will be ready to counter the PSG threat and win the tie to progress through to the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time.

“They are great team who have many world class players, but so have we”, Delph told his club's official website.  


“We’ll have a game plan and if we execute that to perfection, I can’t see why we can’t come out victorious over the two legs.”

On a more personal front, the former Aston Villa man took time to speak about his first season at the Etihad, thanking the fans and expressing his wish to put the injuries behind him and be successful for the Sky Blues.

“Apart from my injuries, it’s been a fantastic first year at City.

"The boys have welcomed me, the fans have been great with me and hopefully I can get fully fit, put all the injuries behind me and get going again.”
