Richards in line for City return

Micah Richards could return to the Manchester City squad for tomorrow’s trip to Everton.

The full-back has been missing for six weeks with a hamstring injury but manager Roberto Mancini is ready to hand Richards a place on the bench.

Pablo Zabaleta and Nigel de Jong have recovered from minor knocks but Carlos Tevez (hamstring) is not expected to be involved as the Blues close in on a Champions League spot.

Team (from): Hart, Given, Taylor, Richards, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Kolarov, Boyata, Wright-Phillips, Y Toure, De Jong, Vieira Milner, Barry, Johnson, Silva, Dzeko, Balotelli, Jo, McGivern.
