Richards positive of City chances

Manchester City defender Micah Richards is still positive about his side’s chances of winning the title, despite a bad run of form at the moment, Sky Sports reports. Richards also saw his side go out of the Carling Cup at the semi-final stage against Liverpool on Wednesday night.

The England international was adjudged to have handballed Daniel Agger’s shot at Anfield and was visibly aggrieved with a somewhat harsh decision. That defeat came after a tough game against Spurs which City won late on, but they were also knocked out of the FA Cup earlier this month by Manchester United. City also lost away at Sunderland and have seen their lead at the top of the table reduced considerably.

Richards is confident his side still have the talent to cope with the losses of Yaya Toure to the African Cup of Nations and is delighted to have captain Vincent Kompany back after injury. The 23 year old believes that Roberto Mancini will deal with the problems at the club and lead City to their first title since 1968.

‘Obviously Mario [Balotelli] is suspended but we have got a boost now with Vinny coming back. We have other stuff going on as well but we will keep strong and we will look forward to our next game, which is Everton. We will go there and try to get a win’, Richards said.
