Allardyce: Man City's Richards outstanding

Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce regards Manchester City defender Micah Richards as an "outstanding" talent ahead of today's game.

Allardyce said: "Micah Richards has gained a vast amount of experience in a short period of time and has used his outstanding attributes to become not just a regular player for Man City but for England as well.

"I think has still got a good bit to learn from a tactical and positional point of view but his pace gets him out of trouble when he makes a wrong decision and that makes up for it.

"In particular, his move to a new position from full-back has helped and he is now a truly outstanding central defender."
