Manchester City defender Micah Richards admits even he sometimes stands back and admires their play.

Richards says he's like any fan when watching David Silva.

"Sometimes, I just watch and admire. For example, David Silva is one of my favourite players - some of the stuff he does is amazing," said Richards. "I am just glad to be in this team and it was a great honour to lead out a team of such stars and quality players.

"When you are up against Silva, Aguero, Yaya Toure, [Mario] Balotelli and the rest of them, it is hard in training.

"But It kind of makes you better as a player facing them every day. You have got to concentrate all the time. Now and then I’ll even give them a crack - even Balotelli."
