City need to win to stay ahead of Manchester United on goal difference.
‚ÄúThey‚Äôre a really good side and I think Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse are going to be a real handful,‚ÄĚ Richards told City's website.
‚ÄúI think Vinnie is going to have to follow Cisse around and stick to him like a leach because everything he tries at the moment seems to come off.
‚ÄúHis two goals at Chelsea were world class and Nigel de Jong knows what he‚Äôs capable of because I think he‚Äôs been up against him a few times in Germany. He says he‚Äôs always been a goal-scorer so he‚Äôll be a threat.
‚ÄúThey have other talents like Yohan Cabaye - but we will have eleven fantastic players that Newcastle will be worrying about and we know if we are at our best, we can beat anyone."
