Premier League : Benchwarmers XI (3)

2. Micah Richards

No wonder you will find Micah Richards in this list. The Manchester City defender hasn't been able to displace Pablo Zabaleta off the right-back position since last season.

The England International has failed to impress Manuel Pellegrini about his abilities and has fallen down the pecking order.

Zabaleta's excellent form has kept Richards away from the first-team.

The 25-year-old might call it time at the club if his England starting spot comes into contention. He is currently suffering from a hamstring injury and his return date is unknown.

Richards had recently stated that he is ready to leave the club he joined 11 years ago if the situation doesn't improve.
