Micah Richards is ready to return and ease Manchester City's full-back crisis for Sunday's Premier League encounter with Arsenal.

With Aleksandar Kolarov already ruled out for four weeks with a groin injury, the last thing manager Roberto Mancini wanted was to lose Gael Clichy as well. But the France international must serve a one-match suspension following his red card at Chelsea on Monday night.

However, Richards, who has been missing for a fortnight with a calf problem, should have recovered and Mancini said: "I think Micah will be OK for Sunday. Then we have Pablo (Zabaleta), who can play on the left."
