Manchester City defender Micah Richards has undergone surgery on a knee injury and is expected to be out for up to two months.
The 24-year-old had an operation late on Monday night after sustaining the problem in Saturday's 1-0 Barclays Premier League win over Swansea, Press Association Sport understands.
No official timescale is being put on his recovery by City but it is understood he is likely to be out for between six and eight weeks.
