The defender had to be stretchered from the field while wearing an oxygen mask in the second half of Saturday's win over Swansea City with what looked a serious problem.

Richards, who only played his first game of the season at the beginning of October after an injury, pulled up and clutched his knee in the 75th minute without any other player close to him.

The full-back then received lengthy treatment on the field before being carried off and Premier League champions Manchester City will now wait for the results of further analysis.

"I'm not sure what Micah has done yet," said manager Roberto Mancini.

"We think he has a problem with his knee but we won't know until next week. But I obviously hope he will be okay."

The injury would add to Mancini's lack of players due to fitness problems and he was already without David Silva, Pablo Zabaleta, Javi Garcia, Maicon and Jack Rodwell.

James Milner is also suspended after his red card in last weekend's win over West Bromwich Albion.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
