In an exclusive interview with th’official site, City and England’s Micah Richards has underlined the strength of the City squad’s spirit ahead of the Newcastle clash…

The athletic 23 year old MCFC Academy graduate recently lost his place in Roberto Mancini’s side through injury and the subsequent heroic performances of Pablo Zabaleta but the message from Micah is loud and clear:

‘Training has never been better, the lads are in great spirit and it doesn’t matter who starts because whoever plays, they will give their all to try and get us over the finishing line…We are in good shape, we all want to play, but I can’t see how the manager could change a team that has played so well and I don’t know why he would want to, either.’

Of the challenge Alan Pardew’s resurgent Newcastle present, the big defender said:

‘Newcastle like to play attacking football…and we always seem to play better against teams like that because it suits our style…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.’
