Richards has missed the start of the season with hamstring trouble but was an unused substitute in the weekend derby win against Manchester United.

Midfielder Jack Rodwell missed that game with a knock and could be doubtful while playmaker David Silva (thigh) and defender Gael Clichy (thigh) continue to be assessed.

Changes are probable with the likes of Joleon Lescott, James Milner and Stevan Jovetic pushing for places.
