Micah Richards is currently a favoured defender for many Barclays PL Ultimate Teams of FIFA 14. His 91-strength is impressive for a player with 84-sprint speed while his 91-jumping, 88-aggression and 86-heading accuracy mean he is sure to win those contested aerial balls. Richards has 82-sliding tackles and 84-standing tackles making him the perfect option for defending your wings. Priced at a humble 800-coins, Richards is affordable to all and is one of the most beastly right-backs available. The Micah Richards who we will see in FIFA 15 is likely to be a vastly inferior player, and rightly so, since in the past two seasons, Richards has made just 9-league appearances. Unfortunately his 2-league appearances in 2013/14 meant that he was ineligible for a winners meddle despite being signed to the Champions, Manchester City. Richards hasnt been benched due to injury though he has been muscled out of the team by Argentine Pablo Zabaleta, who has for the past two years been one of the Champions finest players. With rumours circulating that Micah Richards may be bound for Hull (a move which could be greatly beneficial to the 26-year-old), expect EA to make him less dominant in FIFA 15 so have a go with him if you havent done so already.
