Micah Richards scores against Arsenal

Micah heads goalwards v Arsenal

Micah heads goalwards v Arsenal

Micah Richards today scored against Arsenal...more than two months after the match finished!

The Football Association’s Dubious Goals Panel decided that the header that opened the scoring against the Gunners in the 4-2 victory should be credited to the Blues defender and not Manuel Almunia the visiting keeper.

The goal takes Richards' total for the club to four though the defender, who is currently away in Lithuania captaining England’s under 21 side, reckons his tally should be an awful lot better.

“I think they should have a dubious offside and a dubious foul panel too then maybe I would have three this season,” laughed Micah.

“I still think those goals against Portsmouth and Fulham should have stood but nevertheless it is nice to get that one back because it was a pretty good header.”
