Micah Richards believes that De Bruyne and Foden are great players and they have to play in every game.

Micah Richards

, the former


defender, believes that

Kevin De Bruyne

, Manchester City's midfielder who played as a striker last night and managed to score in the match against Chelsea is a "gem"

De Bruyne said that he is willing to get Manchester to its former place as an all-time-great.

Richards said:

“I've talked about De Bruyne for so long, he's just incredible to watch. He says he's played there before. He's just a complete footballer. 

“He can do both attacking and defensive work. It takes some beating to be better than him, it's just absolutely incredible. I think he's consistent. 

“He's so passionate and he wants to show the world what he can do because he's an absolute gem of a player. He's one of the best midfielders we've ever seen in the Premier League.”

The 20-year-old

Phil Foden

has also shown great potential which has got Richards thinking:

“I just want to see Foden play every single week. He's played like this before and has been left out of the team. Every time he plays he does affect the game.

“He gives so much more to the team than just goals and assists - his energy, his work rate, his desire, he's got absolutely everything.

“I've been saying this for years. I'm not comparing him to David Silva. He's an incredible talent but he deserves to be playing every single game.”
