Injury update: Richards, Hutton, Sanchez

Preview: Villa U21 v Newcastle U21 Garde: We need to roll our sleeves up
Injury update: Richards, Hutton, Sanchez

Micah Richards looks set to be fit for the Crystal Palace game.

We face the Eagles on Tuesday, with a 7.45pm kick-off.

Richards came off against Wycombe in the Emirates FA Cup third round encounter with an ankle problem.

But the skipper should be available to take on Palace in the Barclays Premier League this week.

Hutton and Sanchez both have hamstring problems.

Rémi Garde says they are improving as they aim for a return to fitness.

But they will be missing in the upcoming game.

The manager said: "Alan and Carlos won't be fit for this game.

"They have made progress but not enough to be ready to play.

"Micah got a knock on his ankle at Wycombe but he should be available."

Snap up MATCH TICKETS for Tuesday.
