Photos: Micah Richards celebrates goal, shows passion Aston Villa fans will love

Micah Richards

Micah Richards scored in Aston Villa's 3-2 defeat to Watford.

Aston Villa's struggles continued on Saturday afternoon as they were beaten 3-2 at Villa Park by Watford, meaning they remain bottom of the Premier League table.

Remi Garde's men continue to leak goals, with seven conceded in the last two games, and Watford strike duo Odion Ighalo and Troy Deeney ran riot at Villa Park, having both found the back of the net.

With just five points from 14 games, Villa are already in an uphill struggle to avoid relegation, with very few players pulling their weight right now.

However, one of the few players to earn praise from Villa fans is defender and captain Micah Richards, who scored Villa's first goal against Watford.

The 27-year-old signed for Villa on a free transfer having left Manchester City at the end of his contract, and has so far been playing at centre back, his preferred position.

A Birmingham-born player, Richards made his return to the West Midlands this summer, and it's clear that he has great passion for Villa judging by his celebration against Watford.

Richards reacted incredibly after his powerful header found the back of the net, and attempted to get the Villa crowd motivated with a passionate celebration.

Here are some of the best photos from Richards' celebration, as he showed the passion that Villa fans will love to see - and want their other players to show too.
