Manchester City fans joke about Micah Richards' Aston Villa performance on Twitter

Micah Richards

The Villa defender didn't cover himself in glory against former club Manchester City.

Manchester City fans couldn't help but joke about Micah Richards' Aston Villa performance on Twitter after their 4-0 win at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

City had lost 3-0 at Anfield earlier this week but bounced back with a comfortable win over Villa, with Remi Garde's men once again embarrassing themselves with their lack of quality - and lack of heart.

It was Richards, though, who was the target of a few lighted-hearted tweets, due to the defender being a former Manchester City player.

Indeed, a poor performance from the 27-year-old had some City fans joking that he is still a blue following Aston Villa's four-goal defeat.

Next up for Villa is a home clash against Tottenham Hotspur, meaning things don't get any easier for them in the Premier League.

Manchester City, meanwhile, travel to Norwich City in the Premier League next weekend. Here's how their fans reacted on Twitter to Richards' Aston Villa display...
