106511938Injured Manchester City defender Micah Richards is reportedly considering drastically altering his sleeping routine in order to speed his recovery. The defender is eager to regain his fitness in time for Manchester City’s FA Cup semi-final game with rivals Manchester United,  after sustaining an injury during the England Under-21’s game against Denmark on Thursday. Richards suffered a hamstring injury which is expected to keep him off the pitch for one month but is working towards recovering as soon as he can. The Guardian quotes the 22-year-old star as saying: "Some of the other lads have used an oxygen tent to help them recover more quickly from injuries so I am willing to give it a go. I will sleep in the thing if necessary. I want to be available for that game against United. It is going to be a great occasion."
