Kieran Richardson went in studs up in the 21st minute and was rightly sent off sentencing Aston Villa to a 1-0 loss.
Aston Villa haven't been very good going forward even when playing even strength. It comes as no surprise that they were unable to score against local rivals West Brom after Kieran Richardson was red cardedearly. Villa mounted a minimal attack and ultimately conceded in the second half on a rebound falling to former Villa man Craig Gardner. Dec 13 - 12:08 PM

Aston Villa have signed left-back Kieran Richardson on a two-year deal.

Richardson played for Fulham last season, averaging just a bit over five fantasy points per game in the Yahoo! game. He played 31 matches, scoring four times and assisting three. He can play a variety of positions, including in midfield, and was actually listed as a midfielder in fantasy last year. That hurts his value as he can't earn clean sheet points. Richardson will likely battle Antonio Luna and Joe Bennett for the left-back spot but has claimed he is willing to play at any position. He isn't likely to be a fantasy threat.

Fulham were thrashed by Stoke City in a 4-1 loss which, along with a Sunderland win, has sealed their fate as a club who will be relegated to the Championship next season.

Fulham are out of the top flight for the first time since 2001. Personnel decisions since last summer along with untimely injuries played a significant role in their poor season, as big names like Dimitar Berbatov underachieved and no other striker could establish themselves as reliable. The fact that Steven Sidwell finishes as their top goal scorer tells the story. Meanwhile, the defense leaked more goals than anyone this season, letting four more by today. They have a ton of veterans and wages to offload as they look to rebuild and fight to return in the 2015/2016 season.

Kieran Richardson played a part in both of Fulham's goals against Liverpool, scoring once and setting up a cross that resulted in a Kolo Toure own goal, but the Cottagers could not keep the Reds down, giving up the lead twice and eventually falling 2-3.

Fulham were arguably the better sider for more than a half, but superior talent eventually won out as the Cottagers were surely knackered coming off an intense draw at Old Trafford a few days ago. Darren Bent was handed a start, perhaps his last with Kostas Mitroglou close to making his debut. Maarten Stekelenburg had to come off with a knock and was replaced by David Stockdale in what has been an injury plagued first season at the Cottage.

Keiran Richardson, who has been out with a hamstring injury since going off on opening weekend, is fit to feature again for Fulham.

John Arne Riise's run at left back appears likely to end this weekend as Keiran Richardson returns to health. The converted midfielder has been absent since injuring his hamstring in Week 1 but is set to return for Martin Jol against West Brom. Given West Brom's scoring issues you might think KRich would be an interesting fantasy option but he is listed as a midfielder in the Yahoo game and, as a result, won't get clean sheet points even if West Brom's scoring woes continue.
