Southampton striker Lambert: Silva decision unbelievable, disgraceful

Southampton striker Ricki Lambert was furious with the manner of their 4-1 defeat at Manchester City.

David Silva was clearly offside for Samir Nasri's goal - which put City ahead 2-1 just before halftime.

Lambert told saintsfc.co.uk: "It is a disgrace of a decision, I have got to say.

"You can understand two or three yards but five or six - it's unbelievable. I haven't got words for it.

"It absolutely killed us going into half-time. At 1-1 at half-time at this place, it gives everyone a lift.

"We're not saying we would have drawn or won, but it would have been a different game. Going back out at 3-1 down, it's hard to get back into a game."
