Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has received a one match ban for comments towards the officials who awarded a penalty to Manchester City against the Midlanders. Despite this he is still angered with the decision, saying: "I still stick by the decision. It annoyed me."

He will now have to watch from the stands when his side take on Arsenal at Villa Park on Saturday.

"You can't change it," Lambert continued. "But if you're only about 40 yards away, how can you not see it. Nobody claimed for it.

"It might not have changed the result or whatever but it certainly changed the pattern of the game because we were well in it.

"The aftermath happens and then you end up getting done for it."
