Pochettino hits out at refs

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino claimed schoolboy-standard refereeing robbed his side of the chance of victory at title-chasing Manchester City.

Pochettino was angry after two key decisions went against his side in their 4-1 Barclays Premier League loss at the Etihad Stadium.

The Saints boss first felt the penalty awarded to Edin Dzeko for City's opener was soft, while the hosts then benefited from an incorrect offside decision for their second goal.

I think those two decisions killed the game, that penalty we conceded and the second goal. Those two moments killed the game.

The only positive I can think of is for the first 45 minutes we were superior to a team that is actually equipped to win the Premier League.But to beat a team like Manchester City, a team that is full of quality world-class players, not only do you have to have the perfect game, but also the refereeing decisions have to be fair and that did not happen today.

– Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Kompany buoyed by win

Vincent Kompany said Manchester City would take "a lot of positives and confidence" from the 4-1 win over Southampton.

Yaya Toure's penalty gave the title hopefuls an early lead before further goals from Samir Nasri, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic wrapped up the win. Rickie Lambert replied for Saints from the penalty spot.

It's a good result so we're all happy.

We knew it was going to be a big game and a very difficult one, so we take a lot of positives and confidence out of this game. Not many teams will dominate a game against Southampton.

– Kompany speaking to BT Sport.
