Mauricio Pochettino claims that the referee's failure to give an offside in the build-up to Manchester City's goal cost Southampton this afternoon.
Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has criticised the officials during his side's defeat to Manchester City earlier today.
Southampton lost 4-1 having drawn level midway through the first half, but then conceded twice just before the break.
Pochettino felt that his side were the better team up until then and was annoyed that Samir Nasri's goal was allowed to stand despite David Silva being offside in the build-up.
"It's clear that the second goal completely changed the entire game," Pochettino told reporters. "After the second goal there is nothing to analyse.
"We were far superior but afterwards there is nothing to do, it's impossible to play against a decision like that, there is nothing we can do. It killed off the game."
Southampton's Jay Rodriguez was stretchered off in the match and Pochettino confirmed that it looks like a bad injury.
