A costly error from the England No.1 led to the Saints' second goal on Saturday as they triumphed 3-1 at St Mary's in a surprise upset.

Hart fumbled his save of Rickie Lambert's shot to allow Steven Davis to bundle home the rebound as City's Premier League title hopes were dealt a hefty blow.

He had also failed to clear in the build-up to Jason Puncheon's ninth-minute opener, allowing the Saints man to stab home.

The 25-year-old keeper has made several high-profile errors this season and Mancini has hit out at the shot-stopper.

He was quoted as saying in The Sun: "Joe has made too many mistakes. He has not been good enough.

"It was a really bad mistake from Joe.

"It was not good enough. It's not strange because he's done a few mistakes this year."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
