Rickie Lambert elbowed Nemanja Vidic (Man United) in the face before scoring, should have been disallowed [Vine]

Southampton took the lead against Manchester United this afternoon through Rickie Lambert, but the goal shouldn’t have stood as there was a clear foul in the build-up.

The goalscorer Lambert elbowed United’s Nemanja Vidic in the face, knocking the Serb off his feet, and giving himself free reign to score.

The ref was possibly blindsided; otherwise he’d have surely blown for a foul on Vidic and disallowed the goal.

As the picture above shows, Vidic was left with a bloodied face, though it was too late for the ref to reverse his decision by then.
