'You're a s**t Rickie Lambert!' - Erling Haaland brutally trolled by Southampton fans, he heard it

'You're a s**t Rickie Lambert!' - Erling Haaland brutally trolled by Southampton fans, he heard it

Haaland came off the bench in Wednesday's 2-0 defeat to Southampton.

Southampton fans brutally mocked Manchester City striker Erling Haaland with a hilarious chant during their 2-0 victory in Wednesday's Carabao Cup quarter-final.

City slipped to a shock 2-0 defeat at St Mary's thanks to two goals in quick succession from Sekou Mara and Moussa Djenepo in the first half.

Pep Guardiola fielded a changed side with a massive clash against Manchester United coming up on Saturday afternoon. It meant Haaland started the game on the bench.

The 22-year-old came on in the second half but failed to have much of an impact, which Saints supporters took great delight in. Check out their chant below.

After missing a glorious chance to half the deficit, Haaland returned to the centre circle while being serenaded by the home end.

Southampton fans hit Haaland with a simple chant of: "You're just a s**t Rickie Lambert!"

Lambert played a vital role in Southampton's promotion in 2013, scoring 28 goals across two seasons before joining boyhood side Liverpool in 2015.

Lambert saw the chant on Instagram, leaving a jokey comment which reads: "He's still got time to improve!"

A bonafide club legend, even if his departure stung at the time. Lambert never managed to score 21 Premier League goals by January like Haaland, though.

City failed to register a single shot on target against Southampton, who have won three cup ties under Nathan Jones despite being bottom of the Premier League table.

Guardiola admitted his side wasn't at the required level and deserved to be eliminated.

He said: "The better team won. We didn't play good, we didn't play well in the beginning. There are many games you can start not good and overcome and we didn't do it.

"When you are not prepared to play this game you arrive one inch late and don't score a goal. When you are prepared you score the goal.

"Today was a bad night, the opponent was better so we have to congratulate them. To win games you have to deserve it and tonight we didn't deserve it."

Southampton will now face Newcastle United in the semi-finals. The other semi-final will see Manchester United face Nottingham Forest.

The winners of those two ties will meet for the first piece of silverware this season at Wembley on February 26.
