Thursday he wants players to treat one

LONDON -- Manchester City moved provisionally top of the Premier League with a controversial 2-0 victory at Newcastle while Liverpool stayed in contention with a 5-3 win at Stoke as both teams benefited Sunday from contentious refereeing decisions. Goals from Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo secured Citys 10th consecutive win over the Magpies as Manuel Pellegrinis high-scoring team extended its unbeaten run in all competitions to 15 games. But the result did not reflect the intensity of a game overshadowed by referee Mike Jones decision to disallow Cheikh Tiotes apparent equalizer, ruling that Yoan Gouffran interfered with play in an offside position. Negredo secured Citys win in added time while league top scorer Luis Suarez scored twice for Liverpool and Steven Gerrard converted a disputed penalty. City won its third straight away game to climb one point above Chelsea in the standings ahead of Arsenals match at Aston Villa on Monday. If the Gunners win, they will move back to the top of the table. But Citys successful day was marred by Samir Nasri sustaining a knee injury and having to be carried off on a stretcher after a reckless tackle by Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, who escaped with a yellow card. Nasri was set to undergo scans on Monday, with the club fearing he may have sustained ligament damage. "Nasri has I think a serious injury to his knee, we will see tomorrow. I repeat it was a direct red card," City manager Manuel Pellegrini said. "Its his medial ligament. We will see tomorrow what has happened with him." Pellegrinis team has now won six consecutive league matches and scored a total of 94 goals in all competitions, more than its entire tally for last season. Utilizing its usual combination of quick passing and movement, City moved in front as David Silva released Aleksandar Kolarov on the left side before the Serbia defender sent a low cross for Dzeko to fire into the back of the net for his fifth league goal of the season. But Tiote and the whole crowd thought he had equalized when he fired a stunning shot into the top corner in the 34th minute. The linesmans flag stayed down but Jones went over to talk to his assistant before disallowing the goal, judging that Gouffran, standing in front of Joe Hart in an offside position, was interfering with play. A dejected Alan Pardew shook his head in disbelief while Newcastle fans booed the decision and started to sing "1-0 to the referee." "Were in an entertainment business and the guys hit a wonder goal that Joe Hart isnt going to save," Pardew said. "Im not thrilled with the referees answer when Ive asked for an explanation as I dont quite get how he can disallow a goal of that quality on the technical point he is using. Joe Hart is nowhere near it. It goes through a crowd of City players who are impairing his view." Pardew confronted Pellegrini after the incident, with the Newcastle manager apparently aiming an expletive-laced tirade at his counterpart. "I apologize for that," Pardew said later. Negredo put the game away after being sent clear by Milner. Tim Krul did well to save his first shot but the ball ricochet off the keeper and Negredo shot into an empty goal. At Stoke, where Liverpool claimed its first ever league win, manager Brendan Rodgers acknowledged that his team was awarded a soft penalty after Marc Wilson sent Raheem Sterling tumbling in the box despite little contact. Gerrard converted from the spot to put the Reds back in front after they had squandered a two-goal lead. "I thought it was soft if I am being honest," Rodgers said. "I would call that a Spanish penalty, it is one where the attacker goes into the defender, who does not get the ball, and the contact puts him over. If we get that wee bit of fortune, we will take it." Liverpool trails City by five points and has one more point than fifth-place Everton in the race for the final Champions League spot. Suarez grabbed a brace and has now scored 22 league goals while Daniel Sturridge came off the bench to score after a nearly seven-week layoff with a sprained ankle. Liverpool allowed Stoke to rally from a 2-0 deficit when former Reds Peter Crouch and Charlie Adam cancelled out Ryan Shawcross own goal and Suarezs first strike. Gerrard then put his team back in front after the interval before Suarez gave the visitors breathing space from Sturridges assist. "Daniel Sturridge is a great player who helps the team. It is a long time we did not play with him," said Suarez, whose partnership with the England player had been deadly before Sturridges injury. Jonathan Walters pulled one back to ensure a nervous finish for the visitors before Sturridge secured the win two minutes later when he retrieved the ball near the goal line after his initial effort was saved, juggled it and slotted home from close range.

LOUIS -- Getting drafted second overall has got to be a heady feeling. Greg Robinson checked any ego at the door, learning quickly how to fit in with the St. Louis Rams. The Rams plan on Robinson beginning his career at guard instead of tackle, where he starred at Auburn. The 6-foot-5, 332-pound Robinson has been a willing convert at a position he last played in high school in Thibodaux, Louisiana. "Everything happens faster," Robinson said. "I can get my hands on them faster, so its something that I think I can grow into. Sooner or later, its going to come." Running back Tre Mason ran behind Robinson on Auburns national championship runner-up team last year and has loads of confidence in his fellow rookie. The Tigers totalled 64 rushing touchdowns the last two seasons and the Rams anticipate Mason will be a change-of-pace option behind Zac Stacey. "When hes lead blocking for me, we love it," Mason said. "I know he can play anywhere on that O-line. Really, you could line him up at quarterback." Robinson could eventually move outside, given left tackle Jake Long is in the final year of his contract. Long is rehabbing from knee surgery and said Tuesday he expects to be ready for the opener. Robinson can draw on the experience of teammate Rodger Saffold, also a left tackle in college and at the start of his NFL career, too. "Yeah, he told me it was hard for him at the beginning, but something he got accustomed to," Robinson said. "Its something Im really going to have to work on and really learn in and out. Im sure theyre not goingg to play anybody thats not ready.dddddddddddd" Saffold started at three spots last year and will be the right guard, joking "at least I know where Ill be." The Rams re-signed him to a free-agent deal after he failed a physical in Oakland related to a shoulder injury, and hes comfortable playing guard for the foreseeable future. "Yeah, cant fight it," Saffold said. "Just got to roll with the punches. The goal is the same, its just one slot inside." Besides the physical factor, Robinson is adjusting to a much deeper playbook with even more wrinkles inside than at tackle. Robinson said Auburn perfected a "select few" plays. "Its a lot for him, but the good thing is hes listening to everybody," Saffold said. "We expect a lot out of him and hes coming along." Long, the first overall pick in 2008 by the Dolphins, has been doing a lot of individual work this week plus "stuff inside that you dont see," coach Jeff Fisher said. The Rams anticipate hell be a full participant by the middle of training camp. "Every week we try to introduce something more," Long said. "Im really excited and happy with how Im progressing." The 29-year-old Long said hes been rehabbing five or six hours a day for several weeks with the exception of a 10-day trip with his wife to Paris and Barcelona. "I wanted to do it and didnt want to do it at the same time," Long said. "The trainers told me I had to get out of the room for a few days. They were long days and they still are, but Im glad to do it."
