Newcastle boss lan Pardew has a word with Mike Jones

Newcastle's Cheick Tiote had a goal ruled out on a contentious offside call, while many felt the home side's Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa should have been sent off for a crude challenge on City's Samir Nasri.

There were other flashpoints during the game too, not least on the touchline where Newcastle boss Alan Pardew had some choice words for his City counterpart, Manuel Pellegrini, and in the latest list of referee appointments issued by the Premier League, Jones is only named as the fourth official at Saturday's game between Sunderland and Southampton.
