The early Super Sunday game in the Premier League saw Manchester City return to the top of the table with a 2-0 victory away from home, but Newcastle were left feeling aggrieved after Cheick Tiote's stunning strike in the first half was ruled out for offside. The ball whistled past Yoan Gouffran, who was deemed to be in Joe Hart's line of vision, on its way into the top corner and Pardew simply couldn't understand the decision.

His Man City counterpart Manuel Pellegrini was thrilled with the win and was insisted he had no issue with Pardew, despite the pair clashing at half-time.

Liverpool won a thrilling encounter against Stoke in the second game, Brendan Rodgers' side ultimately sealing a 5-3 victory at the Britannia Stadium.

Luis Suarez took his season tally to 22 with two more goals and substitute Daniel Sturridge also got in on the act with the final goal of the game on his return from injury.

Rodgers was thrilled by the attacking talent on show, while Stoke manager Mark Hughes highlighted a dubious penalty call in the second half as the turning point in the match.

Meanwhile on Saturday Manchester United consigned last weekend's defeat to the past with a relatively comfortable victory over Swansea, just six days after Michael Laudrup's side had dumped United out of the FA Cup.

David Moyes was relieved after the game and felt the success was richly deserved, while Laudrup felt his side could have dealt with the opening goal much better. Click on both managers' names to see their post-match interviews.

The early Saturday match saw Chelsea briefly move to the top of the table with a fairly routine 2-0 win over Hull.

Jose Mourinho was full of praise for star winger Eden Hazard, who set the Blues on their way with the first goal of the game. Tigers boss Steve Bruce gives his views on the match in the same video.

There was a lot of activity at the foot of the league, including Sunderland climbing off the bottom of the table with an emphatic victory at Fulham. Adam Johnson claimed his first hat-trick to help Gus Poyet's side to a 4-1 victory and his manager was full of praise for the former Man City man. Rene Meulensteen, on the other hand, was left gutted and particularly unhappy at the way his team dealt with set-pieces.

West Ham were the other big winners at the 'wrong end' of the table as they bounced back from heavy cup defeats to win away at Cardiff. Carlton Cole and Mark Noble were on the scoresheet for the Hammers and new Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left with mixed emotions - encouraged by their second-half endeavour but ultimately disappointed with his defence.

Roberto Martinez watched his Everton side record a 2-0 home win over struggling Norwich and was thrilled with the way his squad coped with key absentees. Canaries chief Chris Hughton said his side's improved performance in the second period gives him confidence they can avoid dropping into the Sky Bet Championship.

Fellow strugglers West Brom suffered another defeat on the road as Southampton emerged 1-0 to the good over the Baggies. Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino claimed his side fully deserved the three points and counterpart Keith Downing admitted he was disappointed to end his spell as caretaker boss with a defeat.

Tottenham sit poised in fifth place after beating Crystal Palace 2-0 at White Hart Lane but their manager Tim Sherwood admits it wasn't a straightforward win as the away side's tactics took him by surprise. Palace boss Tony Pulis felt they didn't quite get the rub of the green but was nevertheless encouraged by his side's spirit and determination in defeat.
