MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester City ended Evertons unbeaten run in the Premier League this season with a 3-1 win on Saturday as Alvaro Negredo and Sergio Aguero scored superb goals in an entertaining game featuring plenty of chances. City bounced back from two consecutive losses in all competitions to move two points behind league leader Arsenal, which has a game in hand. Romelu Lukaku gave the visitors the lead but Negredo quickly cancelled out the Belgian strikers opener after a flowing collective move before Aguero handed City the advantage just before halftime. Aguero then added the third from the spot in the 69th minute after Tim Howard tipped his penalty onto the post but the ball bounced in off the American goalkeeper. Everton, which was the only team to remain unbeaten before the game, matched Citys pace early in the game but quickly faded after the interval. Criticized for his recent mistakes both with his club and England, goalkeeper Joe Hart kept his place in the starting lineup even though City manager Manuel Pellegrini made several changes to his side, with Pablo Zabaleta, Joleon Lescott, Aleksandar Kolarov, David Silva, James Milner and Alvaro Negredo coming in. Everton got off to a strong start and looked dangerous immediately as Lukaku threatened Citys defence at the conclusion of his teams first move. Fresh from consecutive losses against Aston Villa and Bayern Munich, City had its first real opportunity in the seventh minute after a soft free kick was given against Phil Jagielka for a foul on Sergio Aguero, but Aleksandar Kolarovs curled shot went inches wide. Kolarov missed the target again a few minutes later when he sent his header from a corner over the bar before Hart diverted a fine effort from Lukaku in the 15th minute. Lukau then made the most of Citys poor defending as he beat the offside trap to open the scoring after skipping past Lescott and sliding the ball under Hart. But the Everton fans celebrations were short-lived, with City levelling the score in the next minute when Negredo scored a goal similar to Lukakus from Yaya Toures excellent through pass. The game continued in a fast pace with both teams combining well from end to end. City had another great chance in the 26th minute when Fernandinho and Silva managed to open some space for Aguero in front of goal, only for the striker to bend the ball wide at the far post. Aguero could again have given City the lead after Negredo opened up the Toffees defence but completely missed the ball in the 39th. The Argentine player finally made amends for all his wasted chances when he fired in David Silvas pass past Howard from a tight angle in the 45th minute. City had the upper hand early in the second half but suffered a blow when Kolarov, pushed in the back by Steven Naismith, collided with teammate Matija Nastasic and had to leave the pitch with his face bloodied. He was replaced by Gael Clichy, while Naismith escaped any punishment. City however kept controlling the game and was awarded a penalty in the 69th minute after Zabaleta was fouled by Seamus Coleman in the area. After being booked for protesting, Howard almost denied Agueros shot but the ball hit the post and bounced off him before ending in the net. Jordan Staal Jersey .

Kerry wants to answer your emails at email@example.com. Hi Kerry, I am sure you will get a ton of emails on this one. Last night, the Kings went up 2-1 on the Sharks around eight minutes remaining. My question with this goal - Is Justin Williams allowed to hit the goalie with his stick? Cant this be considered goalie interference? I am a Ducks fan waiting to see my next opponent. I really think the Sharks were cheated here. The NHL says this type of play is non-reviewable. This excuse just seems like an easy way out from a judgment call. Thanks,Jake Kevari Jake: The L.A. Kings greasy second goal should have been disallowed by referee Chris Lee as per rule 69.6 when Justin Williams used his stick to push Alex Stalock, set in a statuesque pose, that resulted in both the puck and the toe of Stalocks left skate to cross the goal line into the net. It appeared that the referee was purely focused on the puck that became partially visible under the left skate of Alex Stalock after the goalie made the initial save. If referee Lee taken had taken into account the action of Justin Williams pushing Stalock from the front of the goal crease with his hockey stick or subsequently had the opportunity to utilize video review I would hope that a different decision on the play would have been rendered. Many fans who follow me on twitter @kfraserthecall (Kings Fans perhaps?) could not comprehend that the action of Justin Williams pushing Alex Stalock with his stick became a goalie interference violation. Language contained in Rule 69 defines contact, whether incidental or otherwise, to mean any contact that is made between or among a goalkeeper and attacking player(s), whether by means of a stick or any part of the body. Some had even more difficulty accepting that Rule 69.6 applied on this play since Stalock was not knocked completely into the back of the net. Rule 69.6 reads; "In the event that a goalkeeper has been pushed into the net together with the puck by an attacking player after making a stop, the goal will be disallowed." To simplify this play, Alex Stalock made an initial save on his knees wheen Robin Regehr shot the puck from the top left side faceoff circle.dddddddddddd Stalocks lower body remained stationary inside the top right side of his goal crease after the puck was gobbled up in his pads. Referee Chris Lee attacked the net straddling the goal line with the whistle in a ready position near his mouth demonstrating some intent to blow the whistle and kill the play; that is until he saw the puck peek out from under Stalocks left skate blade and pad. The refs body posture and head position indicates that he was intently focused on the puck from this moment forward. Freeze frame that visual picture in your mind for a second! If in this moment, Justin Williams dove or crashed into Alex Stalock resulting in the puck entering the net, I would think most everyone would agree that "goalie interference" had been committed and the referee should disallow the goal. The exact same illegal outcome was achieved when Justin Williams used his hockey stick to push Stalock within his goal crease and off his set-stationary position which caused both the puck and the goalies left skate to cross the goal line and enter the net as demonstrated by the overhead net-cam shot. To disallow the goal under Rule 69.6 would be purely academic at this point had the referee been focused more on the action taking place at the front of the net as opposed to the puck. Ideally, the whistle (or intent to blow the whistle) should have been exercised once Justin Williams began pushing Alex Stalock with his stick, if not before! Jake, video review can only be utilized in eight specific situations as listed in Rule 38.4. At the present time interference on the goalkeeper is not one of them. I have continually stated that referees must have the ability to review their initial decision whenever contact with the goalkeeper is in question. This should be initiated by the officials on the ice, the video goal judge or through a coachs challenge. However the review is initiated, I strongly recommend that a referee(s) makes the final call after personally reviewing the play in question on a monitor in the timekeepers box. Look for expanded use of video review in some form next season. We can only hope they get it right.
