Mike Jones will not referee in the Premier League this weekend after last Sunday's stormy clash between Newcastle and Manchester City.

The Chester official took charge of Sunday's clash, with a number of his decisions coming under scrutiny.

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, 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.
