Manchester City moved into the top spot in the Premier League with a 5-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.
David Silva scored the opener from close range just before halftime before Sergio Aguero scored from the penalty spot after Andreas Weimann handled the ball in the area.
Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert added there was "no point" complaining to the referee.
"That's never a handball. What the linesman saw there I do not know," Lambert said. You have got to be 100 percent sure to give that and he saw something I think 50,000 other people never saw."
Carlos Tevez added City's third from the spot when Barry Bannan was also judged to have handled the ball before Aguero fired his second and Tevez did the same in a resounding win at the Etihad Stadium.
"I am very satisfied with this performance," said City boss Roberto Mancini. "In the first half we played well created a lot of chances but we were too soft when we had chances to score. But we played well and this is the most important thing. In the last two games I think we changed something. In our mind we found a good spirit, like last year."
Mancini confirmed striker Mario Balotelli, who was absent from the matchday squad for a second successive week, had suffered a back injury in training.
Luis Suarez scored a brace as Liverpool beat Wigan 3-0 at Anfield.
The Uruguay international beat Ali Al Habsi twice in the second half with strikes from the middle of the area as Liverpool moved closer to the top half of the table, with Jose Enrique's tap-in sealing the win for Reds boss Brendan Rodgers.
Rodgers hailed Suarez as a "master marksman" after the striker produced another devastating display.
"Luis is a very big part of the team. His first goal was a wonderful finish with a great weight of pass from young Raheem (Sterling)," said the Reds boss. "He finished it great and for the second one there was a lovely pass from Enrique and a nice little off-the-shoulder run and finish."
Wigan midfielder Ben Watson may require surgery after breaking his leg in a freak collision during the defeat.
Goals for Rickie Lambert and Jason Puncheon helped to seal a vital 3-1 win for struggling Southampton against QPR at Loftus Road.
Lambert headed in from close range before Puncheon added the second from 20 yards, with Junior Hoilett's second-half header not enough for Mark Hughes' side, as Anton Ferdinand's own goal in the 83rd minute compounded QPR's woes.
Asked if it was the worst QPR performance of his time in charge, Mark Hughes said, "Yes, without a shadow of a doubt. Today there was not that intensity. We weren't on the front foot, we weren't anticipating anything, we weren't aggressive enough. All the fundamentals that you need to build a performance (were not there)."
Reading came from behind to earn its first Premier League win this season with a 2-1 win over Everton at the Madejski Stadium.
Poor defending by Reading allowed Steven Naismith to open the scoring for the Toffees before Adam Le Fondre marked his return to the Royals side by equalizing with a glancing header.
Everton's Seamus Coleman then conceded a penalty which Le Fondre duly converted to earn a much-needed three points for coach Brian McDermott.
"Obviously it is a relief, I'm just so pleased for the players tonight, that has been coming for quite some time," Reading boss Brian McDermott said.
Elsewhere, Swansea beat Newcastle 2-1 St James' Park thanks in part to a blunder by Magpies keeper Tim Krul.
Krul miscued a clearance straight to Pablo Hernandez, who picked out Michu with a great cross, allowing the Spaniard to head the ball past Krul and into the net.
Jonathan de Guzman sealed the win late in the game when he followed up substitute Danny Graham's blocked strike with Demba Ba's stoppage time score not enough for Newcastle.
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew blamed the loss on a short-handed squad, with striker Papiss Cisse missing because of a wrangle with the Senegal Football Federation, Fabricio Coloccini suspended and Jonas Gutierrez and Yohan Cabaye injured.
"Jonas was so close," Pardew said. "We were deciding on whether to play him yesterday and we felt with the injury he had, it was too risky, so he was very, very close. Then we had Papiss taken away from us, we had Shola (Ameobi) only arriving yesterday afternoon (from international duty with Nigeria), so we had a lot of things that didn't work for us this week."
