LONDON - Chelsea striker Diego Costa will miss Saturdays crucial English Premier League game against title rival Manchester City after being handed a three-match ban for stamping on an opponents leg.The Spain international contested the English Football Associations decision to charge him with violent conduct for treading on the right ankle of Liverpools Emre Can during the second leg of the League Cup semifinal on Tuesday.The FAs independent commission upheld the charge on Friday and Costa, the Premier Leagues top scorer, will be suspended for Chelseas next three league games starting with the visit of second-place City to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea will pull eight points clear of City with a win.Costa will also miss an away game at Aston Villa and a home match against Everton. His next game is likely to be the Champions League last-16 first leg against Paris Saint-Germain on Feb. 17.The incident involving Costa and Can wasnt seen by match officials but was caught on video. A charge followed as part of the FAs fast-tracked procedures.Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said Costas movement toward Can was absolutely accidental, saying his player puts his foot there when hes looking to the ball.Mourinho, who was fined this week for saying there was a campaign against his side, cancelled his regular pre-match media conference on Friday.The absence of Costa, who has 17 league goals in his debut year at Stamford Bridge, is a huge loss for Chelsea, with the striker adding a cutting edge that was lacking in the team last season.However, his physical and often confrontational approach has got him in trouble this season, earning him 10 yellow cards two for Spain and eight for Chelsea.He is a great player, a very important player. He is not an easy character, City manager Manuel Pellegrini said. But I hope, for him, this punishment ... will be good for him to change a little bit in the future.He doesnt need to do it that way because he is very good player, a top player.Mourinho will likely start veteran striker Didier Drogba up front against City. Loic Remy is another option as the lone striker. Joe Williams Jersey . Carey Price made 27 saves for Montreal (30-21-6) for his fourth shutout of the year and second in four games. David Desharnais added an empty netter for the Canadiens. Reto Berra stopped 25 shots for Calgary (21-28-7). Solomon Thomas Jersey . The Blue Jackets got goals from Cam Atkinson, Nick Foligno, Boone Jenner and R.J.

LOUIS -- When Braves second baseman Tyler Pastornicky backpedaled into shallow right field to catch the popup and Jason Heyward didnt arrive fast enough to take charge, Kolten Wong got the green light. Marquise Goodwin Jersey . - The Detroit Lions have placed tight end Brandon Pettigrew on injured reserve, ending his season.The next 48 hours may be significant to determining if the Canadian Football Leagues 2014 training camp, and possibly regular season, starts on schedule, as executives and legal counsel for the league and the Canadian Football League Players Union are set to meet in Toronto Thursday and Friday for critical talks to finally find common ground on a new collective bargaining agreement. With the two sides making little progress over the last six months, however, it appears the players union is prepared for another deadlock. "The (PAs strike) ballots are ready to be mailed out," said a source with knowledge of the negotiations, but who spoke on conditions of anonymity. Sources have told TSN that the CFLPA has steadily prepared for the possibility of a strike vote for weeks, by accumulating addresses of its members, and reviewing labour laws in provinces with CFL teams. "This is not a negotiation tactic - this is something the players feel they need to explore if no progress is made Thursday and Friday," the source said. The CFLs current CBA ends May 29. Talks between the league and players are poised on a tipping point because neither side can agree on functional revenue-sharing model. When the two sides met previously in Toronto weeks ago, talks eventually began leaning towards general discussion of revenue-sharing possiibilities.dddddddddddd League representatives said they would review the developments, only to return later insisting that discussions on any revenue-sharing model could go no further. The CFL apparently has a counter-proposal prepared for the players - different from the reported $100,000 yearly salary cap increase over the life of a new eight-year CBA - but will not reveal the new bottom line unless the players abandon any revenue-sharing model. Apart the disagreement on the feasibility of any revenue-sharing models, previous talks have stalled over the issue of financial transparency: The players have requested the CFL reveal all its numbers, but the league has remained reluctant. "If the owners are anticipating more money and more deals over the course of a new CBA then the players would like to know what exactly (the owners) are anticipating," the source explained. If talks hit an impasse again by the weekend, the union will prepare its members for a strike vote. Some provinces in Canada, Quebec in particular, require strike votes take place after a CBA expires. Nevertheless, the union will encourage its members, regardless of particular labour laws, to stay off the field." "Its going to be tough to prepare for a season, unless one team is prepared to play against itself," the source added.
