Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has denied the Football Association charge brought against him for spitting at Newcastle United’s Papiss Cisse.

The Northern Ireland international issued a statement on Thursday to deny he had done anything wrong, but the FA chose to charge both players after they had allegedly breached FA Rule E1[a].

Cisse has accepted the charge after issuing a public apology, but Evans will have to wait until Saturday for a final decision, with an Independent Regulatory Commission meeting on Friday night to discuss the case.

The incident occured in the 38th minute of Wednesday’s clash at St. James’ Park after the pair came together close to the halfway line. Television pictures show Evans spiiting towards Cisse before the Senegal striker retaliated.

Goal understands that if Evans is found guilty, he will face a six-match ban while Cisse will be hit with a seven-match suspension after receiving a red card already this season.

Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal has publically backed his player, saying: “I cannot imagine that Jonny Evans could do something like that. I believe him, so the matter is done.”
