Reports are out claiming that Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has rejected his spitting charge.
Evans has denied the charge given to him by the FA for allegedly spitting at Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse.
A short statement issued on the FA’s official Twitter account reads: “Manchester United’s Jonny Evans denies FA charge in relation to incident involving Papiss Cisse.
“Independent Regulatory Commission hearing tonight, decision expected tomorrow [Saturday]”.
In contrast, Cisse has accepted the charge and now looks set to serve a seven-match ban.
