Jonny Evans has been charged by the FA for spitting at Papiss Cisse and he has until tomorrow to respond. If he is found guilty, FA disciplinary guidelines say that he should be banned for six games, twice as long as a player guilty of violent conduct.

Evans released a statement this morning, before he was charged, protesting his innocence.

With time running out at St James Park, Wayne Rooney chased down a ball in the box, but it looked like a lost cause. However, he did enough to put off the Newcastle defender, forcing goalkeeper Tim Krul in to mistakenly passing the ball straight to Ashley Young. United's winger did well to hold his nerve and the game was won.

During United's 2-0 victory over Sunderland at the weekend, fans were audibly frustrated when Jonny Evans passed the ball back to David de Gea in the first half.

United had just had a corner and passed the ball back to Daley Blind on the half-way line, which was frustrating enough. It was even more frustrating when he then passed back to Evans deep in to our half.
