VINE: Jonny Evans and Papiss Cisse appear to spit at each other

Shocking behaviour

“D’ya know what? They spit at each other,” announced commentator Michael Owen during the first half of Manchester United v Newcastle.

After a tough tackle, Papiss Cisse looked to kick out at United defender Jonny Evans who pursed his lips as if to spit at the striker.

The Senegalese then got to his feet and grabbed a hold of the Belfast man and appears to let fly with some spittle of his own.

Neither player was cautioned by the referee.

At half-time BT Sport pundit Steve McManaman seemed convinced that Cisse, at least, deliberately spat on his opponent.

“We talk about bad tackles, but that’s worse. It’s disgusting,” said McManaman.
