LONDON (AP) When two English Premier League opponents spat at each other, the television evidence seemed clear.

Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse apologized on Thursday for spitting at Jonny Evans, but the Manchester United defender denied any wrongdoing in the incident.

Video replays showed the pair spitting at each other on Wednesday during United's 2-0 win after Cisse reacted angrily to a tackle by Evans.
