Cisse accepted the FA's charge regarding a spitting incident during Wednesday's match against Manchester United and he will serve a seven-match ban, according to Sky Sports.

Cisse was caught on video splitting at Manchester United defenseman Jonny Evans, who appeared to have spit at Cisse first (Evans was also charged). It's a rather extensive ban given the incident, but Cisse accepted the charge and will not be able to play until May 9 against West Brom.

Cisse was charged by the FA on Thursday after being caught on video spitting at Manchester United's Jonny Evans on Wednesday.

Evans was also charged with a spitting incident, and the two could be facing a suspension if their appeals, should they choose to submit one, are denied. Cisse has been playing very well of late, netting twice in his last four matches to increase his league total to 11, which puts him seventh in the Premier League.

Cisse could be gone for up to a month after leaving for the Africa Cup of Nations.

The loss is a big one for Newcastle, as Cisse has been their most consistent attacking threat this season. Ayoze Perez will likely lead the line in Cisse's absence.

Cisse returned to training Friday and he is expected to play Sunday against Sunderland despite dealing with a heavy cold, the Chronicle reports.

Cisse is currently tied for sixth in the Premier League with seven goals this season, though it's worth noting that they've come in just four matches.

Cisse came on in the 53rd minute and scored twice in the second half to lead Newcastle to a 2-1 win over Chelsea on Saturday.

Cisse incredibly has seven goals this season in just nine appearances, thanks to three separate two-goal outings, which leaves him with fewer goals than only Sergio Aguero, Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez.

Cisse, who has missed the last two games due to a knee injury, will have a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's Premier League match against Liverpool, manager Alan Pardew said Friday. "The only slight issue I have is with Papiss Cisse and is he going to be fit," he said. "We are in a very similar position to where we were at Tottenham (last weekend), so we will have to wait and see."

Cisse's return would surely be good news for fantasy owners, as the matchup against Liverpool is an enticing one from a scoring perspective, despite their home clean sheet last weekend against Hull City.
