Player smacks ref in face -- by accident

[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Newcastle's Moussa Sissoko slapped referee Mike Jones in the face, sending Jones to the grass with a bloody nose, but escaped punishment.

Sissoko was standing over Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga and while trying to swat Gazzaniga's hand from his leg followed through and nailed Jones, who stuffed some tissue in his nostril and carried without a grudge.
