Harry Kane will face no action after the incident involving Cesar Azpilicueta

Harry Kane will face no further action for his altercation with Cesar Azpilicueta during Tottenham's 2-0 defeat at Chelsea.

Kane was seen motioning his head in the direction of Azpilicueta, with referee Andre Marriner forced to intervene as words were exchanged.

The England captain could have faced a potential ban for violent conduct but Marriner reported he saw the clash, meaning the striker will not face retrospective action.

Kane is therefore free to play in Saturday's north London derby against Arsenal as Tottenham attempt to snap a run of two straight defeats.

Former referee Dermot Gallagher told Sky Sports News it was not a red-card offence while Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino put the incident down to Kane's competitive nature.

"We were frustrated, we want to win, we show our character," said Pochettino.

"Things that happen that we don't know because it's impossible from outside the pitch to see what is going on inside. But that is football.
