Harry Kane will not miss this weekend’s north London derby against Arsenal despite an altercation with Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta in midweek.

The Tottenham striker appeared to move his head towards Azpilicueta during Wednesday’s clash, and there has been talk of a potential ban.

However, BBC Sport has confirmed Kane will face no further punishment as the officials saw the incident during the game and took no action.

Chelsea ran out 2-0 winners at Stamford Bridge thanks to a Pedro strike Kieran Trippier’s disastrous own goal.

Spurs failed to land a single shot on target and lost more ground on Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.

Getting a result against Arsenal is now vital for Tottenham, who risk missing out on a place in the top four if they do not turn their form around quickly.

Thankfully Kane won’t miss the derby. The 25-year-old scored on his return to action against Burnley but drew a blank at Chelsea.

He will be confident about finding the net against Arsenal, one of his favourite opponents.
