Harry Kane escapes three-match ban for his 'headbutt' on Cesar Azpilicueta

Harry Kane escapes three-match ban for his 'headbutt' on Cesar Azpilicueta

Harry Kane could miss Tottenham's clash with Liverpool if referee Andre Marriner reports that he didn't see an apparent headbutt incident between Kane and Cesar Azpilicueta during Spurs' 2-0 loss against Chelsea on Wednesday evening. However, Spurs remain well-placed in the Champions League after beating Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in the first round of 16 leg last month.

"And I think the team is changing the perception that Tottenham was a little bit soft".

However, Marriner included the incident in his report, indicating that the match officiating team had seen it, and that means that the FA can not take action.

Pochettino has accepted a Football Association charge of improper conduct after confronting referee Mike Dean after Saturday's defeat at Burnley and is now waiting to discover his punishment.

Pochettino is now facing a touchline ban.

Pochettino added: "I don't care about the pressure to play against Arsenal, Chelsea or Burnley - It's the same feeling for me. I went to the gaffer's office and told him I didn't feel comfortable and wanted to leave for Germany", Son told Standard Sport.

Ozil has started only 14 of Arsenal's 28 Premier League games this season, often sidelined due to injury or sickness, while Emery has also benched him in favour of other players in some games.

"The most important thing for me is if the player can be OK for tomorrow and has the desire to play". I would be more anxious if he didn't show that character or shows the message that he cares. "It's unbelievable, but that's the era we're living in". All together we need to create a very good atmosphere to help the team to win. "That is no doubt and there is no debate".

Asked if he was concerned, Pochettino said: "I am not afraid".

I am more than grateful [to him] - it is hard to say. "But we were so close".
