Mauricio Pochettino has come to the defence of captain Kane despite the Tottenham captain appearing to headbutt Cesar Azpilicueta during Wednesday's defeat to Cheslea. 

The English striker appeared to aim his head in the direction of the Blues defender in the first half of the 2-0 Premier League defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Referee Andre Marriner did not act on the incident but insisted he did see it and therefore Kane will face no further punishment.
