A three-man FA panel is set to look at the incident on Thursday and decide whether Tottenham’s England captain should be charged retrospectively.

Any suspension would rule him out of Saturday’s derby with arch-rivals Arsenal.

Referee Marriner seemed to miss the first-half drama and did not book either Kane or Azpilicueta.

But SunSport’s former Premier League referee Mark Halsey insisted: “Kane was lucky not to be sent off. If referee Andre Marriner reports that he missed the action, Kane could face retrospective action

“He clearly moved his head into Azpilicueta’s face and pictures show he made contact.”

Kane had a bust-up with the opposing captain as the pair came together after a strong challenge on Eden Hazard.

The pair exchanged words before Kane seemed to push his head into Azpilicueta’s face.

Chelsea went onto win 2-0 at Stamford Bridge, Pedro scoring a brilliant solo strike and Kieran Trippier a horror own goal.

Fans reacted on Twitter as they suggested Kane was lucky to remain on the pitch after his headbutt.

One said: “Soooo Kane …red card ….oh no wait …it’s England’s favourite son …so his headbutt must of been friendly.”

Another wrote: “How did Harry Kane not get a red card??!!!”

Another added: “Harry Kane just tried to headbutt Azpilicueta. Stay classy Tottenham.”

#Kane appeared to aim a slight head butt at #Azpilicueta there. This could turn into the Battle of the Bridge from 2016 at this rate. #CHETOT

Another Lloris howler almost costs Spurs. A wayward pass finds Pedro and Higuain ends up curling just wide. Let off for Spurs, who haven’t been great so far. #THFC #COYS

Bit of handbags after Kane chased Luiz down after Spurs returned possession. Kane looked to put his head in on Azpilicueta but got away with it.

Seems as though, Harry Kane leaned with the head a bit on Azpilicueta. Boos coming in towards him from the Chelsea fans now. Tottenham striker a tad fortunate there. #CHETOT

Kane lost his cool there.

All started when Azpilicueta said ‘you can’t say my name properly.’
