Toure hopes the Football Association will show leniency, as the officials await the arrival of Howard Webb’s referee report into the match on Sunday.
The Ivory Coast international said: “I apologise for this moment, and I regret my actions.
“Chelsea were winning and were starting to waste time, and I was not happy with that, which is why I went to Mikel and had some words with him.
“Then Lampard came in and maybe made the thing bigger than it was, but that is part of football.”
Toure maintained: “I do not think so [will get banned]. When they look at the tape, they will see I have done nothing wrong.
“When you are a player like me, I have had a lot of games, but do not choose to do that type of thing.
“The people who run football know who is bad and they know that I am always trying to do my best for the club, the team and the fans as well.
“It can happen to anybody, though. You can make a mistake in any job, or do something bad.
“That is why you need to apologise, which I have done.
“You do not need to make it bigger.”
