Frank Lampard's fitness will not be risked on Chelsea's tour of Asia, boss Jose Mourinho has said.

"I don't want to risk," Mourinho said.

"It is such a long pre-season we don't need to risk, especially on these pitches, which are not the best quality pitches. If on Sunday he is not 100 per cent, I am not risking him.

"He is an important player for us."
