Chelsea's Lampard desperate to face Man Utd

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard wants to play on Sunday against Manchester United in the Community Shield.

The Mirror says Lampard will urge Chelsea's medical staff to let him risk playing against Manchester United on Sunday with a broken toe.

But Jose Mourinho is set to turn down the request and tell the England midfielder he cannot afford to aggravate the problem and miss the start of the Premier League campaign.
