Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho hopes Los Angeles Galaxy will not take any chances with the fitness of their superstar signing David Beckham in California tonight.

An ankle injury looking set to deny Beckham his intended Galaxy debut and, although Mourinho insists his players would not be out to make Beckham´s injury any worse by going after him, he believes Galaxy coach Frank Yallop must think carefully before choosing to play him or not.

The Portuguese coach said: "When I was a child I heard dozens of stories of Eusebio, who was injured but had to play a certain game because of the cachet of the match. Pele, too, was always involved in tense situations. But there is a limit - a pain limit and a consequence limit."
