WhoScored: Zabaleta-Sterling a key battle

Benitez hoping to bring back trophy

Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez is eager to bring the FIFA Club World Cup to England for only the second time - and repeat his feat of winning the competition with Inter Milan two years ago.

• Blog: Are Torres goals a false dawn?

Benitez's Inter side beat Congolese side TP Mazembe in the final in the United Arab Emirates in 2010 - which turned out to be his final game in charge of the Serie A side before being sacked. Now he will look to emulate Manchester United's achievement of 2008 and win the title for a Premier League side.

Chelsea begin their campaign on Thursday with a game against Mexican side Monterrey in Yokohama, and they will then face either South American champions Corinthians or Egypt's Al-Ahly in the third place play-off or final on Sunday.

"With the economic crisis around the world everybody is under pressure," Benitez said. "I don't have a problem with pressure. The future is the next game and the one after that.

"It's a massive competition. Everybody here has the same idea as me - to win every trophy. It doesn't matter if we are in the Champions League or not. It's a great opporunity and we're here to win. We won our last two games and we're playing well."

Fernando Torres ended a personal Premier League goal drought of 12-and-a-half hours with a brace in Saturday's 3-1 win at Sunderland, and Benitez hopes it is the start of the striker's return to form.

"Fernando is in a good position now because the team is creating more chances and because the team is doing well," Benitez added. "I can communicate with him in a different way and work with him but the main thing is his team-mates are playing well."

Meanwhile, Oscar believes success for the Blues at the Club World Cup will provide a major boost to their Premier League title hopes.

"For Chelsea, we are representing Europe and we are going there with a determination to do it well," he told World Soccer Digest. "We are going to try to win this competition this year. Every title is important for Chelsea. If we win it, it is going to give us so much more confidence and strength for the rest of the season.

"In Brazil, this has always been seen as the opportunity for our clubs to play one of the big European teams. It's the chance to test themselves against a big team from Europe and to go and show their football to the world.

"For years, it was the only way they could face a stronger team, a different team from a different culture. The South American teams have always taken this competition seriously but I think all the big clubs will go to Japan this year and give everything."

Oriol Romeu was ruled out of Chelsea's trip to Japan after injuring his knee against Sunderland.
