Yokohama: Interim Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez goes into the Club World Cup final against Corinthians on Sunday hoping for a win to placate fans who have continued to boo him at the Japan tournament.
A 3-1 semi-final win over Mexican side Monterrey Thursday was Chelsea's third straight victory in all competitions. A total of 12 goals have been scored, with five of those coming from the much-maligned Fernando Torres.
The good run of form has so far failed to silence the Chelsea faithful, who still harbour a grudge from Benitez's time as Liverpool manager. Booing was noticeable when he was shown on the big screen during the match in Yokohama.
