Interim manager Rafael Benitez has revealed how he will use Club World Cup glory in Japan to inspire Chelsea to an astonishing fightback in the Barclays Premier League.
The European champions could find themselves 13 points adrift of Manchester United in the league and seven behind Manchester City by the time they face Corinthians for the world title in Yokohama on Sunday.
But, should they emerge victorious, Benitez plans to repeat a speech that proved the catalyst for his Valencia side's Primera Liga triumph in 2003-04. He said: "People have asked me questions about whether it's a two-horse race. But, realistically, with three points for a game, if you win two or three games in a row, you have more confidence."
