VS

Helsea will face Palmeiras in the Club World Cup final, looking to lift the only trophy they have not won since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003.

Abramovich took over at Stamford Bridge with the aim of dominating the world and, in Abu Dhabi today, can Chelsea make that dream come true.

The Blues lost in the final of their only previous appearance at the Club World Cup, beaten by another Brazilian side, Corinthians, in 2012.

Romelu Lukaku’s goal proved decisive in Wednesday’s semi-final win over Saudi side Al Hilal, while Palmeiras reached the final with a 2-0 win over Al Ahly.
