European champions Chelsea outclassed Mexican side Monterrey 3-1 at the Club World Cup in Japan on Thursday to set up a mouthwatering final clash with Brazilian giants Corinthians. 

Strikes by Juan Mata (2nd left) and Fernando Torres (top centre) plus a Chavez own goal gave Chelsea a 3-1 World Club Cup victory over Mexico's Monterrey, whose only goal came from De Nigris in added time.
