Rafael Benitez has handed in-form Fernando Torres a starting berth up front in the FIFA Club World Cup semi-finals, after the Spaniard rediscovered his goalscoring form with doubles against FC Nordsjaelland and Sunderland respectively.

Gary Cahill also returns to the back-four, meaning that Brazilian David Luiz moves into midfield alongside Jon Obi Mikel after impressing during a short stint there against the Danish side.
