The European champions not only remain in all four competitions but will also travel to Japan in mid-December for the annual FIFA Club World Cup to compete against the best of Asia, Africa and South America after winning last season’s UEFA Champions League.

However, according to Sky Sports, Di Matteo does not want to put too much emphasis on the matter.

It will certainly put a strain a team,” said the Italian. “Because it is a trip to the other side of the world with different time zones while the Premier League is still playing on.

We will have to deal with that. But we have got a big enough squad that I think we should be able to cope with it.

Chelsea, who are currently third in the Premier League, three points behind Manchester United, travel to in-form West Brom on Saturday, a fixture that was Andre Villas-Boas’ last as the Blues manager earlier this year. Three days later Chelsea face a crunch Champions League tie in Turin against Italian giants Juventus.
