Chelsea are awaiting advice from Fifa over travelling to Tokyo for the Club World Cup after an earthquake off the coast of Japan on Friday, reports The Guardian. The European champions are due to travel on Saturday evening after their Premier League game at Sunderland, but are understood to be waiting for confirmation from football's governing body after a strong earthquake centred off the coast of north-eastern Japan shook buildings as far away as Tokyo on Friday and triggered a one-metre tsunami in an area devastated by last year's Fukushima disaster.

The Blues are due to face the Mexican side Monterrey or the South Korean team Ulsan Hyundai in a semi-final in Yokohama on Thursday 13 December, with the final to take place at the same venue three days later
