This lunch-time Chelsea welcome Newcastle United to Stamford Bridge for a Premier League fixture.

Ahead of the game we used our front-page poll to ask you to predict how the game would go.

As is the norm in such cases, we gave you three options to choose from:

? Chelsea to win
? Newcastle to win


? A draw

Ahead of the kick-off the result shows that a clear majority of you expect Chelsea to win, with that option taking 84% of the votes cast.

A further 11% of you are predicting that Rafael Benitez side will hang on for a draw, whilst 5% of the votes cast are predicting something of an upset with Newcastle to win.

Thank you for participating.

Our latest front-page poll asks for your opinion on what kind of reception Rafael Benitez will receive from the Chelsea faithful today.

As you are aware Rafael was in charge of Chelsea, as an interim manager, when Roberto Di Matteo was axed and led the club to Europa League glory.

My co-ed has written a piece on the return of Rafael to a former stomping ground, Click Here which is well worth a read.

Please, on this particular poll, use your vote wisely.
