The first round of voting is over as we look to find Chelsea`s best starting XI, in our opinions. It wouldn`t have taken a rocket scientist to work out who the first pick would be.

We gave you five players to pick from.

⦁ Pedro
⦁ Eden Hazard
⦁ Charly Musonda Jr
⦁ Kenedy
⦁ Willian

In these polls, the first pick is generally obvious, it`s always the second and third rounds that provide the interest. Anyway, given his picture is at the top of the article, our latest entrant into the best starting XI is?Eden Hazard. The tricky Belgian collected 79% of the votes cast. Hazard has been on top form since recovering from a broken ankle in the summer, and long may it continue, at least whilst he`s at Chelsea.

In second place came Pedro with 10% of the votes. The Spaniard has fallen victim to Antonio Conte`s frequent formation changes this season, but when he`s on the field, he always gives 100%.

Third place went to another Belgian, this time in the form of Charly Musonda Jr. His total vote came in at 7%. The youngster has recently signed a new contract with the club and committed his future to the Blues, so big respect for that. His temperament got the better of him earlier in the season following a twitter outburst about not being picked, but he appears to have knuckled down and can look forward to a bright future.

Having not made it into one of the wing back positions, Kenedy was given another chance to make the team in a position he can also play. It was fourth for him as he collected 3% of the votes. Bringing up the rear in the vote was Willian with just 1% of the vote.

We now move onto the second round minus Hazard as our front page poll now looks find the second choice of attacking midfielder. As ever we ask you to use your vote wisely.
