Chelsea will not ban fans from displaying banners against Rafa Benitez this weekend.

The club said they will not stop fans continuing their protests against the former Liverpool boss after writing to Chelsea Supporters Group this week.

A Chelsea official said: "I would like to make it clear the club does not have a policy of banning or censoring banners other than those which are threatening, offensive, discriminatory or would obstruct the view of others.

"In the past year supporters have freely displayed banners and signs expressing a range of opinions without club intervention. There has been no change to this policy."
