New Chelsea signing Emerson makes his club debut as the Blues take on Hull City. According to the BBC, Chelsea has scored 2.9 goals per game in FA Cup matches at Stamford Bridge since 1999, meaning it should be an exciting game for fans. Olivier Giroud also gets the start for the Blues with Alvaro Morata on the bench.

Riyad Mahrez meanwhile makes his return to the Leicester City lineup against Sheffield United after trying to force his way out of the club before the end of the January transfer window.

Mahrez spent ten days away from the club after not being transferred away, but manager Claude Puel has made Mahrez a surprise starter.
