CHELSEA make the long trip to Hull as they look to book their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
Frank Lampard‘s Blues have been inconsistent in recent weeks and will be keen to avoid a potential upset against the Championship playoff chasers.
Hull have narrowly lost their last two league matches and have won just six of their 14 home fixtures so far this campaign.
Grant McCann saw his side battle back from behind in the last round against Rotherham, while the visitors saw off Nottingham Forest.
What time does Hull vs Chelsea kick off?
CHELSEA make the trip north to Hull on Saturday, January 25.

What they said
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard: “We respect the FA Cup. I do, the players do and this club has been fortunate enough to win it a fair few times in the modern era so we want to win it again.
“People will argue whether top four is more important than the FA Cup but I don’t think we need to get into that one.
“We’re professionals so we want to win the game and get through to the next round.”
Hull boss Grant McCann: “This is a great game for us but Huddersfield and Brentford is more important for me, it really is.
“They’re the big ones. The league games are the priority. This is a nice bonus. We’ll look forward to the game and we’ll try to win it, of course we will.
“We won’t go out there with any other intention than that.”
