Chelsea news: Moussa Dembele transfer latest, Lampard’s big Kepa decision, what Blues must fix

There is no Premier League game for Chelsea this weekend, but the Blues are in action in the FA Cup.

Frank Lampard takes his Blues side to face Championship side Hull City on Saturday, after Chelsea defeated Nottingham Forest in the third round of the competition.

Hull are currently mid-table in the Championship, sitting 12th with 39 points from 28 games, although they have lost their last two games in the league, having defeated Rotherham United in the third round of the FA Cup.
