Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti meanwhile is hoping that his side's clash with Watford will give him a chance to meet one of his heroes - musician Sir Elton John.
John is the former chairman of the Championship side and Ancelotti is a huge admirer.
"I do not know Watford very well at the moment but I will have the opportunity to learn about them," said Ancelotti.
"The owner of Watford many years ago was Elton John. Elton John is my favourite singer. The match will be an opportunity to meet Elton John."
Other intriguing ties see Manchester City travel to Middlesbrough, Tottenham host Peterborough United, and League One outfit Carlisle drawn away to Everton.
