Newcastle midfielder Emre denied an Football Association charge of being racially abusive on Thursday.
Emre was charged with "using racially aggravated abusive and/or insulting words" in the Magpies' 3-0 Premier League loss to Everton at Goodison Park on Dec. 30.
The Turkey midfielder will have his case heard after requesting a personal hearing.
The FA launched the investigation after referee Dermot Gallagher's match report made reference to the 42nd-minute incident, when Emre made remarks toward American goalkeeper Tim Howard and defender Joleon Lescott. Both players are black.
If found guilty, Emre could face a heavy ban and fine. He is believed to be the first Premier League player charged by the FA with racist abuse.
