Everton are unbeaten against Huddersfield in their last seven meetings and have not lost to the Yorkshire outfit since 1956.

After victory over West Ham on Wednesday night, Everton ended a run of 12 Premier League games without a clean sheet.

Thanks to that shutout they no longer have the worst defensive record in the Premier League; they have conceded 28 goals in their first 14 matches - an average of two goals against per game.

That 4-0 win also saw Wayne Rooney return to the top of the goalscoring charts for Everton; he has now scored seven goals and has contributed 41.1% of the Toffee’s Premier League goal tally in this campaign.

Wayne Rooney's hat-trick against West Ham came 2,272 days since his last (10 September 2011) - the longest gap between two hat-tricks by a player in Premier League history.

Everton are now the highest scorers out of all the teams in the bottom half of the Premier League with 17 goals to their name.

Huddersfield have failed to score in seven consecutive away games in all competitions - their longest ever such run.

Huddersfield have lost six of their last eight Premier League games after losing just one of their first six.

They are the third lowest scorers in the Premier League with just nine goals to their name this season - an average of 0.65 goals per game.

The last time these two sides met was back in August 2010 with the second round of the Carling Cup pairing Everton and Huddersfield at Goodison Park, and it would be the home side who would stroll into the next round after a comfortable 5-1 win.
