STATS & FACTS
Last five head-to-head meetings – West Ham W2, Huddersfield W3.

The two sides have not met in any competition since 1997 and not in a league encounter since March 1972, when West Ham beat Huddersfield 3-0 at Upton Park.

West Ham are still looking for their first points of the season and they have suffered three defeats from three.

Huddersfield are unbeaten in the Premier League in their debut season, with David Wagner yet to be defeated in the English top flight.

Huddersfield are yet to concede a goal in the Premier League with three clean sheets in a row.

The only player to have scored for West Ham this season is Javier Hernandez, whose brace of goals in the 3-2 defeat to Southampton was not enough to help his new employers earn a point.

This is West Ham’s first home game of the season as the IAAF World Athletics Championships prevented them from playing at the London Stadium up until now.

This will be the 40th game that the two clubs have played against each other; West Ham have won 10 of them, while there have been 22 wins for Huddersfield and seven draws from the previous 39 encounters.

MOST MEMORABLE MEETING
The last time these two sides met was back in September 1997 in a League Cup second round clash. John Hartson scored a hat-trick to see the Hammers eventually progress 3-1 on aggregate after losing the first leg away at Huddersfield 1-0.
