Huddersfield have failed to score in four consecutive games in all competitions for the first time since August 2004.

They have only scored five goals in their first eight Premier League matches, while conceding nine at the other end. Tottenham Hotspur are responsible for 44.4% of all the league goals that they have conceded this season.

Manchester United drew their first blank of the season against Liverpool last Saturday.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is still the only player to have scored past David de Gea in the Premier League this season. Manchester United have now kept seven clean sheets from their last eight matches, and if you include last season it is also nine from their last ten fixtures (Premier League).

Manchester United have scored 21 goals in the Premier League this season - an average of 2.63 goals per game. At the other end they give away just 0.25 goals per game on average – the equivalent of conceding once every four games.

In the Premier League, Manchester United have the third highest average amount of shots on goal in a game this season – 15.9. They also have the second highest average pass completion rate at 84.2%.

Steve Mounie is still Huddersfield top Premier League goalscorer after his opening weekend brace against Crystal Palace. No English player has yet scored for Huddersfield in the top flight.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan currently averages a Premier League assist every 125 minutes. He has been responsible for five Premier League assists this season and has created just under a quarter of all United’s league goals.

MEMORABLE MEETING
You have to cast your mind back to March 1952 for the last time that Huddersfield beat Manchester United. They got the better of the Red Devils that afternoon with a 3-2 victory in front of their own fans.
