STATS & FACTS
Last five head-to-head meetings - Huddersfield W2, Southampton W3.
Of the last five encounters, every outcome has ended up being a home win.
This is the first ever Premier League match between the two clubs, although there have been four top flight matches between the two sides (back in the 1969/70 and 1970/71 seasons).
Huddersfield have a 100% record this season and are yet to concede.
Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino picked up his first win in the Premier League last Saturday after a dramatic late victory over West Ham.
Huddersfield’s record win over Southampton was a 5-0 victory in 1953, while Southampton’s record win over Huddersfield was a 4-0 victory in 1994, when the two sides met in the League Cup.
The last time these two sides met was in 2010 when this was a League One fixture (third tier) – therefore it is testament to the progress that the two clubs have made in a relatively short space of time.
MOST MEMORABLE MEETING
The last time these two teams met on this ground was back in August 2009. Huddersfield would run out 3-1 winners with Jordan Rhodes bagging himself a brace of goals.
