By SFC Media time Thu 24 Aug Huddersfield v Saints

All the statistics you need ahead of Southampton's trip to face Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium in the Premier League.

- The last time that these two teams met was in December 2010 in the third tier of English football – Southampton won 4-1 that day.

- These two sides last met in the top-flight back in December 1971; a season that Huddersfield finished bottom of Division One.

- Huddersfield Town have started the season with two wins – the only other newly-promoted team to win their opening three games to a Premier League season were Bolton Wanderers in 2001-02.

- The Terriers haven’t won their opening three league games of a season since the 1979-80 campaign, when they won the fourth tier; they last won their first three matches of a top-flight season in 1924-25, on their way to the second of three consecutive league titles.

- Huddersfield have also kept a clean sheet in both of their Premier League games so far. The only previous occasion a newly-promoted side managed to do this in each of their opening three games in a Premier League season were Charlton Athletic in 1998-99.

- Southampton have failed to score in seven of their last 10 Premier League games, scoring just seven goals from 138 shots in these matches (5.1%).

- Saints have won more Premier League away games in 2017 (4 of 10) than they have at home (3 of 11).

- 23 of Huddersfield’s last 27 wins in league competition have been achieved by a one-goal margin.

- Since the start of 2014-15, Fraser Forster has kept 34 clean sheets in 88 Premier League appearances (39% of matches) – more than Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois (33 in 93 games) despite playing five games fewer.

- Dušan Tadić has now played 100 Premier League games for Southampton and he has been involved in 39 goals (15 goals, 24 assists). The only Southampton players to have had a hand in more in their opening 100 PL apps for the club are Matt Le Tissier (80), Marian Pahars (50) and Rickie Lambert (43 in 75 apps).
