- Huddersfield haven’t won back to back away matches in the top-flight since their final two away games of the 1955/56 campaign.

- Huddersfield’s Jonas Lössl is looking to become only the fourth goalkeeper in Premier League history to keep a clean sheet in each of his first four appearances in the competition, after Pepe
Reina, Alex Manninger and Anders Lindegaard.

- West Ham United have allowed their opponents a league-high nine clear-cut chances in front of goal this season, from which they have conceded eight goals.
