Huddersfield fact zone

Huddersfield have suffered three defeats out of three so far this season with scoring a goal - it has been 28 years since they lost their opening 3 league games (1992-93).

The Terries also made a poor start in the Championship last season, taking just two points from their opening nine games, losing seven of their first eight.

Spaniard Carlos Corberan was named as Huddersfield's new head coach in July, becoming the club’s four boss since January 2019. Corberan had spent three years at Leeds and was part of Marcelo Bielsa's coaching staff at Elland Road.

Huddersfield conceded 19 goals from corners last season - the highest total in the Sky Bet Championship.

Terriers striker Karlan Grant has been left out of all three squads this season and has been heavily linked with a move to West Bromwich Albion.
