Did you know?

This is the first top-flight encounter between Huddersfield Town and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Huddersfield have scored the fewest second-half goals in the Premier League this season (3) but have conceded the most after the break (19).

Brighton have only won one of their last nine away league matches at Huddersfield (D4 L4) and lost 1-3 at the John Smith's Stadium in the Championship last season.

Anthony Knockaert has had a hand in eight goals in seven previous appearances against Huddersfield in all competitions (five goals, three assists).

What the managers say

David Wagner: "We don't enjoy having a few defeats in a row but we have had experience of periods like this and we have always been able to bounce back."

Chris Hughton: "One area I’ve been delighted with so far this season is our away performances – and they bring about good results, which we’ve managed to achieve so far this season."
