Did you know?

Huddersfield Town are aiming to complete a league double over Newcastle for the first time since the 1953/54 campaign when both clubs were also in the top flight.

Newcastle United can win three consecutive matches at St James’ Park in the Premier League for the first time since a run of four in December 2014.

Huddersfield Town have only scored in four of their 15 away Premier League matches, but they haven’t lost any of those matches in which they’ve found the net (W3 D1).

Aaron Mooy has scored in each of Huddersfield Town's last two league matches against Newcastle, netting the winner in this season’s reverse fixture.
