Huddersfield 2-1 Man Utd: Red Devils flounder after one-two punch

21 October at 15:00
Welcome to our live coverage of Huddersfield-Manchester United. This is what you need to know ahead of the kick-off.
 
This will be the first meeting between these sides since the top-flight campaign of 1971-72, with Manchester United winning both games that season.
 
Indeed, the Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 10 league games against Huddersfield (W7 D3 L0), since a 2-3 away defeat in March 1952.
 
Before 2017-18, two of the last five clubs in their debut Premier League season have beaten Manchester United at home – Burnley in 2009-10 and Bournemouth in 2015-16.
 
Since losing 4-0 to Chelsea on MD9 last season, Manchester United have conceded fewer goals (19) and kept more clean sheets (21) in the Premier League than any side to have played in both seasons.
 
The Red Devils have kept seven clean sheets in their first eight Premier League games this season – no side in top-flight history has ever kept eight clean sheets in their first nine games of a season. The only other side to keep seven in their first eight were Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea side in 2004-05.
 
Huddersfield have failed to score in four consecutive games in all competitions for the first time since August 2004 – they last went five matches without scoring back in October 2002.
 
Since Jose Mourinho took charge of Man Utd, the Red Devils have been outrun in 40 of their 46 Premier League matches, more than any other team. However, only Chelsea (106), Spurs (103) and Man City (100) have actually won more points than Man Utd in this period (89 – level with Liverpool).
 
Jose Mourinho has lost only two of his 39 previous Premier League games against newly-promoted sides (W33 D4); both with Chelsea against Crystal Palace in 2013-14, and Bournemouth in 2015-16.
