Huddersfield Town have surprised everyone with their perfect start to life in Premier League. The Terriers have won their opening two fixtures and currently sit joint-top of the league table. In game week 3, the Terriers will host Southampton at The John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday. The Saints will come into the game on the back of the last-minute 3-2 win over West Ham United.
The Terriers have not only managed maximum points from their opening two games, but they have done it in a convincing manner. David Wagner’s men are yet to concede a goal this season while they have scored four goals. The Saints are also undefeated this season and have picked up four points. Following the goalless draw against Swansea on the opening weekend, they defeated ten-men West Ham at home.
Both sides will also be involved in League Cup action on Wednesday night. The Terriers have a home fixture against Rotherham while the Saints will host Wolves.
Last time, these two sides played each other in a league game was during the 2010/11 League One season, and the Terriers won the corresponding fixture 2-0.
