Man Of The Match : Miguel Almiron
- Newcastle have done the league double over Huddersfield for the first time since 1964-65.
- Only two sides in Premier League history have picked up fewer points after their first 27 games of a season than Huddersfield in 18-19 (11); Derby in 07-08 (9) and Sunderland in 05-06 (10).
- Newcastle mustered 29 shots, their most in a Premier League game since attempting 32 against Swansea in November 2012.
- Huddersfield’s Jan Siewert is the ninth manager to lose his opening four Premier League matches in charge, and the first since Frank de Boer with Crystal Palace at the start of last season.
- No side has picked up more red cards in the Premier League this season than Huddersfield (4, along with Everton and Leicester)
- Salomón Rondón has been directly involved in 46% of Newcastle’s 24 Premier League goals this season (7 goals, 4 assists).
Rafa Benitez and his Newcastle boys will lock horns with Huddersfield Town in a key relegation battle and though their opponents seem stuck at the bottom of the table, they are just three points above the drop zone, making this a must win match for the Toons.
