Brighton are unbeaten in their last five home league meetings with Huddersfield (W3 D2), since a 2-3 loss in League One in April 2011. They are 10/111.9 to win.

Huddersfield haven't done the league double against Brighton since the 2010-11 League One campaign that saw Brighton win the division and Huddersfield finish third. The Terriers are 4/15.0 to win.

The away side hasn't won any of the last 10 league meetings between these sides (five home wins, five draws) since Brighton won 2-1 at the John Smith's Stadium in November 2012. The draw is 3.55.

Both Brighton and Huddersfield have drawn a joint league-high four Premier League games 0-0 this season, while Huddersfield have failed to score in more games than any other side so far (18). Another 0-0 draw is 15/28.4.
