Southampton are unbeaten in their last four meetings with Huddersfield in all competitions (W2 D2), winning one and drawing two of their three Premier League games.
Huddersfield’s last away win against Southampton in any competition was a 2-1 top-flight victory in September 1971, with the Terriers drawing one and losing three since then.
Southampton have won just one of their last eight final Premier League games of the season (D2 L5), beating Crystal Palace 4-1 in 2015-16.
Across the last two seasons, Huddersfield Town have lost more Premier League games (47) and conceded more goals (133) than any other top-flight side.
This will be Southampton’s third match against a side starting the day bottom this season, winning neither of the previous two (0-0 vs Newcastle in October, 2-3 vs Fulham in November).
The team starting the day bottom of the Premier League on the final day of the season has ended on the winning side in one of the last 13 seasons (W1 D2 L10), though it was Stoke City’s 2-1 win at Swansea City last season.
Unless they win by 5+ goals, Huddersfield are on course to be just the second side in a 20-team Premier League season to finish with a goal difference of less than -50 after Derby County in 2007-08 (-69).
