Huddersfield Town- the last Premier League team to concede a goal in 17/18 season

Huddersfield Town became the last Premier League team to concede a goal in the current 2017-2018 season when West Ham’s Pedro Obiang scored against the Terriers in the second half of their game at the London Stadium.

It was an important game for West Ham- the last time, they lost three in a row at the start of the league season, they were relegated. However all those three losses this season have come away from home- the London Stadium was not available for use early in the season (they even had special dispensation to change the venue of their Cup tie), and they managed to turn things around in their first game in front of their fans.

With Obiang’s goal, a deflected effort, Huddersfield finally conceded after 342 minutes in the league. They were also the last team in the 92 member Football League tier to concede in the 2017/18 season. Small fact to be noted- the West Ham v Huddersfield game was being played on a Monday night, with the rest playing their ties over the weekend.
