Huddersfield Crystal Palace, Aaron Mooy: highlights, goals, video

HUDDERSFIELD made a dream start to its first English Premier
League season by winning at Crystal Palace 3-0 on Saturday.

Despite widely being considered contenders for relegation,
Huddersfield excelled on its return to the top flight after a
45-year absence.

After Joel Ward’s own goal, there were two fine finishes from
club-record signing Steve Mounie at Selhurst Park at the start
of the Premier League’s 25th season.

“We know we were very clinical and had a bit of luck when they
missed chances,” Huddersfield manager David Wagner said. “With
the togetherness and fighting attitude we had, and the idea to
keep them away from goal by pressing them as high as possible,
we were brave enough to try to press them high and over the
game our game plan worked. ”

For every way in which it may have been wonderful for Wagner,
it would have been a concern for Palace counterpart Frank de
Boer.

In his first competitive match as manager since being sacked
after 85 days by Inter Milan, De Boer watched Palace become
flat and low on confidence after conceding a poor opening goal,
when Ward turned in Mathias Jorgensen’s ball.

Mounie doubled the visitors’ lead three minutes later, and Tom
Ince would have scored a third before Ward’s timely
intervention shortly after that amid a 15-minute period De Boer
believed cost them.

“They were the team with the most opportunities at that
moment,” he said. “But it was just down to making the wrong
decisions.”
