Two-goal Mounie helps Huddersfield to shock win at Palace

GettyImages-830725918 1

To be honest, when it comes to the first fixture of the new season, facing a side with momentum from a promotion-winning campaign is not the sort of game any team would want up first.

A few opinions, therefore, could have been changed by a superb opening day win for the Terriers that left their 3,000 fans chanting, "We are top of the league" in the closing stages.

The 24-year-old is seen by many as the key player for Palace this season, as they look to try and achieve a respectable position in the Premier League this year, although it will depend on how well he can perform.

Steve Mounie, the club's record £11.5m signing, also showed he is capable of surprising the Premier League with a debut double.

Without fail, the pundits and bookmakers wrote Town off during the countdown to the new season.

Crystal Palace new boy Jairo Riedewald could make his debut after joining from Ajax for £8million while midfielders Yohan Cabaye and James McArthur are expected to shake off injuries ahead of Frank de Boer's first match in charge.

The result ruined Frank de Boer's first game as Palace manager and the Dutchman bemoaned a loss of concentration from his side.

"I'm very happy that Mark is becoming part of my back-room staff", Wagner said on Tuesday.

"I am looking forward to having the opportunity to play with the number of talented ball players that are already in this squad at the club".

"We were a lot of times very close to make the 2-1 and if we make the 2-1 I have a very good feeling that we at least get a point".

Hudson also won promotion to the Premier League with Crystal Palace and Cardiff City and played almost 500 games in his 18-year career.

Since 2008-09, only four newly promoted sides have won on the opening day in the Premier League - but all, like Huddersfield, had won promotion via the play-offs; Hull in 2008 and 2016, Blackpool in 2010 and West Ham in 2012.

Forwards Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke both had chances to put Palace, who staved off relegation last season, back in the game in the dying minutes of the first half, while Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl made good saves from both in the second.
