Huddersfield Town-Crystal Palace Preview

Mark Hudson retires from playing duties

Two goals from record signing Steve Mounie, and an own-goal from Palace's Joel Ward, turned this into a procession that not even the most optimistic of Huddersfield fans could have expected. "If in those 50 minutes you don't do what the game asks for you to do, you get punished and were punished hard by Huddersfield." . "We will not change that because we are in the Premier League".

"We deserved the win".

Manager David Wagner will have decisions to make on how to line up his young side, and he will quickly learn what it takes to compete at the Premier League level.

With the home crowd in full voice, however, they were unable to capitalise and it was Sergio Aguero who finally broke the deadlock on 70 minutes before a Lewis Dunk own goal sealed the points five minutes later.

De Boer won four titles with Ajax in Holland and was manager of Inter Milan last season before taking over from Sam Allardyce at Selhurst Park in the summer. We created a great chance which we missed, but then we were very clinical.

Speaking after the disappointing loss, the Dutchman said: "It is a very false start for everybody".

"If you can get that kind of quality of player it always benefits your team". In dismissing a ragged Crystal Palace, Wagner's side were nothing like the naive newcomers lucky to be mixing it with the game's giants.

"It can not be a better day for a new striker in the Premier League", Wagner added.

A sign of Huddersfield's plan to play aggressively in their first top-flight fixture for 45 years was that they also fouled Palace's Ruben Loftus-Cheek six times - the most in the Premier League on Saturday.
