Crystal Palace vs Huddersfield

Crystal Palace vs Huddersfield

Huddersfield is a team that scraped through last season in order to gain promotion.

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.

Having strengthened his squad with a dozen new players in the close-season, Wagner saw the most expensive of them, Benin worldwide Steve Mounie, score twice.

In gearing up for their first crack at the Premier League, the Terriers brought in striker Steve Mounie from Ligue 1 side Montpellier for £11 million, midfielder Aaron Mooy from Manchester City for £8 million, forward Tom Ince from Derby County for £10 million and winger Elias Kachunga from Ingolstadt for £11 million.

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

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good price on Crystal Palace winning this game and as a result, I think it is the way to go in terms of betting. This is why we bought him, to score goals.

Town's German manager David Wagner was less surprised than those observers who have tipped his team to go straight back down to the Championship.


Former Margate striker Freddie Ladapo was an unused substitute, along with teenager Jason Lokilo and South Korean global Chung-yong Lee, and with Palace's only other senior striker with Premier League experience, Connor Wickham, still likely to be out until the new year, this could well be an area de Boer looks to strengthen before the end of August.

Wagner told the club's official website: "I'm very happy that Mark is becoming part of my backroom staff".

De Boer has taken over with no experience of English football, but having managed Ajax and Inter.

"We know exactly where we come from, we know how big the financial gap is but we know we have the right to play in the Premier League".

The 35-year-old former Fulham, Crystal Palace, Charlton Athletic and Cardiff City defender, who has played over 100 games for the Terriers since joining in 2014, has chose to call time on his career.

Ahead of his sides' opening fixture, the Dutchmen insists that he doesn't feel the need to prove a point to anyone despite moving to a new league.

Huddersfield's last top-flight match was in April 1972 and also away at Crystal Palace, when these two sides played out a 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park.
