Two-goal Mounie helps Huddersfield to shock win at Palace

Two-goal Mounie helps Huddersfield to shock win at Palace

"Tommy has all the right skills needed to be a good captain; he is reliable, open-minded, committed and likes to challenge not only himself but the group as well", Wagner said.

Whilst Palace manager Frank de Boer will now have to consider whether to stick with a three-man defence or switch to four at the back for his side's trip to Anfield next weekend. "Because they got the chance".

"We should not look too far ahead but focus on what we have seen today, and that made me very happy even if we know the result was a bit high. It was vital we keep Mark here".

"We won't change. We must stick to our identity and idea, show togetherness and fighting and working attitude".

"It was a very, very good start of course, you can not moan and I will not do". "This makes for a wonderful afternoon".

This will be the first Premier League match for both de Boer and Wagner.

Andros Townsend replaced the injured Luka Milivojevic at the start of the second half for Palace, and the hosts did the pressing early in the second half, Benteke superbly denied by a diving save from Lossl following a Patrick van Aanholt corner.

"They have nothing to lose in this game whereas we do".

The difference in best and worst price, or Oddschecker value, shows the relative uncertainty of bookmakers when pricing up the underdogs as opposed to the bigger teams in the league with many of them capable of causing a shock. But it was just down to making the wrong decisions.

The availability of star man Wilfried Zaha will boost Palace's confidence, as the Ivory Coast global will nearly certainly create problems for David Wagner's men, should he be given the chance. "We are confident but we respect every single team in this division".

"I saw some very good things but we have to understand the game doesn't last 75 minutes". But while it will go down as an own goal by Joel Ward, there wasn't too much the former Portsmouth man could do when it came to him so quickly on the goal line.
