Mooy stars in Premier League debut

Mooy stars in Premier League debut”

"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." .

Crystal Palace head to Liverpool for their second Premier League game of the season next Saturday.

Two goals from Steve Mounie and an own goal from Palace defender Joel Ward gave David Wagner's side a shock victory that has lifted them to the top of the Premier League ladder, ahead of Arsenal, Burnley and Everton.

There was no sign of any nerves from Huddersfield right from the off at Selhurst Park, as they pressed the Eagles high and hurried them into mistakes. We should focus on what we have seen and that made me very happy.

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.

Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer: "If you analyse the game, it is quite simple". "Tom Ince missed a chance but we were clinical and had the right fight, attitude and togetherness".

So often played on the wing, Zaha has been moved closer to Christian Benteke in a more central role and was unlucky not to pull a goal back for the Eagles at 2-0 Huddersfield.

"This was a very poor start for everyone (at Palace)", he said.

"If you can get that kind of quality of player it always benefits your team".

"It is awesome, a start like this and for me to score two goals on my Premier League debut".

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.
