Huddersfield Win First Premier League Game

Andrew Hughes declares David Wagner

Promotion-winning Cardiff captain Mark Hudson ends playing career

Losing 3-0 at home against a newly-promoted side is hardly the ideal start to a new season, but that is what Crystal Palace are mulling over after being defeated by Huddersfield Town.

This weekend's game against Crystal Palace will be Huddersfield's first in England's top division since 1972, after a dramatic play-off penalty shoot-out victory against Reading at the end of last season.

Huddersfield's record signing Steve Mounie and Tom Ince are among nine new summer signings hoping to play for the Terriers. "Now the test for him and the team is make the step up into the Premier League".

Ahead of the trip to South London, boss David Wagner has spoken about how despite facing tougher opposite than in previous seasons, the mood at the club will not change. It will be up to Wagner to get the most out of his defence as the attack could struggle to find the back of the net.

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

"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.

Palace have won just one of their last 12 competitive games against Huddersfield Town (W1 D7 L4). Huddersfield has a good manager but they lack skills on the pitch and that could cost them this season.

New Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer admits that he will be aiming to achieve security with a mid-table finish in the Premier League this term.

"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". I think we've shown that even the impossible is possible in football.

Huddersfield begin their first top-flight campaign for 45 years on Saturday when they travel to Crystal Palace.

Crystal Palace have won only one of their last five opening-day matches in the Premier League (1-1-3).

For every way in which it may have been wonderful for Wagner, it would have been a concern for De Boer.
