De Boer: Mid-table at Palace will feel like a title win

De Boer: Mid-table at Palace will feel like a title win

Mounie scored 11 goals for Montpellier in France's Ligue 1 last season before joining the Terriers for a club-record £12m in the summer.

"Of course, managing another club you have another perspective on that, to be in the first four or to play (in the) European Cup or for the championship, but we are not in that situation".

The Dutchman should enjoy working with the likes of Wilfried Zaha, who kicked on a level last season and can become one of the Premier League's top wingers this term, while Yohan Cabaye is a high-class central midfield option.

Who netted your club's first strike?

The hosts' confidence suffered, and it took only a further three minutes for them to concede a second.

New Crystal Palace defender Jairo Riedewald could make his Premier League debut after an £8m switch from Ajax.

Liverpool deny claims that Philippe Coutinho has handed in a transfer request
According to The Mirror , Liverpool are interested in signing the former Celtic centre-back in the summer transfer window. That is how I understand. "All the questions we're asking now is about players leaving, bit the ones at the club".

However, Palace will be without a few of their key players; Connor Wickham and Pape Souare both have long-term injury concerns and will definitely not feature for De Boer's side this weekend.

Only an exceptional last-gasp, sliding tackle from Ward prevented Tom Ince from putting Huddersfield 3-0 up after the forward was through one-on-one with Hennessey, while Palace provided little in response before half-time.

And Mooy was the creator again as Huddersfield doubled their lead in much more aesthetically pleasing fashion.

The substitute combined well with debutant Ruben Loftus-Cheek to create space to send a low cross towards Christian Benteke that remained just beyond the striker's reach when he had only needed to tap in. He returned it back across the goal where Ward could only put into his own net to break the deadlock.

When Scott Dann wasted another chance by shooting over the crossbar, even a draw appeared beyond Palace, but there was still time for the 22-year-old Mounie to score his team's third.

The opening goal came from a poorly defended corner when Christopher Schindler rose highest to glance on Kasey Palmer's inswinging delivery before Danish defender Zanka's prod at the back post was bundled in by the wrong-footed Ward.
