"It wasn't bad, was it? We won our first game and it is wonderful for the fans, coach and all the people in Huddersfield", Mounie told BBC Sport. If we had pulled a goal back then I was confident of getting a point.

Steve Mounie, Laurent Depoitre, Mathias Jorgensen, Jonas Lossl, Aaron Mooy, Tom Ince, Kasey Palmer, Danny Williams, Scott Malone and Elias Kachunga have already arrived. Unless it's an injury time consolation when you're 5-0 down at the Etihad and Pep Guardiola is using the end of the game to experiment with an entire team of 11 overlapping full-backs. But Huddersfield and their high pressing style was too much for Palace.

"We won't change. We must stick to our identity and idea, show togetherness and fighting and working attitude". It worked for long periods of the game, and I think that is one of the reasons we have got this result today. "We're having a laugh".

It was no surprise when Huddersfield did take the lead in the 23rd minute with a set-piece routine that had the Eagles' defence and sixes and sevens.

The Final Showdown for Bolt: 4X100m Relay This Saturday
Yohan Blake, the second fastest man ever after Bolt in both the 100 and 200 metres, was banned for three months in 2009. The top three from each of the two heats and next two fastest finishers from the remaining qualify for the final round.

Speaking after the disappointing loss, the Dutchman said: "It is a very false start for everybody".

Despite widely being considered contenders for relegation, appearing in the Premier League for the first time in their history and returning to the top flight after a 45-year absence, they excelled at Selhurst Park to secure a significant win.

Mounie's man-of-the-match display earned special recognition from Wagner. "Conceding two goals like that before half-time affects the crowd and the players which makes it very hard". Smith scored four goals and added 10 assists last season.

City's win made defeat doubly disappointing for Antonio Conte, whose disjointed Chelsea side struggled from the early stages when captain Gary Cahill was dismissed for a lunging tackle and found themselves three-nil down at halftime to a team who had not won at the ground since 1971. "That is why we bought him - to score goals".
