New boys Huddersfield put three past De Boer’s Palace

Mounie scores Huddersfield's second goal

Benin striker Mounie joined the Terriers for a club-record £12m earlier this summer

Huddersfield Town made a dream start to their debut season in the Premier League as new Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer endured a miserable first game.

The Terriers, playing in the English top flight for the first time since 1972, led when Mathias Jorgensen’s header flew in off Palace’s Joel Ward.

Backed by about 3,000 away fans, the Yorkshire side doubled their advantage when Steve Mounie powerfully nodded in.

Palace’s Scott Dann blazed over, just before Mounie cracked in the third.
