WATCH: Highlights of Crystal Palace 0-3 Huddersfield
Last Updated: 13/08/17 12:04am
Huddersfield made a dream start to their first Premier League season with a convincing 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Widely dismissed as contenders for relegation before they had even kicked a ball, they produced a typically-energetic display to outclass their experienced hosts to earn three vital points and end the day at the summit of the Premier League.
Their season may yet descend into a battle for survival, but after Joel Ward's own goal, two fine finishes from club-record signing Steve Mounie gave David Wagner and his team significant reason to believe they may yet be capable of more.
Palace fans started the season with renewed optimism amid Frank de Boer's appointment as manager, but in his first competitive game they showed little to suggest they will avoid another struggle.
The hosts found Jonas Lossl in the Huddersfield goal in fine form, but didn't test him enough. At the end of the first Premier League Saturday of the season, the Terriers sit top of the pile.
