In the Terriers’ first top-flight clash in almost 50 years, Huddersfield crushed Palace 3-0 at Selhurst Park.
What a day ! Me leaving home at 15 to chase my dream and me 11 years later making my EPL debut never give up on your dreams 🙌 pic.twitter.com/BK9nqXFovd— Aaron Mooy (@AaronMooy) August 12, 2017
And Mooy was the catalyst, showing just why he was Town’s Player of the Season in their promotion last campaign.
The Caltex Socceroo had a hand in Huddersfield’s opener midway through the first half, with his corner flicked on at the near post before it was eventually turned in for an own goal by Joel Ward.
It got even better just three minutes later.
Mooy got free down the left and his inch-perfect cross was met be striker Steve Mounie who buried his header into the net.
Mounie added a third 12 minutes from time to put the icing on the cake for the EPL newcomers and cap a memorable day for Mooy and his teammates.
Huddersfield are at home to Newcastle United next weekend.
Two Aaron Mooy deliveries, two Huddersfield goals. The second a delightful left-foot cross. The boy looks at home already.— Richard Bayliss (@RSBayliss) August 12, 2017
Been raving all summer about how great a signing Mooy is for Huddersfield and first game in he's bossing it for them. Go on lad. #PL— Alex (@baggieal) August 12, 2017
