Crystal Palace got their Premier League campaign off to the worst possible start by losing 3-0 at home to Huddersfield Town.

There was no sign of any nerves from Huddersfield right from the off at Selhurst Park, as they pressed the Eagles high and hurried them into mistakes.

Steve Mounie then made it 2-0 with a brilliant header off a Mooy cross from the left, putting the visiting fans in dreamland at half-time in south London.

"It wasn't bad, was it?"

"I don't know", Sky Sports quote the Palace boss as saying.

'It is a very hard lesson for everybody, for me, the staff, the players.




Palace finally began to assert themselves in the second half and Huddersfield's debutant goalkeeper Jonas Lossl was obliged to save smartly from Christian Benteke and Zaha in rapid succession. This means you have to show togetherness. This game is between two sides that will probably be fighting for the spots of safety at the end of the season so getting wins early in the season will be beneficial for both sides.

Over the past 20 years Crystal Palace and Huddersfield have met 8 times, three times won the "Terriers", once the "eagles" and 4 games ended in a draw.

"I have always said that we will only be competitive if we stick to our identity". "We're having a laugh".

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

The former Manchester United man was the most fouled player in the Premier League last season on 121.

Manchester City, the bookmakers' favourites to take their crown this season, had no such problems seeing off promoted Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0 in Saturday's late game, while Liverpool were held at Watford and Wayne Rooney scored Everton's victor on his return against Stoke.
