Huddersfield beat Newcastle to continue winning start

Aaron Mooy

Huddersfield made it two wins from their first two Premier League games as Aaron Mooy’s stunning second-half strike saw off fellow promoted side Newcastle.

The Australian’s beautifully executed finish was one of the few moments of quality in a match that, at times, had the feel of a Championship encounter.

Newcastle looked potent in attack but they lacked a good final ball. Bar a superb save from Matt Ritchie, Danish goalkeeper Jonas Lossl did not have to repeat his heroics at Crystal Palace on the opening weekend.

It is now two defeats in two league games for Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle, and with time running out in the transfer window the Toon Army might have to endure another nail-biting season.

Premier League debutants Huddersfield looked far more confident in possession and did much to trouble Newcastle’s back four if not goalkeeper Rob Elliot, with Tom Ince’s first-half snap-shot their only other effort of note.
