Two-goal Huddersfield debutant 'will take picture of Premier League table'

From BBC - August 12, 2017

Huddersfield striker Steve Mounie says he will "take a picture of the Premier League table" after his two debut goals helped the Terriers to a historic opening day win at Crystal Palace.

Huddersfield were playing in their first top-flight game since 1972 after winning promotion from the Championship via the play-offs last season.

A Joel Ward own goal put them ahead before Mounie struck twice.

"A start like this is amazing," said the Benin international.

"We worked all day during pre-season, we worked hard and the coach gave a us a lot of advice. The consequences of our work has shown.

"It is crazy, I will take a picture of the table."

Mounie scored 11 goals for Montpellier in France's Ligue 1 last season before joining the Terriers for a club-record 12m in the summer.

The 22-year-old, one of eight new arrivals at the West Yorkshire club, was brought in to improve Huddersfield's goal-scoring record after they got promoted with a negative goal difference last season.
