The Benin Republic international registered his name on the scorer’s sheet twice as the Terriers made a commanding Premier League start

Steve Mounie began life at Huddersfield Town with a stunning debut as the Premier League’s new boys thrashed a hapless Crystal Palace 3-0 away from home on Saturday.

The Terriers secured one of the headline results of the opening weekend and the Benin international was at the center of it all.

After Joel Ward’s own goal to see the visitors ahead early on, Mounie, the clubs record £11.5 million signing from Montpellier in Ligue 1, doubled just three minutes later through a fine header to his side 2-0 ahead at the interval.

The 22-year-old completed the rout late in the second half as he benefited from Collinpull Quaner's back.
