The Terriers’ gaffer was impressed following the five-star performance from the 23-year-old against the Cherrie

Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner is ‘satisfied’ with Steve Mounie's performance against Bournemouth in Sunday’s English Premier League outing.

After helping the Terriers to overcome stubborn Birmingham City in the FA Cup tie on Tuesday, the forward continued with another stunning display against the Cherries.

The 23-year-old scored a goal, made an assist and forced Steve Cook to turn the ball into his own net to help his side to a 4-1 victory over ‎Eddie Howe’s men.

Impressed by the striker’s display in the outing, Wagner has showered encomium on the former Montpellier player.

“Apart from the two goals which were fantastic; left-footed and one-touch goal, he was a threat in the link and players; he was always able to receive the ball,” Wagner told HTTV.

“It was a very strong performance. He as well played 120 minutes on Tuesday where he scored.

Steve Mounie

“This is an unbelieving effort which he has shown today [Sunday] unfortunately he was not able to score a hat-trick but two weeks earlier on he scored and as a manager I have to be satisfied with it,

“I think Mounie expects his sixth in the future because he has done sacred.”

The victory is their first in their last six Premier League games which helped them climb out of the relegation zone.

Mounie has now scored seven goals – five in the Premier League - in 20 appearances in all competitions since he joined the Terriers from the French side, Montpellier in July 2017.

The attacker will be hoping to continue with this fine form when Huddersfield Town slug it out with Manchester United on February 17 in an FA Cup outing.
