Life in the Premier League has been sensational so far for Huddersfield Town – with two wins out of two for the newly-promoted club – as midfielder Aaron Mooy grabbed a great goal to secure a 1-0 victory over Newcastle on Sunday.
The Terriers paid handsomely to bring the Australian midfielder to the club permanently from Manchester City this summer, and he furthered endeared himself to the home fans by scoring the club’s first home goal in the top flight in almost 45 years.
The move, which began at the back, involved 14 passes – the most of any goal so far this season, and Mooy played a neat one-two with Elias Kachunga before shifting the ball to arrow it into the far corner past Rob Elliot, sending the John Smith Stadium into raptures.

It has been a dream start to life in the Premier League for David Wagner’s side as they defeated Crystal Palace 3-0 at Selhurst Park last weekend before today’s success. Few would have expected such a good beginning for the club – and Mooy’s goal today is testament to the ability they boast within their ranks.
They face Mauricio Pellegrino’s Southampton at home next weekend.
