  • Mounie strikes in stoppage
  • Pritchard lively for hosts
  • Wolves fail to put shot on target

Steve Mounie‘s stoppage time goal gave Huddersfield Town’s home crowd reason to sing following a 1-0 defeat of sleepy Wolves on Tuesday at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Last place Huddersfield moves onto 14 points, while Wolves whiff on a prime chance to put pressure on Watford in the race for 7th. Both Wolves and Watford have 40 points.

There wasn’t much to write home about in the first half hour save a Willy Boly injury and a missed chance from Wolves’ Matt Doherty.

Honestly, Huddersfield deserved to hold a lead against a Wolves side unable to rise to the day.

Youngster Karlan Grant was bright for the Terriers, and Jonathan Hogg missed with a 68th minute header of Grant’s cross.

Huddersfield got its deserved winner through Mounie in stoppage time.

Grant was involved, mishitting a pass from Aaron Mooy that fell to Mounie for the marker.

Raheem Sterling was not given a penalty in the 13th minute after a clumsy tackle in the box, one of a couple early shouts for Man City.

Danilo‘s goal came when his long distance rip was blocked by Christoph Schindler, the Terrier’s header bounding off the turf and wrong-footing Jonas Lossl.

Sterling started a move outside the 18, then drifted inside the meet Leroy Sane’s cross with a pounded header to make it 2-0 in the 54th.

Then, pure brilliance, as City turned a Terriers turnover into the goal in four total touches. Danilo to Aguero to Sane for a settle and finish.

Town wasn’t without its chances, Steve Mounie lashing wide of the far post in the 79th minute and just missing a goal with the final kick of the game.

Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl stopped Ben Mee and Ashley Barnes as the match took on some life before the half-hour mark.

Festive nuttiness took a real turn when Isaac Mbenza‘s cross was put home by Mounie, the first goal by an out-and-out Terriers striker this season.

A pair of in-form players made it 1-1, as 19-year-old Dwight McNeil built on his first Premier League goal by assisting Wood.

Christoph Schindler took his second yellow card before the break, but the hosts in a bind.

Philip Billing headed the ball onto Burnley defender Mee’s arm in the second half, and the non-call could’ve gone either way.

The Clarets got their advantage back in the 74th minute through Barnes, set-up by a very much in-form Ashley Westwood.

Brady was sent off in the final throes of the match, a sliding takedown of Mbenza his downfall.

  • Terriers outshoot Reds 12-11
  • Liverpool moves second
  • Terriers 19th with three points

Xherdan Shaqiri set up Mohamed Salah for the match’s lone goal as Liverpool beat Huddersfield Town 1-0 at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.

The Reds stay level on points with leaders Man City, while Huddersfield Town is ahead of only Newcastle United on the table.

Liverpool was winless in its last four matches, with draws against Man City and Chelsea and losses to Napoli and Chelsea.

A sleepy match snapped to life off the boot of Salah, who scored a trademark goal by dragging a shot across goal and inside the far post.

Joe Gomez picked out Xherdan Shaqiri, who played Salah down the right side for a finish beyond the reach of Jonas Lossl.

And that got Huddersfield moving, and the match moved up-and-down the pitch in fitting David Wagner vs. Jurgen Klopp fashion.

Jonathan Hogg hit the bar with a shot, and Phillip Billing nearly whipped a deep free kick on target, though Alisson Becker may’ve had his post covered well anyway.

Michael Oliver somehow resisted shouts for a seemingly clear handball on James Milner.

The first half stated without much danger, but Laurent Depoitre headed a ball for Alisson to save in the 55th.

The Terriers were actually pretty wasteful, with Steve Mounie missing a point blank chance in the 82nd.

Salah forced a save out of Lossl following a slick turn two minutes from time.

Manchester City 2-3 Manchester UnitedRECAP

The hosts looked comfortable and dominant in building a 2-0 halftime lead on goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan, but perhaps the pressure of knowing a derby win would clinch the league title was too much to handle for the blue side of Manchester.
