Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer sets their season target

  • Mark Hudson retires from playing duties

'We lost the game in 50 minutes.

When quizzed over the situation, De Boer was not certain a deal would materialise.

David Wagner's side celebrated their first Premier League win with joyous celebrations, the players standing in a line and linking arms in front of their travelling supporters, who cheered loudly every time their heroes raised their hands in the air.

Mounie's second 12 minutes from time made sure of the comprehensive win, and Wagner believes while his high pressing approach paid dividends, his side's ruthlessness in front of goal helped earn them the three points.

The Caltex Socceroo had a hand in Huddersfield's opener midway through the first half, with his corner flicked on at the near post before it was eventually turned in for an own goal by Joel Ward. The Eagles are at home and they are better so it makes sense.

Elsewhere new signings Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jaïro Riedewald and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are in the provisional squad and are all expected to be involved in the Eagles' opening game.

It is now a year since the last cut in the Bank of England base rate, with many expecting a rise could be imminent. This explains why the Bank cut its forecast for economic growth for this year and next.

De Boer continued by saying: "We have to understand that the game doesn't last 75 minutes - it's maybe 95 or 98".

'Tactically, we did not do what we spoke about and paid an expensive price, ' De Boer added. "Conceding two goals like that before half-time affects the crowd and the players which makes it very hard". We know we were very clinical and had bit of luck when they missed chances.

While Huddersfield's travelling fans rejoiced, Palace's supporters were left to reflect on a false dawn in what was Frank de Boer's first competitive game since succeeding Sam Allardyce as manager.

"It looks very promising for him to play again and to get back at the level he was at." the Dutchman claimed.
