Caltex Socceroos star Aaron Mooy put in a man-of-the-match display and scored the winner as Huddersfield Town continued their dream start to Premier League life.
A 1-0 win against Newcastle United at the John Smith's Stadium on Sunday ensured Huddersfield remain unbeaten with a 100% record so far.
Mooy struck the only goal of the game - Huddersfield's first at home in the division - as the Terriers backed up their 3-0 opening day thrashing of Crystal Palace.
MOOY IN CONTROL
The Australian controlled the midfield throughout the 90 minutes, making more passes than any Newcastle player, but made his most vital contribution five minutes after half-time, curling a brilliant strike past Rob Elliot from the edge of the area after a one-two with Elias Kachunga.
Spanish striker Ayoze Perez had the Magpies best chance to equalise mid-way through the second half, blazing over the bar with a volley from the six-yard box.
Huddersfield jump to second in the Premier League standings with their perfect beginning season only bettered by Manchester United's superior goal difference.
Town are home to Southampton this coming weekend.
Mooy was named in Ange Postecoglou's 30-man squad for the two up-coming World Cup qualifiers in Japan and home to Thailand.
