Caltex Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy has scored his first Premier League brace as Huddersfield Town recorded a big away win at Watford overnight.
Mooy scored a goal in each half and also had an assist as the Terriers crushed Marco Silva’s Hornets 4-1 at Vicarage Road, in a match where both sides finished with 10 men.
The Australian international had a hand in Town’s contentious sixth-minute opener, where Elias Kachunga slotted home from what looked like an offside position.
Nut there was nothing controversial about Mooy’s goal midway through the first half, with the midfielder arriving into the six yard box at just the right time to bundle Colin Quaner’s cross into the net.
The three points where secured five minutes into the second half as Laurent Depoitre’s emphatic finish made it 3-0.
While Watford pulled a goal back through Abdoulaye Doucoure, Mooy capped a man-of-the-match display by completing the rout with a last-minute penalty.
The Caltex Socceroos midfielder was at the heart of most of Huddersfield’s attacking play, controlling the tempo of the match with his excellent passing game.
It was Huddersfield’s first away win – and goals – since the opening weekend of the season and moves them up to 11th spot on the EPL ladder.
Their final match before Christmas is away at Southampton next weekend.
