Mooy scores as Huddersfield shock Mourinho’s Manchester United

Caltex Socceroos star Aaron Mooy has scored a goal to help Huddersfield Town inflict Manchester United’s first defeat of the Premier League season overnight.

In one of the biggest upsets of the EPL season so far, Mooy scored the opener as the Terriers won 2-1, their first victory over the Red Devils since 1952.

And the Aussie midfielder played a huge role in the win, edging Huddersfield in front on 28 minutes.

Mooy robbed Juan Mata of possession on halfway before driving forward and releasing Tom Ince to surge into the box.

Ince’s shot was saved by David De Gea but the rebound fell to Mooy who lashed it home with his left foot from 12 yards out.

It was Mooy’s second goal of the EPL season – after his winner of Newcastle United in August – and was the clubs first win in seven matches.

Laurent Depoitre made it 2-0 to the Terriers on 33 minutes before substitute Marcus Rashford pulled one back for United 12 minutes from time but the home side held on.

The win moves Huddersfield up to 11th spot on the EPL ladder with 12 points ahead of their clash with Liverpool at Anfield next weekend.

Mooy’s form is also excellent news for Caltex Socceroos boss Ange Postecoglou with the Intercontinental Playoff for the 2018 FIFA World Cup against Honduras fast approaching.
