Crystal Palace is off to another inauspicious start with a 3-0 loss to Premier League newboys Huddersfield Town.
The Eagles put themselves behind the eight-ball from early on with Joel Ward scoring an own goal in the 23rd minute. During a scramble inside the Palace penalty area, Huddersfield defender Mathias Jorgensen fizzed a ball back in front of the goalkeeper's box, which hit Ward and caromed into the goal. Palace found itself down two just a couple minutes later with a goal from Steve Mounie, who the club struggled to contain after his two-goal showing. Ultimately, Palace looks to be lacking at the back with two young players in Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Jairo Riedewald as part of the back three. After missing out on Bruno Martins-Indi and Mamadou Sakho, Saturday's result might jumpstart the search for a defender. Sat, Aug 12, 2017 12:10:00 PM
