Intro

Huddersfield Town’s promotion to the Premier League was unexpected and it was a fairytale season for everyone connected with the club. The Terriers made a brilliant start, recording an unbelievable victory over Manchester United along the way and completed a great season by surviving in the top-flight.

Written off by many experts and neutrals before the season, David Wagner and his team proved a lot of people wrong. Huddersfield’s ability to stay in matches and produce unexpected victories gave them a fighting chance to avoid relegation and a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge confirmed their place among the elite for 2018-2019. It was a memorable moment in a season no-one connected with the club will ever forget.

 

2017-2018

Many expected Huddersfield to experience an immediate relegation after their play-off final success on penalties against Reading three months earlier. However, they made a brilliant start to the campaign and remained unbeaten at the end of August. One of many summer arrivals, Steve Mounie helped himself to a debut double at Selhurst Park as the Terriers won 3-0 away at Crystal Palace on the opening weekend.

A week later, Aaron Mooy’s terrific long-range effort defeated Newcastle United in Huddersfield’s first Premier League match on home soil and a goalless draw with Southampton kept them flying high at the end of August.

Having been ridiculed and dropped by Mainz after an underwhelming campaign in the Bundesliga, Jonas Lossl had a point to prove and the Dane became one of Huddersfield’s key figures throughout the season. Lossl became the final goalkeeper to be beaten in the season, when a deflected effort from Pedro Obiang of West Ham United ended his undefeated streak of 339 minutes without conceding. The 2-0 defeat at The London Stadium was Huddersfield’s first at Premier League level.

October brought about the club’s highest point of the season. Mooy put in an electrifying performance at the heart of the midfield and scored the opening goal at home to Manchester United. Laurent Depoitre added a second shortly afterwards and despite Marcus Rashford pulling a goal back in the second half, Huddersfield held on for a famous 2-1 victory in one of the shock results of the entire season.

Impressive 4-1 victories over Watford and AFC Bournemouth showed Huddersfield could turn on the style when everything clicked and Tom Ince’s dramatic late winner at home to the Hornets in mid-April seemed to have them on the cusp of safety. However, a 2-0 home defeat to Everton a fortnight later meant Huddersfield realistically needed points from their final three matches to survive. Trouble was they were against Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal. Their survival chances looked bleak.

However, Wagner’s side continued to defy the critics. A battling defensive performance saw them earn an excellent point away at champions Manchester City. After Swansea’s home defeat to Southampton 24 hours earlier, just one point was needed in the club’s final two matches of the season. They achieved it at Stamford Bridge. Depoitre’s early goal in the second half and a breathtaking save by Lossl from international compatriot Andreas Christensen preserved Huddersfield’s point. They drew 1-1 and that meant safety was ensured.

Huddersfield supporters can look forward to a second campaign in the top-flight and will hope to create more amazing headlines in the 2018-2019 season.
