Huddersfield’s Steve Mounie has scored two goals in three Premier League games

Huddersfield moved top of the Premier League on goal difference as they played out a goalless draw with Southampton.

The Terriers had the best of the chances as they looked to extend their 100% start to the season, with Rajiv van la Parra, Steve Mounie and Elias Kachunga all having opportunities

But they ultimately had Tommy Smith to thank for saving a point with a goalline clearance from Ryan Bertrand’s injury-time header.

Three games into their first Premier League season, Huddersfield are ahead of Manchester City on goal difference but could be usurped at the top by Manchester United, who are facing Leicester City in the 17:30 BST kick-off.

Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino, meanwhile, has made an unbeaten start in the Premier League with two draws and one victory.

Terriers keep it clean – again

Huddersfield have opened the league season with three successive clean sheets – only the second time a promoted side have done so after Charlton achieved the feat in 1997.

Few would have predicted their flying start to the campaign, but David Wagner’s side have been a breath of fresh air.

“We have three clean sheets in the Premier League so I am very proud,” said Wagner.

“We will go into this international break with a smile on our face.

“We wanted to show that we are brave. Every game you have a chance. I am very happy.”

What’s next?

Following the international break, Huddersfield travel to London Stadium to face West Ham on Monday, 11 September at 20:00 BST. The Saints host Watford two days prior to that (15:00).
