Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner praised two-goal striker Steve Mounie for his match-winning performance at the John Smith’s Stadium, as Brighton & Hove Albion were beaten 2-0 in the Premier League.

Mounie returned to the Terriers starting line-up in place of Laurent Depoitre, and Wagner showed his delight at having both strikers available ahead of a busy festive period.

He said, “Steve had a difficult period with his injury, but to be honest we all had the feeling he would be able to perform like he did today because in the last two weeks he has looked very good in training.

“We’re very happy that we have him back at his best alongside Laurent Depoitre, another very good striker - because we’re totally aware about the busy period that is in front of us.

“Both of them are healthy and fit - Steve for sure was a threat today. All the other offensive players as well were very dangerous and we were able to create a lot of good opportunities.

Wagner felt his team gave an excellent all-round performance against the Seagulls, in a game which the German also felt showed off his team for their best level of attacking quality.

“It was a very good performance from the defence to the offence - from the stands to the grass - there was energy, aggression, desire, everything what we wanted to show.

“We know if we are to get wins in the Premier League, we have to over-perform and the players done that to the highest level.”

“Offensively, this was one of our strongest performances of the season.”
