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.
“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.”
