The result ruined Frank de Boer's first game as Palace manager and the Dutchman bemoaned a loss of concentration from his side.
Former Margate striker Freddie Ladapo was an unused substitute, along with teenager Jason Lokilo and South Korean global Chung-yong Lee, and with Palace's only other senior striker with Premier League experience, Connor Wickham, still likely to be out until the new year, this could well be an area de Boer looks to strengthen before the end of August. It will be up to Wagner to get the most out of his defence as the attack could struggle to find the back of the net.
Huddersfield Town captain Tommy Smith is proud to have made it to the Premier League. "We won our first game and it is incredible for the fans, coach and all the people in Huddersfield", Mounie said. "He has been at Huddersfield Town for a number of years now, so he knows everyone at the Club and is a very good character in the group; that's why he is the right man to lead our team out on the pitch".
Allardyce's Eagles finished 14th last season on 41 points, and de Boer, who has managed Ajax and Inter Milan, will hope he can push the south London side into the top half of the table by season's end.
Manager De Boer could hand debuts to summer signings Jairo Riedewald, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Timothy Tosu-Mensah, however there this be no returns to the starting line-up for Connor Wickham and Pape Souare.
Over the past 20 years Crystal Palace and Huddersfield have met 8 times, three times won the "Terriers", once the "eagles" and 4 games ended in a draw.
"We will all help Mark as much as we can as he makes the transition into coaching and continues to learn, but I'm sure he will still be a big help and influence on our squad as we prepare for the Premier League".
For every way in which it may have been wonderful for Wagner, it would have been a concern for De Boer. Since 2008-09, only four newly-promoted sides have won on the opening day in the Premier League.
