Huddersfield beat Wolves to earn crucial three points

Aaron Mooy scored twice as Huddersfield climbed off the bottom of the Premier League table with a surprise 2-0 victory against Wolves.

The Australia international midfielder found the net in each half as the Terriers were deserved winners at Molineux, where the hosts looked off the pace on their return from the international break.

Mooy's double was the first time Huddersfield had scored twice in a game this season and their second win of the campaign lifted David Wagner's team up to 14th in the table. Wolves are now without a win in five Premier League matches, losing four. PA

The final game of Sunday afternoon's Premier League action is Wolves vs Huddersfield. Callum will be here shortly with all the team news and build-up to the game at Molineux. In the meantime, we point in you in the direction of Jonathan Liew's brilliant assessment of Moussa Sissoko from Tottenham's win over Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday:

Contrasting starts

This is, of course, a clash between two sides who are relatively new to the Premier League. Wolves have adjusted well since their promotion as Championship winners last season, while Huddersfield are hopeful of narrowly avoiding the drop for a second successive year.

The hosts will be strong favourites today. A win will see them move into tenth, above Leicester. Huddersfield, meanwhile, sit bottom, and will stay there if they don't avoid defeat today.

This is, admittedly, not likely to be an eight-goal thriller. But it is an intriguing contest nonetheless.

The teams are out. Not long to go now. Can Wolves get their first win in four games? Or will Huddersfield build on their two-game unbeaten run and move off the bottom?

Some early pressure from the hosts. Moutinho swings in a corner and Bennett's header is blocked.

GOAL! Wolves 0-1 Huddersfield (Mooy)

6 minutes

Huddersfield's travelling fans go wild. The ball is pulled back into the path of Mooy and the Australian guides his right-footed shot expertly into the bottom corner. Wolves are caught out, and now they have a job on their hands to come from behind.

The home fans are making their frustration clear. Wolves have not started well: they look unusually sloppy defensively and have made things too easy for the visitors.

Excellent tackle by Kongolo to deny Cavaleiro, who was on his way through on goal.
