Huddersfield captain Tommy Smith insists they can handle Premier League life

Promotion-winning Cardiff captain Mark Hudson ends playing career Football: Huddersfield's Hudson retires, joins coaching staff
Damon Campbell | 13 August, 2017, 01:11

The 24-year-old is seen by many as the key player for Palace this season, as they look to try and achieve a respectable position in the Premier League this year, although it will depend on how well he can perform.

Ahead of the opening weekend of Premier League action, Sportsmail will be providing you with all you need to know about every fixture, with team news, provisional squads, betting odds and Opta stats.

Smith fractured his foot in the Championship play-off final win over Reading in May and has missed the bulk of pre-season but, after Mark Hudson's retirement was confirmed this week, his successor as skipper has declared himself fit to lead the team out at Selhurst Park.

Huddersfield Town won 25 games during their Championship campaign last season, however, all but three of those wins came by a single goal.

"The pundits are there to voice their opinion, this is obviously their opinion, as it was last season. That is why we bought him - to score goals". Huddersfield has a good manager but they lack skills on the pitch and that could cost them this season.

Revenue dropped slightly to $14.24 billion, and adjusted earnings dropped 4 cents per share to $1.58, but beat estimates of $1.55. Platinum gained 0.7 percent to $973.40 per ounce after hitting its highest since April 21 in the previous session.

Crystal Palace are aiming to get their 2017-18 campaign off to a good start under new manager Frank de Boer, who takes charge of the Eagles following the departure of the retired Sam Allardyce. "The Premier League is a great competition to be involved in and it is a great opportunity to be working under Frank de Boer once again having been with him at Ajax".

Huddersfield Town's last top-flight match was in April 1972 and also away at Crystal Palace, a 0-0 draw.

The visitors, playing their first ever match in the Premier League, made the brighter start and went ahead after 23 minutes when Joel Ward inadvertently bundled the ball into his own goal. It worked for long periods of the game, and I think that is one of the reasons we have got this result today.

- The Terriers are just the fifth newly promoted side to win on the opening day of the Premier League since 2008-09 (also West Ham in 2012, Blackpool in 2010 and Hull in 2008 and 2016).
