Wagner calm over Town standing

Huddersfield Town head coach David Wagner accepts that his side will be seen as potential giantkillers for much of their first Premier League season.

The Terriers have made a superb start to life in the top-flight by taking seven points from a possible nine in their three games to date, with a trip to West ham on Monday evening next on the agenda.

If you want to stay up, then you have to be strong every weekend.

And Wagner is in no doubt about the standing of his club ahead of their visit to the London Stadium.

He told reporters: "We have our aim and our target on Monday, but I think we should be honest that in terms of the size - these are two different clubs.

"Are we still little Huddersfield? In this season, for sure, yeah. If you see the budgets of the teams for this season, of course.

"Beyond this season, nobody knows. This is nothing I can answer now. We can speak about this after the season."

Meanwhile, summer signing Steve Mounie has warned Town that will need to continue to be at their best every week to ensure Premier League survival.

The former Montpellier striker added on Sky Sports News: "There's a long way to go - we have to be aware of that. We need to be at our best every game as the Premier League is very hard.

"If you want to stay up, then you have to be strong every weekend."

Mounie marked his Terriers debut with two goals in a 3-0 win at Crystal Palace and he is 15/8 to score at any time against the Hammers on Monday evening.

The 22-year-old Benin international can be backed at 13/5 to be the first goalscorer in the game for Town, who are 3/1 to keep a clean sheet for the third time in four league games.
