Huddersfield Town wallop Bournemouth for vital victory

Huddersfield Town snapped a five-match losing sequence to beat in-form Bournemouth 4-1 and move out of the Premier League's relegation zone on Sunday.

Goals by Beninese striker Steve Mounie either side of halftime put Huddersfield into a deserved two-goal lead after Bournemouth's Junior Stanislas had cancelled out Alex Pritchard's early strike for the hosts with a precise finish.

Mounie headed in Aaron Mooy's free kick in the 27th minute to put the hosts back in front and Mounie struck again in the 66th minute with a superb finish after more good work by Mooy.

Rajiv van la Parra tucked away a stoppage time penalty to complete a satisfying afternoon for David Wagner's side.

Victory did come at a cost for Huddersfield with Australian midfielder Mooy leaving the pitch on a stretcher in the second half after a clash of knees.

The Premier League basement has taken on a revolving door feel with so many clubs involved in the relegation battle.

Huddersfield began their first Premier League season impressively but have struggled to replicate their early verve and had not won for eight games before Sunday.
