Wagner hails Huddersfield fans as ‘best in the Premier League.’

Huddersfield remain winless so far this season after they slipped to a 1-0 home defeat to Liverpool earlier this evening.

Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah slotted home in the 24th minute after a tidy through ball from Xherdan Shaqiri, which sees Jurgen Klopp’s side keep pace with Champions Man City at the top of the Premier League table and consigns David Wagner’s men to their sixth defeat of the season.

Huddersfield have now failed to score in 27 of their 47 top flight games since being promoted from the Championship, although their German coach Wagner insists he has been happy with most of his side’s performances this season and he is optimistic that things will soon turn around for his team.

“Apart from the first two [games of the season] we have performed very well and limited our opponents and we have played with passion and aggression,”’ Wagner told BT Sport.

“[We were] brave enough to play man against man and press even the big names higher and I think the players have done it well without the right result for a number of weeks

“But this is the challenge and this challenge is an exciting one and we need to make sure we turn the performances into results.

“I hope people are not bored by my post-match interviews as they are always the same

“If you perform consistently then the results will come.”

As has become the norm the John Smiths Stadium was absolutely rocking again tonight causing Wagner to hail the home fans as the best in the Premier League – especially since the Terriers Faithful haven’t had much to shout about recently.

“This is the best support in the Premier League and to support your team without seeing goals and wins is hard and this is what I love about the club as they can really see the performance,” he continued.

“It’s a wonderful challenge we face and it’s exciting. I want to transform this individual feeling into a group one.”
