Steve Mounie wants to emulate his "idol" Didier Drogba after inspiring Huddersfield's first Premier League victory with two goals in Saturday's 3-0 win at Crystal Palace.

"Wonder if that is a way that can go to the Championship...."

Palace's final game before the September global break is a visit from Swansea City.

"I won't be making any changes to our tactics", De Boer said. "With the togetherness and fighting attitude we had, and the idea to keep them away from goal by pressing them as high as possible, we were fearless enough to try to press them high and over the game our game plan worked".

"The team must adapt when the opposition is playing a high press and know when it is suitable to play the ball on the ground or to be more direct". "It's a very hard".

Despite a lack of bodies in the heart of the defence, De Boer is expected to lead Palace up the table this season and has added Ruben Loftus-Cheek along with Fosu-Mensah to his squad to help with that aim. Of course you can lose games, but not like this. "But we had to move quickly after winning promotion to sign him".

"You have to recognise when you have to play it on the ground or when you don't - and in those 15 minutes you could see that they pressed us and after that you could see what we did and we had chances, but it is an expensive lesson".

The former Inter Milan and Ajax manager returned from a management hiatus after being sacked by the Italian club last season but will have to adapt quickly to the rigours of Premier League football. "As a manager, you are dealing with many things including players who are unhappy about not getting enough game time but it is my job to create cohesion".
