Speaking to the BBC’s cameras a short time after match day referee Michael Oliver blew the final whistle, Huddersfield Town head coach David Wagner explained.

‘It was a huge win for us. Now it’s time to build up momentum against opponents which are in front of us, against whom we are more competitive. We said before the game that this is massive for us and that after losing at Old Trafford we had the difficult fixtures behind us. It was one of the performances of the season.’

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe in his comparative interview explained.

‘I apologise to the fans for the performance. There’s not much else I can say. When you’re aware of the financial and time sacrifices that people make, you want to reward them with an inspiring performance, one that they can go away and talk about for many years. I don’t think that will be happening after that.’
