Goodbye!

As the Huddersfield celebrations continue it is time for us to wave goodbye.

Head over here for all the post-match reaction. I think the Town fans might enjoy it! Palace fans probably won't...

FULL-TIME

Crystal Palace 0-3 Huddersfield

All over! What a win, what an afternoon for new boys Huddersfield.

Crystal Palace 0-3 Huddersfield

Three minutes of injury-time. Three minutes too much for Palace.

Crystal Palace 0-3 Huddersfield

And the Yorkshire fans encourage the home fans to disappear with a song of their own...

Crystal Palace 0-3 Huddersfield

Patches of blue seats are appearing around Selhurst Park. Time for the home fans to leg it home. There is not a single spare seat in the away end...

Crystal Palace 0-3 Huddersfield

Frustration is getting the better of Jason Puncheon. One suspects he is not the only one of a Palace persuasion feeling hacked off. The Eagles skipper goes into the book after needlessly swiping the legs of Elias Kachunga near the halfway line.

SUBSTITUTION

Crystal Palace 0-3 Huddersfield

He's earned this one....

Steve Mounie receives a rapturous ovation as he is withdrawn by Terriers boss David Wagner.

Crystal Palace 0-3 Huddersfield

"Premier League, you're having a laugh..."

"Easy, easy, EASY!"

The full repertoire of gloating chants are coming from the Huddersfield end. And why not!

'Huddersfield are proving us wrong!'

Huddersfield's players and fans will not be surprised that the pundits are tipping them to go down. What will delight them is that the team is proving us wrong!

Crystal Palace 0-3 Huddersfield

"We're top of the league, we're top of the leeeeeeeeague!!!"

The Huddersfield fans at Selhurst - and back home in West Yorkshire, no doubt - are enjoying themselves.

'Crystal Palace look absolutely woeful'

Martin Keown

Former Arsenal defender on Football Focus

Today they have been a credit to the Championship in the way they have performed. Crystal Palace look absolutely woeful.

GOAL - Crystal Palace 0-3 Huddersfield

Steve Mounie

Wow.

Absolutely clinical from Huddersfield. Moments after Dann's miss, the Terriers scamper up the other end and see Steve Mounie smash in Colin Quaner's rolled square pass from 15 yards.

Unstoppable.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Should be 2-1. Scott Dann blazes over from six yards out.

Final fifteen

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

If Palace are thinking about making a comeback then they had better hurry up.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Free-kick for Palace about 25 yards out. Patrick van Aanholt stands over it... he can hit these. Not this time. The Dutch left wing-back drags a tame shot wide of the right post.

YELLOW CARD

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

An eventful debut for Steve Mounie. His goal bonus may have just been eroded by a yellow card after he clumsily hacks down Loftus-Cheek. Do clubs still fine players for bookings these days? They should do and then put it all in a kitty for a chosen charity. Just a thought...

SUBSTITUTION

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Time for another Town change. Kasey Palmer twirls as he claps back to a standing away end, high-fiving his replacement Colin Quaner.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Palace go back to trying to exploit Huddersfield down the flanks, Wilf Zaha's whipped cross from the left only finding the head of Zanka.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Wilfried Zaha looks the likeliest Palace player to drag his side back into this game. He moves into the middle momentarily to try and make things happen, but can't find a way past the organised Huddersfield defence.

All neat and tidy from Palace - but they aren't really going anywhere. Huddersfield look assured.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Ah. But Palace won't get back into the match if they continue to be sloppy at the back.

Scott Dann dillies and then dallies, giving away the ball inside his own half as Steve Mounie races clear.

But Timothy Fosu-Mensah matches him for speed, perfectly executing a sliding tackle to deny the Benin international.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Much, much better from Palace since the break. They are offering more threat going forward, getting the ball out wide and looking to attack the flanks.

YELLOW CARD

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Town's on-loan midfielder Kacey Palmer goes into the book after nobbling fellow Chelsea man Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Chelsea probably could have done with these two judging by the goings on at Stamford Bridge...

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Jonas Lossl is proving to be a one-man wall. Wilfried Zaha tricks his way into the Huddersfield box on the left, the Danish keeper standing up to block with his legs.

SUBSTITUTION

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Time to shore things up in midfield for Huddersfield. On comes summer arrival Danny Williams - who signed on a free from Reading - and off goes marauding right-back Tommy Smith.

GREAT SAVE!

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Town keeper Jonas Lossl has just opened the top drawer to deny Palace. The Dane, on a season-long loan from Mainz, flings himself to his right to push clear Christian Benteke's pounding header with his fingertips.

Benteke climbed highest to meet Patrick van Aanholt's corner.

Wilf Zaha's eyes light up as he sees open space in front of him, only for Chris Lowe to appear out of nowhere to slide clear for a corner....

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

The Palace fans find their voices as they try to drum up some encouragement for their side. Maybe they have been buoyed by that last attack. Or maybe they're just singing because the sun has come out.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Better from Palace. But let's be frank... it couldn't have been much worse. Andros Townsend weaves into space on the right, drilling low into the six-yard box. Here's Christian Benteke... the £25m striker completely fresh airs it.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Another minute, another Huddersfield chance. Chris Lowe shoots from distance (as one Palace player inexplicably ducks) to force Wayne Hennessey into a smart stop. Steve Mounie bounds up... but blazes over.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Palace clearly didn't get a rocket from Frank de Boer at the break. They are still half asleep. Elias Kachunga almost gets round the back of the Palace defence before Jairo Riedewald recovers.

KICK-OFF

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

The Terriers get us rolling.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Desperate times call for half-time measures. Andros Townsend does come on for Palace as Luka Milivojevic is hooked.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

More possession, more territory... two fewer goals.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Raucous cheers from the Huddersfield end slightly drowned out some boos from the home fans at the end of that engrossing first-half.

Frank de Boer was deep in convo with substitute Andros Townsend as they walked towards the tunnel. Perhaps we will be seeing him after the brak.

HALF-TIME

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Simply brilliant from Huddersfield. Easy this Premier League lark isn't it? Although Frank de Boer might disagree...

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

Palace need a goal before the break. They aren't going to get it. Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha combine, only for a stumbling Zaha to see his shot blocked.

And Patrick van Aanholt fails to hit the first man with his corner. Dock him a week's wages...

Two minutes of stoppage time....

Crystal Palace 0-2 Huddersfield

The woman selling hot dogs has been busier than Christian Benteke today. The Belgian gets a rare whiff of a chance as he meets Jason Puncheon's corner. He directs it well wide of the left-hand post.

Dan Washbourne: Hands up, who thought they'd ever see Huddersfield Town sat atop the pyramid of English football? Absolute scenes.

Oli Parkes: Huddersfield were my favourites for relegation, now it's Crystal Palace...

Patrick Far:I wouldn't blame Frank de Boer too much. Palace not playing too bad. It could be 2-2 already.
