This time Mounie was the scorer, rising above Bournemouth's defenders to head in Mooy's inswinging free-kick after Lewis Cook had brought down Jonathan Hogg.

"It's been such an unpredictable league this season with so many twists and turns".

Goals from Alex Pritchard, Steve Mounie, Steve Cook and an own goal from La Parra sealed all three points for Huddersfield at The John Smith's Stadium, but this moment grabbed the headlines.

Bournemouth found its opponent even more hard to deal with after the break, only managing to stay within touching distance as a result of Huddersfield's profligacy.

Bournemouth equalized six minutes later when Ryan Fraser crossed from the right and Stanislas controlled the ball before sidefooting home nonchalantly. To get one seven minutes in was the start required.

His driving run down the left in the seventh minute ended with a cut-back to January signing Pritchard, who swept in a low left-footed finish to give the hosts the lead.

Huddersfield and Mooy will wait for the swelling to go down on his knee before assessing the damage with a scan.

Its best opportunity fell to Tom Ince, but he inexplicably headed over from close range after reaching Mooy's pinpoint delivery.

Huddersfield subsequently suffered the blow of seeing the excellent Mooy taken off on a stretcher, putting a dampener on an otherwise excellent afternoon for the Yorkshire club.

Huddersfield starting XI: Lossl, Hadergjonaj, Jorgensen, Schindler, Malone, Hogg, Pritchard, Ince, Mooy, van La Parra, Mounie.
