Mooy's Huddersfield continue to impress

Aaron Mooy's Huddersfield Town remain undefeated after three games after their 1-1 draw away to Aston Villa. It comes after they beat Newcastle at St. James' Park 2-1, meaning they've taken four points out of a possible six in away matches against teams that were in the Premier League last season. 

Mooy played the full 90 minutes completing 83 passes with an 89% success rate.

However it was Huddersfield's goal that was the most memorable thing to come out of the match. 

Huddersfield are now third, equal on seven points with first placed Brighton.

It's the 24-year-old's 15th goal for Leeds in 41 matches.
