Huddersfield Town secured a big 4-1 win over AFC Bournemouth to inject new life into their Premier League survival hopes, but the triumph was soured by Aaron Mooy's injury.

Alex Pritchard got off the mark with his first goal for the club and Steve Mounie was also on target for the hosts, leaving Wagner hopeful that Huddersfield can now climb back up the table.

The one time a clacker-ful ground fell silent was 15 minutes from the end when Mooy was left holding his head in his hands on a stretcher.

Their lead might have been wiped out again before half-time, as Steve Cook met Charlie Daniels' clever low corner with a glancing shot that brushed the outside of the post as it rolled wide.

The Premier League basement has taken on a revolving door feel with so many clubs involved in the relegation battle.

Unbeaten in the top-flight since Boxing Day, Eddie Howe's men have fired themselves away from peril and into the top-half and now face David Wagner's side who are winless since December 16.

"It was our idea to press the opponent high up the pitch and win the ball".

While Bournemouth look relatively safe after recent wins against Arsenal and Chelsea in a seven-match unbeaten streak, manager Eddie Howe knows they can not afford any loss of form.

"We should look as hungry, if not hungrier than them - that's no excuse for us".

But there was still time for a fourth goal, as Van La Parra confidently converted a spot-kick after Pritchard was sent tumbling by Dan Gosling, giving the home side a measure of revenge for its 4-0 thrashing at Bournemouth in November.

Bournemouth is the seventh team Huddersfield has beaten in all four tiers of English league football, along with Bradford, Brentford, Bury, Grimsby, Portsmouth and Watford.
