Carlos Corberan says Huddersfield Town may be encouraged by Everton’s defeat Yorkshire News

The Terriers pushed Everton hard despite conceding the first goal to Alex Iwobi, and they were the better team from then on, as underscored by Tom Lees’ draw and Moises Kean’s red card as his frustration overcame him.

In the previous two games, Huddersfield was arguably not as good as his opponents, but he won, Tuesday night it was the other way around when Andros Townsend found the net with 10 minutes to go, but there was a lot his coach was happy about. .

“I think so,” he mused. “At times we take control of the game, we attack and create chances by defending well.

“Today we saw a good balance between attack and defense.”

Winning coach Rafael Benítez was pleased with the character of his team and was generous to his opponents.

“I was quite satisfied with the way we approached the game,” he reflected. “We had opportunities.

“In the second half they were pushing and we had to change things.

“The expulsion of Moises Kean changed everything, but I liked the character and determination of the players.”

On Kean’s red card, for reacting when Sorba Thomas was on his heels, Benitez said: “I didn’t see the first part of the incident, I saw when they pushed each other.

“It was a mistake (by Kean) but he is a young player who must learn from that.”

Kean had an offside goal disallowed in the first half, apparently bad, although it was a tight decision, and Town also had one scored in chalk. In his case, it seemed to be the right result for the wrong reason, Frazier Campbell harshly judging that he fouled Asmir Begovic, but did so from an offside position when Matty Pearson headed into the net.

It all contributed to an entertaining game.

“The game was pretty much exactly what we expected,” Benitez said.

“We didn’t take our chances from the beginning and we gave them hope.

“The reaction from our players was quite a lot, so I was happy for our players and I hope Huddersfield does well this season.”
