“We can be proud of our performance” was the message from Danny Williams following Huddersfield Town’s 1-0 Premier League defeat to Arsenal.
Town battled excellently throughout the match and was close to getting a point, however an 83rd minute strike from Lucas Torreira condemned the Club to defeat.
When speaking to #HTTV, Danny spoke of his frustration but also explained why every player can be proud following the game.
“It’s frustrating because we gave them a good game. Our game plan was to press them high and I think especially in the first half we did that very well.
“Second half we got a bit tired because of all the work we put in during the first half, but the fans of Arsenal got frustrated and stuff, so we thought ok, there’s something in this today.
“Unfortunately, in the 85th minute they scored 1-0 and obviously, the quality they have they kept playing it down, so well done to them, but we can be proud of our performance today.
“Everyone can see the progress we are doing, especially compared to last season.
“Against Liverpool, Tottenham, we’ve given them all a good game, so like I said we can be proud of what we did today. The result was unfortunate, but I think we can be happy with the performance.”
That was Danny Williams’ first start since March 2018 as he recovered from two injury setbacks.
The USA international described how happy he felt to be back playing in the Premier League for Huddersfield Town.
“It felt amazing to be on the pitch. Everyone who knows me knows I love this game so much and it was emotional to be honest because I put a lot of hard work in after my injury.
“I was close to coming back earlier, but then my knee swelled up, which was more frustrating, so it took me another month to recover.
“I was so happy today that I could be on the pitch and could do what I love most, being on the pitch and playing football.”
