American players took it on the chin in the English Premier League.

Fulham, for which Brian McBride played 71 minutes while Carlos Bocanegra sat out injured, fell, 4-0, to Liverpool. Claudio Reyna played the first half before suffering from hamstring problems while DaMarcus Beasley came on in the 76th minute as Manchester City lost its derby with Manchester United, 3-1. It was Beasley's first appearance in more than a month and his fifth of the season.

Jonathan Spector made his 10th start of the season and played 61 minutes for West Ham in a 4-0 loss to Bolton.

Two American goalkeepers came out on the losing end: Blackburn's Brad Friedel (3-1 to Newcastle) and Everton's Tim Howard (2-0 to Portsmouth).

Newcastle scored its third goal into an empty net after Friedel joined the attack in hopes for a late equalizer.

Two English Premier League newcomers, Reading and Watford, settled for a scoreless tie. Keeper Marcus Hahnemann went the full 90 for Reading while defender Jay DeMerit played the whole game for host Watford, which has won just once and sits in last place. Reading dropped one notch  to seventh place.

In Germany, Borussia Moenchengladbach, with Kasey Keller in goal, could muster only a 1-1 tie with last-place Mainz. Gladbach is one spot above the relegation zone, ahead of third-to-last Bochum on goal difference. Second-to-last place Hamburg SV played to a scoreless tie with Nuremberg as Benny Feilhaber remained on Hamburg's bench. Steve Cherundolo went the full 90 at right back as his Hannover 96 tied Arminia Bielefeld, 1-1, and stretched its undefeated run to four games. Hannover had started the season with only one win in 10 games but is now in 11th place.
