MOST COMMENTED

Five Americans started in Boxing Day weekend action in the English Premier League, but the only results they had to show for their efforts were a pair of ties for Everton's Tim Howard and Fulham's Clint Dempsey. Jozy Altidore returned to the starting lineup at Hull City and was shoved for the penalty that led to the Tigers' goal in their 3-1 loss to Manchester United. Goalies Marcus Hahnemann and Brad Friedel both had solid games but could do nothing to stop second-half onslaughts.

SATURDAY:
Clint Dempsey
, 90 minutes, Fulham (0-0 vs. Tottenham).
Dempsey hit the cross on a free kick in the first half.

SUNDAY:
Jozy Altidore, 83 minutes, Hull City (1-3 vs. Man. United)
