MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Clint Dempsey scored two goals for Fulham in its 2-0 win against Stoke City, and Jonathan Spector scored his first English Premier League goal in West Ham United's 2-2 tie with Everton on Saturday.

Dempsey goals -- the first from close range in the 33rd minute and the second on a penalty in the 56th minute -- give him eight this season in the EPL, the most in his five seasons at Fulham.



The win moved Fulham into 14th place, four points ahead of the relegation zone.

Spector’s goal in the 26th minute against Tim Howard in goal for Everton was the fourth in the last two months for West Ham. The other three came in cup competitions.

The Hammers twice led, but Everton twice equalized, the second time on Belgian Marouane Fellaini's goal in second-half stoppage time.

West Ham moved out of the basement into a tie for 19th place with Wolves.

With Brad Friedel in goal, Aston Villa picked a critical three points as it defeated Manchester City, 1-0, on Darren Bent's goal in his Villa debut.
