[AMERICANS ABROAD] It took 12 games, but Jozy Altidore, winner of the 2013 U.S. Soccer and Futbol de Primera Player of the Year awards, finally scored his first English Premier League goal for last-place Sunderland in the Black Cats' 4-3 loss to visiting Chelsea on Wednesday. Tim Howard returned to his old stomping and helped Everton beat Manchester United, 1-0, at Old Trafford in the first meeting since David Moyes left the Toffees to become United manager.

Altidore scored when a free kick rebounded to him in the penalty area, he turned and quickly fired a shot that gave Chelsea keeper Petr Cech no chance to the near post.

Altidore's only previous goal for Sunderland came in the Capital One Cup. He had one goal for Hull City in his first stint in the EPL in 2009-10.

Sunderland-Chelsea Highlights:


Howard made a big save on Patrice Evra in the first half to keep Everton's game at United even, and the visitors won for the first time at Old Trafford since 1992 on Costa Rican Bryan Oviedo's late goal.

Man. United-Everton Highlights:


Brad Guzan was also on the winning end on the road as Aston Villa won, 3-2, at Southampton. The game marked the first appearance on the Saints' bench for U.S. U-20 keeper Cody Cropper.

Geoff Cameron went the distance in Stoke City's 0-0 tie at Cardiff City. After playing over the weekend, Brek Shea did not suit up on Wednesday.

    Tim Howard was truly in top form against United. Really brilliant. There was a long ball played over the top for Rooney, very dangerous. Howard on a full run grabbed the ball just inside the 18 and, as his momentum was carrying him past the box, had the presence of mind to drop the ball and play it with his feet as he crossed. Great victory for the Toffees! United's run in the top four is definitely in a little bit of jeopardy right now. They seem to be lacking bite in midfield.
