Dempsey Scores Two Against Chelsea

Clint Dempsey has scored some big goals in the English Premier League, like the one against Liverpool that kept Fulham in the EPL in the 2006-2007 season. And now he's scored not one but two big goals against Chelsea to earn Fulham a draw in the West London derby.

The first goal came at the 10 minute mark, a cross from a free kick drifted past everyone to the far post where Dempsey waited. After chesting the ball he flicked the ball past Petr Cech as they were nearly face to face. The second goal came in the 89th minute off a corner kick. Dempsey rose above the rest to power home the header from near the penalty mark. Watch the highlights.
