Clint Dempsey and Landon Donovan both continued to stay hot in the Premier League on Saturday.
Dempsey's long-range strike caused an own goal by Stoke goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen, while Donovan added another assist to his English Premier League repertoire.
Facing Stoke and with Fulham already up 1-0, Dempsey drilled a 30-yard strike off the crossbar and off the back of the diving Sorensen for a 28th-minute own goal that was very much the handywork of the American. The Cottagers went on to win the match 2-1.
Donovan's Everton side was also up 1-0 in its match against Chelsea when the American picked up the ball on the right flank, cut in past David Luiz and slotted a great pass through to Denis Stracqualursi, who finished past Peter Cech.
Everton went on to win the match 2-0, and moved up to 10th in the EPL table. It was Donovan's 6th assist in just nine games with Everton since moving from LA Galaxy on a short-term loan.
