thumbnail Hello,

The winger and the forward both kept hot streaks going with goals over the weekend.

Clint Dempsey and Jozy Altidore are both having career seasons. Dempsey scored twice over the weekend and Altidore added another goal to his tally for the year, putting both among the top 10 scorers in their respective leagues.

For Dempsey, the closing run of the season looks even more promising with Pavel Pogrebnyak seemingly having added the second scorer that Fulham has been lacking. The big Russian has been a force up front and his hat trick against Wolves will force defenses to have a second player to focus on in the Fulham team, which should open up even more room for the American to work with.

As a measure of how dire things were before, Pogrebnyak, with five goals in three league matches, is now second on the club in EPL goals this season. He's tied with former striker Bobby Zamora who made 14 appearances before being shipped off to QPR.
