Fulham forward Clint Dempsey becomes top American goalscorer ever in the Premier League with winner against Liverpool

Fulham star Clint Dempsey will have more reason than most to celebrate his late winner against Liverpool on Monday night, as it set a Premier League record.

The USA international became the highest scoring American player in Premier League history, after he knocked in his 85-minute goal.

The forward took advantage of a rare mistake by Reds goalkeeper Pepe Reina to score his 37th goal for Fulham, topping former Cottagers striker Brian McBride's previous tally of 36 goals. The goal was Dempsey's sixth of the season.

The win takes the Cottagers up to 13th in the table.
