Clint Dempsey scores 50th Premier League goal

The American struck a lovely free kick to become the first player from the USA to hit 50 goals in the EPL.
Clint Dempsey brought his tally for the season to 23 goals in all competitions and 17 in the league with a wonderfully taken free kick against Sunderland on Sunday.

The goal was the Texan's 50th in the Premier League, making him the first U.S. player to ever reach that milestone in the league.

A Moussa Dembele strike that took a nasty deflection added to Dempsey's goal to finish out a 2-1 win for the Cottagers, who are comfortably in the top half of the table heading into the final week of the season, having temporarily jumped Liverpool into the eighth spot in the league.

Fulham will take on Tottenham in its final match of the season next Sunday.
