Another big game, another goal for Clint Dempsey.

Tottenham Hotspur ended their long winless streak at Old Trafford that dates back to 1989 on Saturday, and it was Dempsey who provided the decisive finish in Spurs' 3-2 victory over Manchester United.

Dempsey opened his Tottenham scoring account early in the second half by knocking home a rebound seconds after a Nani goal had trimmed Spurs' lead. United scored shortly after to make things interesting again, but they never found a response to Dempsey's tally.

The goal was Dempsey's biggest contribution in a 70-minute outing in which he put in a lot of work defensively but was relatively quiet offensively. Dempsey did a lot of hustling on defense to help stymie United's stacked attack but it was not until he found the back of the net in the 52nd minute that his impact was really felt.

Here's the goal:
