There were only two American field players in action in the English Premier League on Saturday but that didn't stop them from nearly equaling the goal total of all the English Players in the EPL combined.
Clint Dempsey scored a pair of goals to help Fulham defeat Stoke City, 2-0, while Jonathan Spector added his own goal to help West Ham register a 2-2 tie against Everton.
The three combined goals was just one less than all English players produced in Saturday's eight Premier League matches. Keiran Richardson (two), Darren Bent and Aaron Lennon scored the four goals among English players in the Premier League on Saturday.
Dempsey and Spector were the only American field players to play, while goalkeeper Brad Friedel posted a shutout in Aston Villa's 1-0 win against Manchester City. Tim Howard was in net for Everton. Jermaine Jones is set to make his Premier League debut for Blackburn on Sunday, while Stuart Holden and Bolton face Chelsea on Monday.
