Clint Dempsey scored twice in the first half of Fulham's 3-0 victory at Bolton on Saturday, increasing his overall goal total to 21 in the 2011-12 campaign: 15 in the Premier League, three in the FA Cup and three in the UEFA Europa League. His EPL total is fifth behind Arsenal’s Robin van Persie (26), Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney (23), Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (17) and Newcastle’s Demba Ba (16). Unlike those four, Dempsey has not added to his haul with a penalty kick. Video of his first goal Saturday:
