Clint Dempsey was flying through the air Saturday, literally, as he celebrated his 13th Premier League goal with his patented “fist pump jump”. The 1st minute goal proved important as Fulham defeated Norwich City 2-1. Dempsey also assisted on his club‘s second score, which ended up being the game-winner for the Cottagers.

Meanwhile, Eric Lichaj got his first Premier League start of the season for Aston Villa (last PL start was Dec. 28, 2010.) and made an immediate impression. The wing defender found the back of the net late in the 2nd half (80th min) to tie things up vs. Chelsea at two goals a piece. However in the end, Chelsea was just too much for Villa as goals from Branislav Ivanovic and Fernando Torres followed Lichaj’s finish to propel the Blues to the 4-2 win.
