He scores with his left, he scores with his right...

You all know the words. Fulham's Clint Dempsey converted from close range near the hour to give the visitors a 1-1 share at arch nemesis Chelsea. Since we've taken to running numbers on Deuce this year, let's break down the tally:

It was his first ever at Stamford Bridge, his second in five career Boxing Day derbies, his sixth league goal of the season (marking the fifth straight season he's done that), his ninth across all competitions (tying him with Jozy Altidore for the 2011/12 Americans Abroad scoring lead), his 16th club marker of 2011 (which I suspect, research completion pending, is a new standard for US players in Europe) and his 39th lifetime EPL strike (adding to his record).

I think today was his 39th EPL goal, not 40.
