United States midfielder Clint Dempsey scored the first goal and set up the second in Fulham's 2-1 home win over Norwich in the Premier League on Saturday.

After Bryan Ruiz's shot was saved, Dempsey put the hosts ahead in the 2nd minute with his 13th league goal, his best tally in his fifth full season with the London club.

Dempsey then played the through-ball for Damien Duff to make it 2-0 in the 13th.

Substitute Aaron Wilbraham scored his first Premier League goal in the 77th to give Norwich hope of a comeback, but Fulham held out to move above their opponents into 11th in the standings, and end a run of three league defeats.
