Dempsey sparks Fulham's thrashing of Tottenham

LONDON (AP) — American midfielder Clint Dempsey sparked Fulham's 4-0 rout of Tottenham in the fourth round of England's FA Cup on Sunday.

Dempsey drew a foul in the area from Spurs defender Alan Hutton in the 11th minute and Danny Murphy converted the penalty to put Fulham ahead.

Murphy scored a second penalty after Tottenham defender Michael Dawson was ejected for pulling back Moussa Dembele in the 13th, and goals by Brede Hangeland and Dembele completed the win.

Dempsey also struck a shot against the crossbar in the first half. Fulham will play either Wigan or Bolton in the round of 16 in the knockout competition.

Edin Dzeko rescued Manchester City with a late equalizer in a 1-1 draw at Notts County and 10-man Arsenal required an 86th-minute penalty by Cesc Fabregas to edge past Huddersfield 2-1.

West Ham beat Nottingham Forest 3-2 and Stoke won 1-0 at Wolverhampton in Sunday's other fourth-round matches.

Premier League leader Manchester United, which will play non-league side Crawley in the last 16, advanced out of the fourth round by beating Southampton 2-1 Saturday, when defending champion Chelsea drew 1-1 at Everton.


PAMPLONA, Spain (AP) — Real Madrid fell seven points behind first-place Barcelona in the Spanish league, losing 1-0 at Osasuna as Javier Camunas scored in the 62nd minute.

Carlos Aranda slipped the ball through two defenders, and Camunas' shot hit a post and bounced into Iker Casillas' goal.

Madrid's new striker, Emmanuel Adebayor, made his debut, coming off the bench in the 65th, along with Xabi Alonso and Kaka. But the trio couldn't rally Madrid (16-2-3), whose only other league loss this season was 5-0 to Barcelona (19-1-1).

Elsewhere, Giuseppe Rossi scored on an impressive drive from a tight angle in the 45th minute to give third-place Villarreal (14-4-3) a 1-0 win at Espanyol. The New Jersey-born Rossi has 20 goals this season, including 12 in the league.


BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Gaizka Toquero scored twice in Athletic Bilbao's 2-0 win over 10-man Atletico Madrid that strengthened the Basque club's claim on a Europa League spot in Spain.

Toquero raced unmarked into the area to volley home Andoni Iraola's cross just before the half, and then jabbed in another cross by Iraola to double Bilbao's lead in the 64th.

Sixth-place Bilbao's third straight victory marked its longest winning streak of the season and lifted it to within five points of fourth-placed Valencia and five points clear of the struggling seventh-placed Atletico.


MILAN (AP) — Inter Milan needed new signing Giampaolo Pazzini's inspiration to mount a second-half comeback and beat Palermo 3-2.

Pazzini joined Inter for $16.5 million Friday and came on at halftime with Inter trailing 2-0 on goals by Fabio Miccoli and Antonio Nocerino.

He hit his first in the 57th, before Inter goalkeeper Julio Cesar saved Javier Pastore's penalty.

Pazzini scored his second in the 73rd and then earned the winning penalty that was converted by Samuel Eto'o.

Napoli beat Sampdoria 4-0 at home with Edinson Cavani hitting a hat trick to stay second, four points behind league leader AC Milan on 47. Lazio is third with 40.

Udinese followed up its victory over Inter a week ago by rallying for a 2-1 win at Juventus. After Claudio Marchisio put the hosts ahead in the 60th, Cristian Zapata tied the score in the 67th and Alex Sanchez put Udinese ahead in the 85th.


PARIS (AP) — Defending champion Marseille was held to a 0-0 draw at next-to-last-place Monaco in the French league, falling eight points behind leader Lille in the title race.

Montpellier rallied to win 2-1 at Nancy, with Garry Bocaly scoring the go-ahead goal from long range in the 59th minute.

Nancy midfielder Youssouf Hadji tapped in a pass from Joel Sami to put the hosts ahead 1-0 after two minutes. But Montpellier striker Souleymane Camara headed home a cross from winger Karim Ait-Fana to level six minutes later.


BERLIN (AP) — Johannes Flum's first-half goal earned Freiburg a 1-0 win at Stuttgart in the Bundesliga, ending the home side's unbeaten start to 2011.

Freiburg climbs to sixth in the standings with 33 points, 17 behind leader Borussia Dortmund.

Stuttgart remains second from bottom on 16 points after 20 games.


GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — United States midfielder Maurice Edu scored the opening goal in Rangers' 2-1 win over Motherwell in the Scottish League Cup semifinal.

Rangers will play its fierce Glasgow rival Celtic in the final.
