Clint Dempsey's hat-trick helped Fulham to an impressive 5-2 defeat of Newcastle in the Barclays Premier League.

Having gone behind to a first-half Danny Guthrie screamer, the Cottagers came out firing in the second period. Danny Murphy and Bobby Zamora netted penalties either side of a Dempsey brace in a 16-minute period.

Hatem Ben Arfa pulled one back with the clock winding down, although Dempsey scored again at the last.
