Dempsey tipping US players to better his Fulham performances

Fulham star Clint Dempsey feels that his Premier League goalscoring record will one day be broken. The USA international took his top flight tally to 33 following his 12-goal season for the Cottagers, making him the highest scoring American in England's premier division.

But Dempsey believes that there will be a homegrown US player who comes along and betters what he has achieved so far.

"It feels good to know that you are doing well and doing well in one of the best leagues in the world so you take that on board, but I don't think that someone won't come along and break the records that I have set," he told the club's official website.

"To be progressing and moving forward again for US soccer is good, but I don't think that other players won't come over here and better the record I set for the States."

And Donovan was hoping that he can continue the form he captured last season for the next few years.

"You don't know when your peak is going to be so hopefully this isn't my peak and I can get better, but you can't play forever in your career," he added.

"I'm 28 now so hopefully there are still some good years to come and hopefully I can keep this form and maintain it for another three to four years."
