LONDON(AP) U.S. striker Clint Dempsey scored a hat trick as Fulham roared back from being a goal behind at halftime to trounce Newcastle 5-2 in the Premier League on Saturday.

Newcastle dominated the opening 45 minutes and a superb drive from around 25 yards (meters) from Danny Guthrie put the visitors deservedly ahead.

But Danny Murphy leveled from the penalty spot in the 52nd minute and Dempsey struck twice - his first being his 50th goal for Fulham - to leave the home side firmly in control.

Bobby Zamora converted another spot kick in the 68th minute, before Hatem Ben Arfa pulled a goal back for Newcastle and Dempsey completed his hat trick.
