Forward Clint Dempsey started off the new year with one of his nicest goals of the season, helping Tottenham Hotspur to a win over Reading on Jan. 1.

The goal came on a deflection from 30 yards out on the 78th minute to seal the win for Tottenham with a score of 3-1. It was his 54th career goal in the Premier League, his fourth as a substitute.
