Spector strike ruled an own goal by Eddie Lewis
LONDON -- Jonathan Spector thought he'd scored his first goal after 68 matches in English soccer in West Ham's 5-0 victory at Derby.
He later learned it was credited as an own goal by countryman Eddie Lewis.
After Derby failed to clear a corner in the 55th minute, Hammers defender Spector fired a shot toward goal. Trying to clear the ball, Lewis stumbled over it and effectively helped it into his own net for West Ham's third goal.
Lee Bowyer scored two more of West Ham's goals and set up the second for Matthew Etherington as Derby's defense caved in by conceding three goals between the 51st and 59th minutes. Nolberto Solano added the fifth with a 69th minute free kick.
The loss left Derby in last place in the Premier League standings with only six points from 13 games and an alarming goals differential of minus 26. West Ham moved up two places to ninth.
"A crazy 10-15 minutes cost us dearly and, at the end, it was men against boys," said Derby manager Billy Davies, who was without several star players because of injury.
The game was one of only three Premier League matches played on Saturday. Liverpool beat Fulham 2-0 with Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard's penalty coming in the last nine minutes while northeast neighbors Sunderland and Newcastle tied 1-1.
After Torres had collected a clearance from his own goalkeeper, Pepe Reina, to give Liverpool an 81st minute lead, Gerrard scored from a kick awarded for a foul by Carlos Bocanegra on Peter Crouch.
BERLIN -- Two days after tossing away a UEFA Cup lead, Bundesliga leader Bayern Munich lost 3-1 at VfB Stuttgart.
Mario Gomez scored twice for Stuttgart and Bayern, which had its five-point advantage drop to one during a four-match winless streak. Hamburger SV was held to a 1-1 draw with Schalke.
Bayern looked lethargic playing two days after a 2-2 draw with England's Bolton in the UEFA Cup and trailed 3-0 at halftime before Luca Toni scored in the 86th minute.
Bayern has 28 points, with Werder Bremen ahead of Hamburg on goal difference at 27.
Brazilian striker Diego led Bremen to a 4-0 romp over Karlsruher SC, the league's fourth-placed team.
ROME -- Palermo beat Napoli 2-1 in the Serie A in a matchup of two of southern Italy's biggest clubs.
Palermo-born midfielder Giovanni Tedesco scored twice for his hometown squad after Mariano Bogliacino had given Napoli the lead.
The victory moved Palermo into a tie for sixth place with Atalanta on 18 points. Napoli is ninth with 15 points.
In Saturday's other game, Sampdoria beat Empoli 3-0.
Guillermo Giacomazzi scored an own-goal for Sampdoria five minutes in, Vincenzo Montella made it 2-0 in the 40th and Paolo Sammarco added another in the 90th.
Sampdoria has 17 points, while Empoli remained in a tie for third from the bottom, in danger of relegation.
MADRID, Spain -- Manu del Moral and Juan Angel Albin scored to give Getafe a 2-0 win over FC Barcelona in the Spanish league.
Del Moral squeezed between three Barcelona defenders in the 27th minute to meet Daniel Cata Diaz's header before bouncing his shot beyond Victor Valdes inside the post.
Albin put the game away on the stroke of injury time, collecting Ikechukwu Uche's pass at the top of the area and shooting it past Valdes.
Getafe won its third straight to improve to 14 points while Barcelona failed to overtake idle leader Real Madrid atop the standings, getting its second road loss of the season.
Madrid, which faces Mallorca on Sunday, leads with 25 points. Barcelona and Villarreal, which plays Sevilla on Sunday, have 24 while Valencia is fourth with 21 points.
