John Terry was sent off in possibly his last Chelsea match as Sunderland’s quest to remain in the English Premier League received a huge boost following their 3-2 win against the Blues at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.
Nigeria midfielder Mikel Obi was in action but it was Diego Costa who opened the scoring in the 14th minute.
Wahbi Khazri made it 1-1 on 41 minutes but Nemanja Matic put Chelsea ahead in first half added time.
But in the second half, two quick goals from Fabio Borini and Jermaine Defoe in the 67th and 69th minutes respectively helped seal the win for Sunderland.
Terry was sent off for two yellow cards in the second half and Chelsea couldn’t fight back.
The win takes Sunderland out of the bottom three to 17th, while Newcastle, who were forced to a 0-0 draw away to Aston Villa drop to 18.
At the Boleyn Ground, West Ham, with Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike in action, lost 4-1 to Swansea.
Goals from Wayne Routledge, Andre Ayew, Ki-Sung Yueng and Bafitimbi Gomis, secured the win for Swansea.
West Ham’s only goal was scored by Diafra Sakho.
And at the Vitality Stadium, West Brom and Bournemouth played 1-1.
Salomon Rondon gave West Brom the lead on 16 minutes before Matt Richie drew Bournemouth level with eight minutes left.
