Sunderland 3 Chelsea 2: Defoe completes Black Cats comeback to boost survival hopes

Chelsea skipper John Terry – already booked for a foul on Defoe – was sent off in stoppage time for a high tackle on Khazri.

And with the defender yet to sign a new deal, that could well be his last piece of the action for the Blues as he now faces a two-match ban, ruling him out for the rest of the season.

With rivals Newcastle held to a 0-0 draw at relegated Aston Villa and Norwich losing 1-0 at home to Manchester United, victory over Everton at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday is enough for Sunderland.

Chelsea had an early let-off when Gary Cahill was booked for holding back Defoe, with the Black Cats claiming the centre-back was the last man.
