Coming into Saturday’s match, Chelsea had beaten Sunderland in 17 of the last 18 meetings. But, behind a brilliant performance from goalkeeper Mannone who racked up 14 total saves, Sunderland dealt the home side a shocking blow with a 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge. A result that may have major implications on the EPL title. The loss was Chelsea’s first at home under Jose Mourinho. Connor Wickham picked up his 3rd goal in his last two matches while Fabio Borini, whom is on-loan from title contending Liverpool scored the eventual match-winner from the penalty spot in the 82nd minute.
