We kick off new feature with look back on famous victory.

Champions and Premier League leaders Chelsea were put to the sword by a buoyant Black Cats performance at Stamford Bridge in November 2010.

Goals from Nedum Onuoha, Asamoah Gyan and Danny Welbeck gave Steve Bruce’s Sunderland side their first away win of the season.

Described as ‘vibrant’ by their boss, the Black Cats dominated in possession and shots on goal as they secured one of their best ever away wins.

Onuoha opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time, the first time the Blues had conceded a league goal on their own turf in over eight months.

It was a special way to end the excellent run the hosts had built up; the on-loan Manchester City defender weaving past three Chelsea defenders before sliding past Petr Cech for his first Sunderland goal.

The shock of conceding certainly hit the hosts hard and just seven minutes after the restart Asamoah Gyan bagged his sixth goal of the season.

Latching on to Jordan Henderson’s through ball, the Ghanaian coolly slotted past Cech, sending the travelling support into raptures.

Welbeck was a thorn in the Chelsea defence throughout and was rewarded with a deserved goal in the closing stages.

Showing signs of his earlier hard work, Welbeck intercepted Ashley Cole’s weak pass and slotted into an empty net round off a fantastic afternoon for the Black Cats.
