Swede delighted with maximum points haul at the Bridge.
Seb Larsson has urged his side to build on a “fantastic” win at Chelsea as they hunt for precious points in the final run-in.
Connor Wickham and Fabio Borini found the net as Sunderland stunned Jose Mourinho's Blues, running out 2-1 victors at Stamford Bridge.
A return of four points from back-to-back away games has seen Sunderland gain ground on their rivals having also claimed a useful draw at Manchester City in midweek.
“Obviously it was a fantastic result today, you can't really say anything else,” Larsson told SAFSee afterwards.
“It's the first time a Mourinho team has lost here in the Barclays Premier League, so of course it's a good achievement.
“We know the situation we're in; we're in desperate need of points. We've got four points from these two away games and given ourselves a chance – now we need to use it.
“We were very disappointed not to win at City, and to come from behind again today shows a lot of character and strength.
“This has given us a chance and hopefully we can take it.”
Sunderland have been in form in front of goal of late, twice breaching a Chelsea defence which had previously conceded just nine league goals at home all season.
That matched their return at the Etihad Stadium as a similarly strong Manchester City backline was twice pierced by Connor Wickham.
“We've scored four goals in two very tough away games,” Larsson said.
“Everyone knows goalscoring has been a problem for us, and hopefully we're coming good towards the end of the season.
“Let's enjoy this for today, but we're not kidding ourselves. It's still a tough situation and there's a lot of work to be done, but we'll enjoy this tonight and then focus on the next game.”
