On this day in December 1999 the Stadium of Light witnessed one of its greatest matches.

Niall Quinn and Kevin Phillips blew Chelsea away on Wearside, as Peter Reid's men ripped into the Blues from the first whistle. 

The pair scored a brace a piece in the opening 38 minutes before Gus Poyet netted a late consolation goal in the second 45.
