Chelsea are looking to continue their recent positive run when they face up against relegation dweller Sunderland this Wednesday, December 4 at Stadium of Light. Jose Mourinho's men success in snatching all three points from their latest home fixture against Southampton proved that they are still strong contenders for this season's league title, despite having a bit of consistency issues.
Sunderland themselves still can't seem to lift themselves from that bottom three seat as they can't seem to pick up positive run of results so far this season. However, there's still signs of improvement already in recent matches as they already grabbed two victories, which were unattainable early in the season. That positive sign might helped their morale when hosting the Blues this midweek as they are keen on snatching all three points from Mourinho's men.
The Blues eventually taking away all three points from that midweek clash after defeating Sunderland in a thrilling tie at Stadium of Light. Trailing through Jozy Altidore's effort on 14 minutes, Chelsea bounced back with Frank Lampard scoring on 17 minutes and Eden Hazard on 36 minutes.
Sunderland drew level with an effort from John O'Shea on 50 minutes, but Hazard regained his team's lead with his goal on 62 minutes. An own goal from Peter Bardsley six minutes from time distanced Chelsea further from their opponent, but Bardsley's did made up for his effort with a goal two minutes later, though is wasn't enough to stop Jose Mourinho's men from taking home all three points.
