Fabio Borini hailed an “unbelievable” day as Sunderland twice came from a goal down to beat Chelsea to move to the brink of Premier League survival.
Goals from Whabi Khazri, Borini and Jermain Defoe secured a stunning 3-2 victory which means that the Black Cats can seal their safety - and send Newcastle and Norwich down - by beating Everton at the Stadium of Light on Wedneaday night.
Borini told the BBC: “In terms of intensity, quality, fightback, it’s unbelievable from all of us. We kept believing and showed that we are Sunderland.
“(The crowd were) unbelievable, and we need that again on Wednesday because that made the difference when we went down 2-1 and kept us going.
“We have to do it this week. We have the focus, we don’t have negative thoughts of relgation, we only have positive thoughts and we’ve seen it today. We know how important it is to stay in the Premier League because of all the TV rights and Sunderland as a football club and city deserve to stay in the Premier League.”
