Ki Sung-Yueng stars as Sunderland stun Chelsea in League Cup quarter-finals

It was Ki Sung-Yueng's first goal in 13 appearances for the Black Cats since his loan switch from Swansea, with whom he won the League Cup last season, in September. Ki had never scored in English football since moving to Swansea from Celtic in 2012, and this was his first club goal since he netted for the Scottish giants at Hibernian in February 2012.

London: South Korea's Ki Sung-Yueng stunned Chelsea as the Sunderland midfielder's first goal for the club sealed a shock 2-1 win in the League Cup quarter-finals, while Manchester City swept into the last four with a 3-1 victory at Leicester on Tuesday.

Gus Poyet's team had been on the verge of defeat at the Stadium of Light after goal-line technology was used for the first time in the League Cup to give Chelsea the lead through Lee Cattermole's own goal in the opening minute of the second half.

But Fabio Borini equalised for the Premier League's bottom club in the 88th minute and Ki sent Sunderland into the semi-finals with a cool finish two minutes from the end of extra-time.
