Chelsea striker Sturridge delighted his little cheeky one came off

Chelsea striker Danny Sturridge was delighted with his wonder goal against Sunderland.

Sturridge managed to fool Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet with a superb backheel.

"It was a great ball from Raul Meireles, I got across the centre-half and with the keeper coming out I tried a little cheeky one and it came off," smiled Sturridge.

"I've scored some of those in training, but never in a game.

"My brother, his wife and their family had travelled to come and see me play and that's who I was pointing to when I scored. It was nice to do it for them."
