Terry header enough for Chelsea

John Terry´s first Chelsea goal since the opening game of last season was enough to hand his side all three points in a 1-0 victory at struggling Sunderland.

The England defender powered home a 10th-minute header to give his side an early lead, but the visitors then wasted a series of opportunities to tie the game up as the Black Cats fought back.

Roy Keane´s men might have snatched a point as Carlo Cudicini had to be at his best to keep out Andy Reid´s first-half free-kick, and Kenwyne Jones headed straight at the Italian with 15 minutes remaining and went just over in the dying seconds.
