Sunderland pitch invader skins stewards during Chelsea clash

For large parts of Sunderland’s clash with Chelsea in the League Cup quarter-final, there was little to write home about.

The game sparked into life in the dying moments of normal time, when Fabio Borini grabbed an equaliser. And, Ki Sung-Yueng’s winner meant it was a famous night for the Black Cats.

One man who missed the comeback, however, was a cheeky pitch invader who goaded players and evaded stewards – initially at least.

The man, who decided against a top on a chilly night in the north east, was slowly surrounded by club officials after dancing around in the centre circle area.

But, he made a quick break for it, leaving three stewards in their tracks before side-stepping another and evading a diving tackle from the next in-line.

As men in fluorescent coats continue to chase the hoodlum, another takes an embarrassing tumble before the invader ‘celebrates’ with a knee-slide in the penalty box.

Players from both sides restrain themselves from getting involved, with Kevin de Bruyne looking particularly unhappy at the start of the video.

For the record, Frank Lampard scored the opening goal of the contest for Chelsea, but Jose Mourinho’s side fell to Gus Poyet and his resurgent team.
