Wahbi Khazri scored one of the best goals of the season for Sunderland against Chelsea at the Stadium of Light this afternoon.

The Tunisia international, who joined the Black Cats from Bordeaux in January, fired an unstoppable 25-yard volley past Thibaut Courtois to put his relegation-threatened side back on level terms.

Khazri’s stunner cancelled out Diego Costa’s early opener, but Nemanja Matic’s goal in the third minute of first-half stoppage time put Chelsea 2-1 up at the break. (Scroll down this page to watch Khazri’s screamer).

If Sunderland lose today, it will seriously dent their chances of staying in the Premier League.

Interest in Khazri should be high

If Sam Allardyce’s side are relegated, interest in Khazri is expected to be high.

The Tunisian has bags of skill and has contributed two goals and two assists since making his Sunderland debut against Manchester City in February.
