Chelsea players mob Eden Hazard after one of his two goals in the Blues' 4-3 win over Sunderland Wednesday.

SUNDERLAND, England (AP) - Eden Hazard scored twice as Chelsea came from behind to win 4-3 at Sunderland and stay four points behind leader Arsenal in the Premier League standings.

Jozy Altidore put the Black Cats in front after 14 minutes before Frank Lampard headed in the equalizer from close range.

Hazard then put Chelsea ahead with a right-footed curled shot past goalkeeper Vito Mannone. But Chelsea's defense then failed to clear a corner and John O'Shea put the teams level before Hazard made it 3-2 with a powerful finish from Lampard's assist.

Phil Bardsley scored an own goal as Chelsea moved 4-2 up before slotting home four minutes from time to ensure a nervy finish at the Stadium of Light.
