Chelsea took the lead through an own goal from a deflected combination from Frank Lampard of Chelsea and Lee Cattermole of Sunderland after right-back Cesar Azpilicueta delivered a low cross into the box in the 30th minute.
However, Chelsea failed to make their total domination counted and were punished two-minutes from time when second half substitute Borini fired home the equaliser after striker Jozy Altidore won his battle with goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer.
Another substitute Ki sung-Yueng, who had a header brilliantly saved by Schwarzer in an earlier buildup, took his chance this time after he collected a ball from Borini, moved past Michael Essien and then fired a low shot from 10 yards out past the keeper for the winner in the last minute of extra-time.
“I think we played very well,” Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said. “We lost every match because we don’t kill off opponents and every one knows when we play them they have a chance to score.”
“We had a lot of key moments… we just don’t kill off team.”
Chelsea had won the last nine trips to the Stadium of Light and were unbeaten in the last ten before the defeat Tuesday night.
