Jermaine Defoe scored three times, making it five in his last two league games, as Sunderland collected three massive points in a 2-4 win against Swansea City.
This was a wacky contest that saw controversial calls go mostly against the Swans as two of Defoe's three strikes looked to have been offside. On top of that, three of Sunderland's four goals came after Swansea right back Kyle Naughton was sent off and some would argue it was a harsh decision. Defoe got the opening goal, tapping in a loose ball as Lukasz Fabianski did a poor job of handling a shot by Fabio Borini. Swansea scored twice unanswered, the latter when they were a man down, and led at the break. It was all Sunderland in the second though. Patrick van Aanholt scored a curing effort from the edge of the box in the 49th minute to equalize and Defoe would score twice after that to lift the Black Cats to victory. Defoe has been a goal machine in the past, but five in his last two has him turning heads in fantasy once again. Jan 13 - 5:00 PM
