Sunderland 1 Fulham 0
Despite the fact that Sunderland have taken the lead at home in the past year and they've conceded twice within 10 minutes. a goal from youngster Josh Maja gave them a narrow 1-0 victory over Fulham.
It's a result that has been described as a Christmas miracle by many, and it has given Chris Coleman's side a famous win in the Championship.
