Chris Coleman will take charge of his first game as Sunderland manager on Tuesday evening as the Black Cats travel to Aston Villa.
The former Wales boss is tasked with steering his new side away from the bottom of the Championship where they sit following just 11 points from 17 games.
Coleman's first assignment is a tough one, though, with Villa sitting fifth after three wins from their previous five outings.

BETTING & MATCH ODDS
Understandably, Sunderland are outsiders to take the points, with Dabblebet placing them at 4/1. Villa are priced at 7/10, with the draw at 13/5.
Chris Coleman takes charge at Sunderland having turned his back on the Welsh national team last week and inherits a squad which are four points adrift of safety at the bottom of the table.
The Black Cats have picked up just one win in 17 so far this season and are amidst a serious injury crisis at present, with Cattermole's suspension not helping the new boss in his bid to turn things around.
Villa, though, are enjoying a fine spell of form and could potentially jump above Bristol City into third place with a win on Tuesday.
Steve Bruce's side were 2-1 winners against QPR at Loftus Road last time out, marking three wins from their last five league games.
Bruce, going up against another of his former clubs, has won 11 of his last 14 home matches against sides he was previously the manager and can be confident he will extend his impressive run of results.
