Profile

Sunderland are on the hunt for a new manager after David Moyes resigned from his post. The likes of Derek McInnes, Nigel Pearson, Kevin Phillips, Chris Wilder and Marco Silva feature in the betting to replace him - click on the odds below to place your bets  

Sunderland were previously enjoying their longest spell in the Premier League, with the 2016/17 campaign the club's tenth in a row. During that time the Black Cats have only finished in the top-10 just once (2010/11), while they've flirted with relegation on the majority of occasions, especially in recent years

Since returning to the top-flight in 2007 the Mackems have gone through their fair share of managers, including Roy Keane, Ricky Sbragia, Steve Bruce, Martin O'Neill, Paolo Di Canio, Gus Poyet, and Advocaat. This inconsistency has been a major factor in the Wearsiders' failure to challenge for a top-10 place, with chairman Ellis Short coming under fire from fans.
