Sunderland have an opportunity to respond quickly, to the 2-1 home loss to Sheffield United from Saturday.
The Black Cats are back in action at the Stadium of Light tomorrow night, against Nottingham Forest.
All 3 of Simon Grayson's deadline day signings, Jonny Williams, Marc Wilson and Callum McManaman, played during the Blades fixture.
But it was United's summer addition Clayton Donaldson, from Birmingham City, who scored 2 goals on his debut to steal the glory.
Sunderland's Jack Rodwell scored a consolation goal on his return to action from injury.
