While experienced duo Rafa Benitez and Nuno Espirito Santo are looking to make good early impressions after their tumultuous summer arrivals.
But who will be the first to be given their marching orders?
Crystal Palace's Vieira and Watford's Xisco are currently joint-favourites at 6/1 with Betfair.

The 45-year-old has promised attacking football at Selhurst Park and is determined to give the club's youngsters a chance to impress.
Vieira will be looking to avoid any comparisons to Frank de Boer, who was sacked after only four Premier League games.
Spaniard Xisco, 40, led Watford back to the top-flight after his arrival in December.
But the Hornets are notoriously tigger-happy having gone through SEVEN permanent managers since Quique Sanchez Flores was axed in May 2016.
Newcastle's Steve Bruce is in behind at 15/2.
The Toon boss was favourite for the chop for long periods last season.
But he turned things around by collecting five wins in their final eight matches of the season.
Southampton's Ralph Hasenhuttl is available at 10/1 with new Wolves boss Bruno Lage in at 11s.

Lage, 45, has limited experience having managed Portuguese heavyweights Benfica for just 76 games.
And his tenure starts with very tricky fixtures against Leicester, Tottenham and Manchester United.
Graham Potter is offered at 12/1 while the two new bosses Nuno and Benitez are locked together at 14s.
Pep Guardiola's position is considered the safest in the league at a triple-figure 100/1 with Betfair.
