Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio says every player has a chance under him.
"We have a group of young, talented players, [some of whom] have not played a lot of games this year," he told safc.com.
"Now they have a chance and can deliver a good job for us.
"I found [some of] them, when I came in, sad in some way. When you're not involved, often it's difficult.
"The fact is now we have reset everything. Everyone can have their chance."
