When asked about Berizzo’s health, Sevilla president Pepe Castro told Spain’s COPE radio station: “Given it is a personal and difficult subject, I would prefer to wait until tomorrow.”
Roberto Firminio scored twice and Sadio Mane added the third as Liverpool dominated the opening 45 minutes but their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stage with a game to spare were dashed by Sevilla’s stunning second-half performance.
Wissam Ben Yedder scored with a header and a penalty in the first 15 minutes of the second half before Pizarro poked in the leveller in the third of seven added minutes.
“We had to come out with a different attitude for the fans and for the boss, he made us play like that,” said Argentine international Ever Banega.
Adomah turned in a cross from Robert Snodgrass early on and Josh Onomah’s deflected 20-yard strike made it 2-0.
Lewis Grabban’s hooked finish made it a nervy finish for the hosts but Villa held on to go fourth in the table, while Sunderland remain bottom.
Steve Bruce’s Villa, who have won seven of their past 11 games, are just four points behind second-placed Sheffield United, having also looked to be struggling at the start of the season.
Coleman’s Black Cats made a bright start but Villa went in front when Snodgrass’s inswinging cross found Adomah, who had time and space to place his shot past keeper Robbin Ruiter.
With Sunderland having plenty of possession in the first half, Grabban forced a save from Villa goalkeeper Sam Johnstone at the other end with a dangerous low cross before Aiden McGeady fired just wide from 20 yards.
But on Villa’s 143rd birthday, Onomah doubled their lead with a shot from outside the area that hit Sunderland defender Tyias Browning on its way into the net.
Grabban’s 10th goal in 14 games was not enough to prevent Sunderland’s winless league run extending to 16 matches.
Having applauded his new supporters before the kick-off, Coleman was hoping to make an instant impression.
He made five changes in his first game in charge but was forced into several of them, with midfielder Lee Cattermole suspended and Marc Wilson, Duncan Watmore and Jonny Williams all injured in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Millwall.
Eight first-team players currently being out of action shows just why the former Wales manager has such a difficult task in turning his new side’s season around.
The Black Cats have failed to win at home in 20 attempts in all competitions and have only won once in the Championship since being relegated from the Premier League last season.
Coleman surpassed expectations by taking Wales to their first major tournament for 58 years and then reaching the semi-finals of Euro 2016, and will hope for a similar impact at the Stadium of Light.
England striker Jodie Taylor will leave Arsenal Women for a six-week spell in Australia, before joining American club Seattle Reign on a permanent deal.
The 31-year-old, who won the Golden Boot at Euro 2017 with five goals in four games, will initially join W-League side Melbourne City in January.
She has spent most of her career overseas, including stints in the United States, Australia and Sweden.
“After two seasons I was ready to get back abroad,” she told the BBC.
Taylor, who tore her anterior cruciate ligament after signing for Arsenal at the start of 2016, has scored one goal in three appearances for the Gunners in Women’s Super League One this season.
The former Tranmere Rovers trainee told BBC Sport: “My two years at Arsenal were a little bit up and down, not as smooth as I would have hoped going into it, but I learned a lot.
“I think it was very unfortunate timing of an injury when I signed there and then the focus kind of changed to the national team anyway, but nothing against Arsenal, I think they’re a very professional club.
“From the time when I signed to now, the level of professionalism has increased so much, so from that standpoint I think it’s an excellent club.
“I think I’m better suited in a league like America and the lifestyle as well away from football.”

But the 27-year-old, capped 31 times, believes he has plenty to offer.
“I play for one of the biggest clubs and most successful managers in Jose [Mourinho],” he said.
“You don’t play for one of the biggest clubs in the world for as long as I have and won most trophies bar the Champions League without being able to do everything that a top defender can do, be it playing or defending.
“Was I surprised? Yes.”
‘Your club form decides if you play at a World Cup’
Smalling, who moved to Old Trafford in 2010, has made 13 appearances this season, helping United keep eight clean sheets.
Team-mate Phil Jones, Chelsea’s Gary Cahill, Leicester’s Harry Maguire, Liverpool’s Joe Gomez and John Stones of Manchester City were selected ahead of him for England’s home friendlies against Germany and Brazil, both of which ended 0-0.
Asked about his decision, Southgate said: “I have huge respect for Chris. He’s a player who’s obviously playing at a big club.
“We want to play a certain way. The players we’ve brought in we want to see using the ball from the back and building up in a certain way. That’s a style I want to have a look at.
“I know what Chris can do. We’ve picked young defenders who haven’t got as many games under their belt so this is a great chance to look at them.”
Smalling said: “This year, as a team, we have one of the best defensive records and have done for a number of years. I’m proud to be part of that.
“It is your club form that decides if you play at a World Cup because there aren’t many England games throughout the season.
“While I’m here, as part of a successful team, that should show, come the summer, what is to be.”
‘I hope he doesn’t get his England place back’
While Smalling was omitted from the squad, Jones started the game against Germany – but lasted only 25 minutes.
And Mourinho said England medical staff gave the centre-back six injections so he could play.
Jones aggravated a thigh injury and will miss Wednesday’s Champions League match at Basel.
Mourinho says he is also unlikely to feature in the Premier League match against Brighton on Saturday.
Asked about Smalling’s chances of returning to the England squad, Mourinho said: “I hope he doesn’t get back his spot in the national team. Because everybody who goes there, somebody comes back injured.
“Of course, when I say I don’t want him to go there, I say from a selfish perspective. I want my players to be happy and to go to their national teams and an event like the World Cup.
“Smalling is playing all the time and playing well.”
