The second-best club from Liverpool established a reputation of a solid top-half side over the past couple of seasons. Everton are coming off from back-to-back eighth-place finish, which is seen as a one-spot downgrade from the 2016/17 standings when they finished the season in seventh. However, the Toffees fans still remember the successive 11th-place finishes in 2014 and 2015. Therefore, the betting odds of 1.57 on a Top-10 seem like a safe bet for the Toffees supporters. Nevertheless, those convinced that Everton can make a big step forward in the 2019/20 campaign can back them for a Top-6 finish at a 7.00 price.
Everton Key Players
The Toffees made a great effort to reinforce their squad ahead of the new season. Marco Silva bolstered his ranks at key positions and new arrivals could very well become an integral part of the team, and a pivotal point of the squad. Former Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi, Man City midfielder Fabian Delph and Juventus starlet Moise Kean all joined Everton on the back of high expectations. The Premier League season is a long and an exhausting one, which is why their quality and talent will come in handy at a certain point of the season. These three players will receive great support from well-established star performers such as Brazilian winger Richarlison, another former Arsenal star Theo Walcott or Turkish forward Cenk Tosun.
As far as rivalries go, Everton are generally known as a friendly club. Evertonians have a long-standing rivalry with their city adversaries Liverpool. The Merseyside Derby originates from 1892, when a row over Anfield rent forced Everton out of the iconic venue and into the Goodison Park. The Merseyside Derby attracts great attention worldwide. However, the Liverpool-based rivalry cannot be matched to any fiercely-contested derby in the worlds due to its amicable nature. Universally called a ‘Friendly Derby’ between the two clubs that share the same geographical, political, social and religious background, the Merseyside Derby will often see the two clubs come together in harmony and unity, especially in times of need.
Recent times, however, have seen the birth of a new rivalry. Namely, it was in November 2017 that Everton got themselves a new enemy in Watford. The Toffees turned their attention to Marko Silva after sacking Ronaldo Koeman, with a managerial saga turning into an unlikely feud which has over the past couple of years included threats of legal action, inflatable snakes and affair awash with insults and hatred.
Officially registered as Everton back in 1878, the Toffees had initially been founded as St. Domingo FC, named after a Methodist New Connexion church in Everton. Also known as the Blues, Everton have lived in the shadow of their more prominent city rivals Liverpool. However, the Toffees are proud winners of the Cup Winners’ Cup and nine-time league winners. Moreover, they also have five FA Cup titles to their name. Everton play their home games in front of close to 40,000 people at Goodison Park. Blue is the colour of the club which also features the Local Everton Lock-Up as the club’s official crest since 1938. The club’s motto is ‘Nil Satis Nisi Optimum’ which translates into “Nothing but the best is good enough”. Universally known as the Toffees – taking the nickname after a local business which was a toffee shop selling Everton Mints – Everton have had a number of other nicknames through their history. The club is also universally referred to as the Blues, while different parts of club’s history also saw them adopt the names of The Black Watch, The School of Science and The Dogs of War. However, The People’s Club stands as a semi-official club nickname.
