Everton are a Premier League club based in Liverpool. Founded in 1878, they were one of the original 12 founders of the football league. They won the league for the first time in 1890, and have been crowned champions on seven subsequent occasions. They have also won the FA Cup five times, and the European Cup Winners Cup in 1985.
Known as the Toffees, Everton play their home matches at Goodison Park, located two miles from Liverpool city centre. However, the club plans to move to a new ground in the Liverpool dock area in the next few years.
Their fiercest rivalry is with neighbours Liverpool. The origin of this rivalry dates back to the 19th century and an argument as to who owned the rights to use Anfield, Everton’s original home ground. As a result of the altercation, a group broke away from Everton to form Liverpool FC.
They have been a top flight club since 1954 – only Arsenal have played at the highest level continuously for longer. That means that it is a safe Everton betting tip that they will not be relegated.
At the other end of the scale, they have not been champions since 1987, so any Everton predictions that has them winning the title are also likely to be wide of the mark. They do not have the budget or financial resources behind them to contend with the “big six”.
Instead the club is trying to get back to the days of former manager David Moyes, when they regularly finished in the Europa League places, and even broke into the top four on one occasion. Such achievements are beyond them this season but with the right investment in the summer, an Everton tip for next season might have them back in the running for a seventh placed finish.
