Everton are of course both founder members and ever-presents of the Premier League since the top flight of English football was rebranded in 1992 so they have played in all 27 previous opening weekends of the Premier League.

Evertonians are just a day away from knowing who they will face on the opening day of the 2019/20 Premier League season but just what is the Blues record like on the first weekend of the campaign?

Other facts from Everton opening day fixtures in the Premier League include: In the club's first-ever Premier League game at home to Sheffield Wednesday in 1992, Barry Horne scored on his debut.



Manager Roberto Martinez drew 2-2 in all three of his opening day fixtures as Everton manager (away at Norwich; away at Leicester; home to Watford).

In 2018 Richarlison became the first Everton player to score twice on his debut on the opening day of the Premier League season.

Between 2008-2011, Everton lost four consecutive opening day fixtures – three were at Goodison Park; two were against Blackburn; one was the aforementioned 6-1 thrashing to Arsenal and the last was to QPR, their most recent opening day loss to date.

Everton have never won an opening day fixture in the Premier League by more than two goals.
