Everton announced their fixture list for next season on Thursday morning and some supporters are confident that the Toffees can start the campaign strongly as they’ll avoid facing a top-six club between August and mid-September.
Everton face Crystal Palace (August 10), Watford (August 17), Aston Villa (August 24), Wolverhampton Wanderers (August 31), Bournemouth (September 14) and Sheffield United (September 21) in the first two months and will fancy their chances of getting six wins.

Although December will be tough, that is a good 6 games to start with. We get wins there and the confidence and momentum will build and carry us through the rest of the season. #COYB

December could be a rough period for the Blues, however, with Everton facing Liverpool (December 4), Chelsea (December 7), Manchester United (December 14) and Arsenal (December 21) in their first four games of the month.
They could have a positive end to the season though, as Marco Silva’s men will play Southampton (April 18), Wolverhampton Wanderers (April 25), Aston Villa (May 2), Sheffield United (May 9) and Bournemouth (May 17) in the run-in.
Everton finished eighth in the Premier League last season, picking up 54 points from 38 games, but the club want to push for a top-six position this time out. They could start and end the campaign strongly, but the winter months might halt their progress.
