Everton Fixtures: When, Where & How to Watch Every Toffees Game Over Christmas

0

Everton fans certainly won’t be wishing it could be Christmas every day at Goodison Park if the Premier League’s fixture generator is anything to go by, with tough home games in the pipeline in the build up to the new year.

Marco Silva’s side will be hopeful that Santa drops off three points in Merseyside a few days early as Everton look to break the so-called ‘big six’ heading into 2019.

Here’s our guide on how to watch the Toffees over the Christmas period.

1. Tottenham Hotspur (H)

Where: Goodison Park

When: Sunday 23rd December, 16:00 GMT

If there’s one thing Everton could probably do without the week after they travel to face Manchester City, it’s a home match with Tottenham who are currently on a high after progressing into the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The Toffees haven’t beaten Spurs in over six years in the Premier League, taking just five points out of a possible 33 in their last 11 meetings.

2. Burnley (A)

Where: Turf Moor

When: Wednesday 26th December, 15:00 GMT

Everton have only ever won one match at Turf Moor in the league, dating all the way back to the 1964/65 season. In fact, the Toffees have claimed all three points against Burnley in less than half of their meetings over the last 54 years.

The Clarets might be flirting with relegation this season, but Sean Dyche’s side can never be underestimated, something defender Michael Keane will remind his teammates about when he returns to Burnley for just the second time since leaving the club.

3. Brighton & Hove Albion (A)

Where: AMEX Stadium

When: Saturday 29th December, 15:00 GMT

Everton will make a long journey to the south coast to round off 2018 knowing that they are unbeaten against Brighton during the Premier League era.

If summer signing Richarlison can match his two-goal haul against the Seagulls from earlier this season then he will become the all-time top goalscorer in the fixture, overtaking former Brighton striker Michael Robinson.

4. Leicester City (H)

Where: Goodison Park

When: Tuesday 1st January, 12:30 GMT

How to Watch: Sky Sports Main Event / Sky Sports Premier League / NOW TV

Kicking off the new year with a home game is the perfect way to make a statement to your fans, and Everton will be confident of getting the boost they need at the start of the new year against Leicester City.

The Toffees have only ever lost 12 of the two’s previous 47 meetings, four of which have come during the Premier League era. Earlier this season, Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson proved to be the difference makers as Everton secured a 2-1 at the King Power Stadium in their first meeting of the campaign.
