1. Premier League
In the 2020-21 Premier League, Everton ended up with tenth place, after Leeds United at ninth and Arsenal at eighth positions. Since they have never succeeded in this prestigious English league with the highest standing of Everton being fourth place in the 2005 edition, it is not a surprise that they have finished 10th.
They won a total of 17 matches out of 38 matches, and six of them are home wins, 11 games winning at away grounds. Everton also had eight draws and 13 losing games in both home and away grounds. Their final points were 59, the same as Leeds United but their conceded goals have been one goal more than the goals they have scored while Leeds have eight goals difference.
