Everton’s biggest 16/17 Premier League fixtures

In what was a disappointing season for Everton that resulted in the sacking of Roberto Martinez, the new investors at Everton have big ambitions and big money to spend.

This will undoubtedly lead to bigger expectations from fans, who will be expecting to witness a new look Everton.

No least because new boss Ronald Koeman will be hoping to spend some huge cash to rebuild the unconvincing Everton side of last season with his own names.

The new money can bring a new element to the Merseyside derby, too, and the stakes couldn’t be higher with both Liverpool and Everton hoping to return to fighting for a top four finish sooner rather than later.
