Everton FC 2014 Premier League fixtures confirmed

Everton face a tough start to the season in 2014-15.

Everton have their fixture list for the upcoming season - and it is certainly not an easy start for Roberto Martinez's men. The Toffees had a great campaign last season, finishing in fifth position above Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

But they have to take on the two of the teams who finished above them in their opening three matches. They start the campaign with a tough away day to a buzzing King Power Stadium - where Leicester City will be playing their first Premier League game since winning promotion as champions from The Championship.

But then they face two tough ties. First up is Arsenal at Goodison Park, the side they almost pipped to the post in the hunt for Champions League football in 2013-14.

Then they welcome Chelsea to Merseyside. Jose Mourinho is improving the Blues this summer and they will certainly be a force to be reckoned with in August.

The start does not get any easier after that - with Liverpool away and Manchester United away to come in their next five. After ten games of the season, Everton's European credentials will be evidently clear.

A full list can be seen below, dates and times subject to change for television purposes.

Marquee fixtures for the rest of the season include Tottenham away on the 29th November and Manchester City away at the beginning of December.

The next Merseyside derby at Goodison Park comes in February, a tough fixture on the 7th followed up by another on the 11th - a trip to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea. So no love from the fixture list in the run up to Valentines Day.

Arsenal away comes at the end of the month with United visiting Goodison on the 25th April - with a difficult fixture against Tottenham Hotspur to finish off on the 24th May 2015.
