Everton make their first visit to Bloomfield Road, Blackpool for nearly 40 years on November 6th while the festive programme sees a home game on Boxing Day against Birmingham and trips to West Ham (Dec 28th) and Stoke (New Year's Day).
January sees intriguing matches against Spurs at home (5th) and the return Merseyside derby at Anfield (15th) while February brings trips to Arsenal (1st) and Bolton (12th) either side of home games against Blackpool (5th) and Sunderland (26th).
The Blues face a testing run-in after matches in March against Newcastle away (5th) and Fulham at Goodison (19th) with trips to Man Utd (April 23rd), Wigan (April 30th) and West Brom (May 14th).
