Everton will travel to Tottenham on the opening weekend of the 2020-21 Premier League season.

The Toffees will kick off their new campaign by facing José Mourinho’s side at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the weekend commencing September 12, before their first home game of the season a week later against West Brom.

Both of these games will be played behind closed doors as a consequence of the coronavirus pandemic, as will Everton’s third match of the season away to Crystal Palace on the weekend of September 26.

It is hoped that fans will gradually begin to re-enter Premier League stadia from the weekend of October 3, when Everton will face Brighton at Goodison Park.

Clashes at home to Liverpool (October 17) and away to Southampton (October 24) complete the opening six fixtures for Ancelotti’s side.

The return meeting with Liverpool at Anfield will take place on February 20.

The festive period sees Everton visit Sheffield United on Boxing Day, while they host West Ham on January 2, with a home clash with Manchester City sandwiched in-between on Monday, December 28.

The season concludes for the Blues with an away game against City on Sunday, May 23, 2021.
