When fans are allowed back into grounds, there’s nothing better than a big win to get them going.
Those afternoons when everything goes right and every shot seems to fly in are rare but sweet when they come around.
Here is a look at Everton’s biggest wins of all-time…
Everton 11-2 Derby
Everton’s biggest ever win came in January 1890 against Derby County in the FA Cup.
This is the only time the Toffees have ever got into double figures.
Everton 9-1 Manchester City
A First Division match in September 1906 saw Everton smash in nine goals against City.
The finances of modern football means a repeat result is unlikely any time soon.
