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.

Everton 9-1 Plymouth

In December 1930, the Toffees were in the Second Division, there they handed out a thumping to Argyle.

Dixie Dean and Tommy Stein scored four goals apiece and Everton went on to win the league at the end of the season.

Everton 9-1 Southport

An FA Cup tie in February 1931 saw Everton clinch yet another 9-1 win.

Dean once again bagged four goals, and it’s no surprise he remains the record goalscorer in the club’s history.

Everton 8-0 Stoke

All the way back in November 1889, Everton secured another eight-goal winning margin.

Everton have had 9-2 (against Leicester in November 1931) and 9-3 (against Sheffield Wednesday in October 1931) wins but obviously this is the greater margin of victory.

Everton 8-0 Doncaster

In January 1939, Tommy Lawton bagged four as Everton thumped Doncaster in the FA Cup fourth round in front of more than 41,000 fans at Goodison Park.

Everton 8-0 Southampton

November 1971 saw the Saints thrashed in the First Division.

This time it was Joe Royle who smashed in four goals, with David Johnson also chipping in with a hat-trick.

The win came on the back of a 1-0 win at Anfield and remains the club’s biggest-ever post-war league victory.

Everton 8-0 Wimbledon

The most recent of the four 8-0 wins came in August 1978 in the League Cup.

Bob Latchford bagged five goals with Martin Dobson completing the scoring with a hat-trick.

Notable mentions: Everton 8-1 Darwen (1893), Everton 8-1 Sheffield Wednesday (1893), Everton 8-1 Newcastle (1931)
