Marco Silva’s side were also one of the most prolific outside the ‘Big Six’, with only Bournemouth finding the net more regularly than the Goodison Park outfit.
Having made promising signings such as Richarlison and Lucas Digne last summer, they will be eager to build from this foundation and enjoy similar success in the 2019-20 season.
Ahead of the upcoming campaign, Goal takes a look at Everton's pre-season friendly schedule, the club's transfer activity and when their Premier League push begins again.

Everton 2019-20 transfer activity
Everton have yet to announce any formal deals for their first team, although Danish teenager Sebastian Kristensen has been added from Lyngby for their academy side.
Marco Silva has reportedly been exploring options to strengthen his full-back sectors, with Thomas Meunier a potential arrival from Paris Saint-Germain on the right and Aaron Cresswell reportedly a target to supplement Lucas Digne on the left.
Marseille have said to have offered the Toffees the opportunity to buy Kevin Strootman, while reports have linked the Goodison club with a potential move for Fulham forward Aleksandr Mitrovic and Lyon attacker Bertrand Traore.
Ajax striker David Neres is another name closely linked with the club, with fans heartened to see him pose for photos with the Brazil national side along with Richarlison, a player they will do everything in their power to keep.
