Goal gives you the complete look at the Toffees' full fixtures least for the upcoming season, including all pre-season and Premier League games

Everton are a club currently in the middle of transation, having dismissed Sam Allardyce and replaced him with ex-Watford boss Marco Silva.

The Blues did plenty of business in the transfer window after last year's efforts proved to be lukewarm, with Silva keen to rebuild the club and improve on their recent eighth-place finish.

Club veteran Wayne Rooney made the switch to MLS side D.C. United during the window, and Silva has brought in players that will complement the likes of established stars Cenk Tosun and Theo Walcott, who still have something to prove at Goodison Park.

Goal  brings you your complete guide to Everton's 2018 pre-season tour as well as their complete 2018-19 Premier League schedule with dates, venues and all you need to know about the preparations for the new season.

An enthralling 0-22 win over Irdning coupled with low-key 1-1 draw with local side Bury opened Everton's pre-season run of fixtures, before two defeats - one after penalties - in Portugal to Lille and Porto.

Marco Silva's side returned to the UK for a friendly against newly-promoted Championship side Blackburn Rovers on July 26, and will finish with a home tie against Spanish side Valencia.

Everton's 2018-19 transfer activity

Everton dipped into the transfer market with the acquisition of Brazilian winger Richarlison and Barcelona trio Lucas Digne, Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes. As well as that, they brought in Brazilian forward Bernard on a free transfer. 

The Toffees released striker Wayne Rooney from the club after he returned to his boyhood side following a long spell at Manchester United, which will have loosened their wage kitty, while Davy Klaassen departed for Werder Bremen.
