Comments:

Final league position 2015-16: 11th Former Everton manager Joe Royle and Under-21s coach David Unsworth took charge of the Toffees' final game of the season after manager Roberto Martinez was sacked earlier in the week. This was Everton's sixth win at Goodison Park in this season in the Premier League. 1957-58 is the only season when they had won fewer home league games (five). Leighton Baines had now taken 23 penalties for Everton and scored 21 of them. [c/o Steve Johnson, Everton Complete Record].

Comments:

Final league position 2015-16: 19th Norwich City had now been relegated from the Premier League for a fourth time; a joint record with Crystal Palace. The Canaries had now lost nine of their last ten Premier League away games and failed to score in eight of them. City kept a divisional low of only five clean sheets in the Premier League in 2015-16.
