Everton Football Club, based in Liverpool, hold the record for the most seasons spent in the English top flight.

Since being founded in 1878, the club has won the top division title nine times.

The Toffees also have five FA Cups as well as a European Cup Winners' Cup triumph to their name.

Everton have a famous friendly rivalry with Liverpool, their neighbours across Stanley Park.

During derby matches fans integrate and sit in the same parts of the stadium.

During the 1927-1928 campaign, Dixie Dean scored a record 60 league goals for Everton as they went on to win the First Division.

Everton enjoyed much success in the 60s and 80s.

In 1985, they nearly secured an incredible treble. After winning the League and the Cup Winners' Cup, they lost out in the FA Cup Final to Manchester United.

In more recent years, long term manager David Moyes secured consistently high Premier League finishes without ever really challenging for the title.

The Scottish manager left in 2013 to take over at Manchester United.
