During the 1991–92 English football season, Everton F.C. competed in the Football League First Division.

Season summary[edit]

The summer of 1991 saw the departure of Everton hero Graeme Sharp but the attack was bolstered by Peter Beardsley who was signed from Liverpool and Mo Johnston from Rangers.

Despite these changes to the squad, in the 1991-92 season Everton continued to deteriorate, finishing 12th - their lowest finish for more than a decade.
