During the 2001–02 English football season, Everton competed in the FA Premier League.

Season summary[edit]

The Everton directors finally lost patience with Walter Smith when they sacked him on 13 March. Preston boss David Moyes was named as his successor, and did a good job of steering Everton clear of the drop zone – though they finished 15th in the table.

Kit[edit]

Everton retained the previous season's kit, manufactured by Puma and sponsored by one2one.[2]
