The 2012–13 season was Everton's 21st season in the Premier League and 59th consecutive season in the top division of English football. It is also Everton's 114th season of league football and 116th season in all competitions. Having finished in seventh position in the domestic league in the previous season, Everton missed out on competing in any European competitions for the third season running.

The club entered the League Cup in the second round and were knocked out in the subsequent round following a 2–1 away defeat by Championship side Leeds United. Everton entered the FA Cup in the third round and progressed to the quarter-finals where they suffered a 3–0 loss at home to Premier League relegation candidates Wigan Athletic. Everton had a very consistent league campaign, never dropping below seventh place throughout the whole season. Highlights included a 1–0 win over Manchester United in the first game of the season, scoring two stoppage time goals to defeat Tottenham Hotspur 2–1 and a 2–0 home win over reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.[1] However, too many draws and a lack of goals saw Everton's push for a European place fade and they finished sixth in the league. It did mean that the club finished above rivals Liverpool for the second successive season for the first time since 1937.[2]

On 9 May, manager David Moyes announced he would be ending his 11 year tenure at the club when his contract expired at the end of the season, to become the new manager of Manchester United. Moyes transformed the club from struggling at the lower end of the league to regularly competing for the European places. He took charge of the team for over 500 games, including four European campaigns despite often working with a limited budget.[3] Everton's average league position under his management was eighth and they never finished below this in each of his last seven seasons.[4] However, he also received criticism for never winning a trophy during his time at the club.[4][5]

Season overview[edit]

June[edit]

On 1 June 2012, Everton's first pre-season friendly fixtures were announced: an away game against League Two side Morecambe F.C. acting as a testimonial to Morecambe's player-manager Jim Bentley, and a second away fixture against Scottish Premier League side Dundee United,[6] and on 7 June 2012 a second match to be played in Scotland was announced, against Motherwell F.C. at their home ground Fir Park Stadium.[7] A further three friendly fixtures were later determined: a home game against AEK Athens as a testimonial match for Everton's long-serving defender Tony Hibbert,[8] and away matches against Blackpool F.C. and Spanish side Málaga, the latter serving as the twenty-ninth edition of the annual Trofeo Costa del Sol friendly competition.[7][9][10] Everton was also initially scheduled to take part in the inaugural edition of the Java Cup, a four-team competition held in Indonesia, but later withdrew due to scheduling difficulties and security concerns.[11]

July[edit]

On 4 July, Everton made their first move of the summer transfer window, bringing in former Rangers striker Steven Naismith, who had refused to sign a contract to move him from the old Rangers to the new company following their liquidation.[12]

On 14 July, Everton won their first pre-season match against Morecambe at the Globe Arena on 14 July 2012, with a score of 4–1, with recent recruit Francisco Júnior scoring his first ever goal for the club.[13]

On 26 July, Tim Cahill's eight-year stay at the club came to an end when he signed for the New York Red Bulls in a £1 million deal.[14]

On 31 July, Steven Pienaar, who had made a huge impact during his loan spell at the end of last season, signed permanently for the club for £4.5 million and thus began his third stint at Everton.[15]

August[edit]

On 6 August, Fenerbahçe completed a £2 million move for Joseph Yobo, who had not played for Everton since May 2010 due to two season-long loans at the Turkish side.[16]

On 8 August, during his testimonial match against AEK Athens, Tony Hibbert (the player with the longest current spell without scoring a goal in English football) broke his goalscoring duck with a 25 yard free-kick, the last of Everton's goals in a 4–1 win. Hibbert is still yet to score a competitive goal in his career.[17]

On 12 August, reigning Premier League champions Manchester City signed Jack Rodwell for £12 million, which could rise to £17 million depending on individual and team performances.[18]

On 19 August, Belgium international Kevin Mirallas signed for the club from Greek champions Olympiacos for a £6 million fee.[19]

On 20 August, Everton began their season with a 1–0 win over last year's runners-up Manchester United. Marouane Fellaini was the scorer, with a headed goal in the 57th minute. This was the first time in five years that Everton had won their opening league game.[20]

On 25 August, Everton took their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 11 games following a 3–1 away victory against Aston Villa.[21]

On 29 August, new signing Mirallas scored his first and second goals for the club during an emphatic 5–0 League Cup win over Leyton Orient to help Everton advance to the third round.[22]

On 31 August, the final day of the summer transfer window, Everton signed versatile Costa Rican international Bryan Oviedo from Danish side Copenhagen for an undisclosed fee, believed to be £5 million.[23]

September[edit]

On 1 September, Everton missed the chance to extend their unbeaten run in the league to 12 games when they lost 0–2 to West Bromwich Albion.[24] If they had avoided defeat it would have been their longest spell without a loss since the title winning 1984–85 season.[25]

On 22 September, Everton beat Swansea City 3–0 to move to 2nd place in the league and ensure they have never lost a league encounter against the Welsh side.[26][27]

On 25 September, Everton were knocked out of the League Cup following a 1–2 defeat by Championship side Leeds United in the third round at Elland Road.[28]

On 29 September, Everton recorded their fourth win in the Premier League after they beat Southampton 3–1 at Goodison Park. The win saw them move up to 2nd in the table.[29]

October[edit]

On 9 October, David Moyes was named Premier League manager of the month for September.[30]

On 19 October, Everton signed free agent Thomas Hitzlsperger until January on a short term contract. The German international has 52 caps and had been without a club since leaving Wolfsburg at the end of last season.[31]

On 21 October, following the club's 1–1 draw with Queens Park Rangers, Everton had scored 15 goals from 8 games, their best ever scoring start to a Premier League season.[32]

On 28 October, Everton faced Liverpool in the Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park. The game saw Everton grab a 2–2 draw after being two goals down.[33]

November[edit]

On 3 November, the club drew 2–2 with Fulham at Craven Cottage. This meant Everton had drawn a game for the fourth successive time.[34]

On 10 November, Everton ended a run of four successive draws with a 2–1 win over Sunderland to remain 4th in the table. It was the sixth game in a row where Everton had avoided defeat after going a goal down and stretched David Moyes' unbeaten run against Sunderland to 18 matches in his 400th Premier League game.[35]

On 17 November, Everton lost to Reading. This was Everton's first league defeat in 9 games.

On 24 November, Everton drew at home with Norwich. Norwich's 90th minute goal was the third time this season that Everton had conceded a last minute equaliser.

December[edit]

On 1 December, Everton drew 1–1 with title holders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. This result meant that Everton had been unbeaten in 6 out of the last 7 meetings with City. The result also meant that Everton had drawn 7 of their last 9 games.

On 9 December, the club scored two stoppage time goals to beat Tottenham Hotspur 2–1. The first of these goals, a header from Steven Pienaar, was Everton's 1,000th in the Premier League.[36]

On 11 December, Marouane Fellaini was named Premier League Player of the Month for November after scoring four goals in Everton's five games during the month.[37]

On 15 December, Fellaini again made the headlines for apparently headbutting Ryan Shawcross in Everton's 1–1 draw at Stoke City. Fellaini subsequently received a 3 match ban for his actions. Stoke's goal was the 1,000th that Everton have conceded in the Premier League era.[38]

On 22 December, Everton travelled to West Ham and won 2–1. This game marked the first time that a Moyes's Everton side had recovered from a goal down at half-time to win away from home.

On 26 December, Everton defeated Wigan Athletic at Goodison Park 2–1. This result meant that Everton stretched their unbeaten run to 7 league games. Wigan's consolation goal also meant that Everton had failed to keep a clean sheet in any of the previous 14 games they had played.

On 30 December, Everton lost to Chelsea at home, ending an unbeaten run at Goodison Park that stretched back to March.

January[edit]

On 2 January, Everton won 2–1 at Newcastle United, marking the first time in 21 months that they had won successive away games. The club scored and conceded for the 16th consecutive game which is a Premier League record.[39]

On 7 January, Everton progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 5–1 away win at League Two side Cheltenham Town.[40]

On 12 January, Everton drew 0–0 at home to Swansea City, keeping their first clean sheet in 19 league and cup games, whilst they failed to score for the first time in the last 21 league and cup games.

On 28 January, the club won through to the fifth round of the FA Cup following a 2–1 away defeat of Championship side Bolton Wanderers.[41]

On 30 January Everton defeated West Bromwich Albion 2-1 at Goodison Park.

On 31 January Everton made their only signing of the January transfer window, 18 year old John Stones from Barnsley F.C. for a fee reported to be in the region of 3 million pounds.

February[edit]

On 2 February, Everton rallied from a two goal deficit to draw at home with relegation strugglers Aston Villa.

On 16 February, Everton conceded an injury time equaliser to Oldham Athletic in the fifth round of the FA Cup, forcing a replay at Goodison Park at the end of the month.

On 23 February, Everton conceded an injury time winner to Norwich City to lose 2–1 at Carrow Road. The defeat meant that Everton lost for the second time in a row.[42]

On 26 February, the club advanced to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup following a 3–1 victory over Oldham in the replay.[43]

March[edit]

On 12 March, Everton begin the month with a 3–1 win over Reading.[44]

On 9 March, Everton crashed out of the FA Cup with a 0–3 home defeat by Premier League relegation candidates Wigan Athletic, with all three goals coming in less than four first-half minutes.[45]

On 16 March, Everton bounced back in the league to beat reigning champions Manchester City 2–0 at Goodison Park, despite playing with 10 men from the 60th minute with the score at 1–0, when Steven Pienaar was dismissed.[46] The win came on the day of Moyes' 11th anniversary with the club.[47]

On 30 March, Everton defeated Stoke City 1–0. It was Everton's third league win in a row.

April[edit]

On 5 April, David Moyes was named Premier League Manager of the Month for March, the second time he has won the award this season and the 10th in total.[48]

On 7 April, Everton drew 2–2 at Tottenham Hotspur, ending a 3 game winning streak.

On 20 April, Everton suffered a 1–0 defeat at Sunderland, hampering their bid for European qualification.
