After two seasons of flirting with relegation, including a final day escape last campaign, Everton are third favourites with bet365 to be relegated from the Premier League at 2/1.
The Toffees have never suffered relegation to the second tier since the inception of the Premier League, indeed they have only tasted relegation twice in their club's history, the last time coming way back in 1951.
However, following years of mismanaged investment, boardroom controversy and supporter unrest, Everton have struggled for results on the pitch and are 2/1 To be Relegated this season.
Despite their rocky start to the Premier League, a first win of the season has raised hopes on the Blue side of the Mersey, with an impressive away win at Brentford lifting the Toffees outside of the relegation zone for the first time this campaign.
Sean Dyche's men are still third favourites To be Relegated, however, back-to-back fixtures against relegation rivals Luton and Bournemouth may give Everton a chance to put some distance between themselves and the bottom three at this early stage.
Everton's problems are difficult to pinpoint as they have experienced so many in recent years, but the lack of consistency in recruitment and manager playing style has been evident.
Since losing long-serving manager David Moyes to Manchester United in 2013, Everton have employed eight permanent managers in the last 10 years.
In the last five years alone the club has had six different managers, with the likes of Sam Allardyce, Frank Lampard and Rafa Benitez lasting less than a year in charge before receiving their marching orders.
New signings simply haven't had the expected impact despite huge financial outlays by the clubs unpopular owner Farhad Moshiri, with the club having forked out over £600m on transfers since his arrival in 2016.
Sporting Directors have also come and gone, the club have hired three in the last five years.
All the while fans have voiced their discontent in protest at those in power at boardroom level. Not that the fans complaints have made much impact.
This summer as the fans waited for their expected resignations, Moshiri and long-standing chairman Bill Kenwright decided instead to increase their power at the club, moving themselves into even more senior roles.
The most worrying factor for fans and Dyche on the pitch however is the stark lack of goals that Everton produce, they were the second lowest scorers in the division last season as they escaped relegation by just two points.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin is considered the biggest goal threat for the Toffees, but he has become more acquainted with the physio table than the back of the net in recent seasons.
New signing Beto will hope to provide some firepower for Dyche's men, but both forwards are at least 200/1 to be Premier League Top Goalscorer this campaign, hardly a ringing endorsement for the frontline at Goodison Park.
Everton have suffered relegation twice in their history, both coming long before the start of the Premier League.
The most recent was in the 1950/51 season, but before the you have to go all the way back to the 1929-1930 season for the last time the club dropped out of the top flight.
Despite recent troubles Everton have a rich history of top flight football, only Arsenal have a longer uninterrupted spell at the peak of English football than the Toffees.
Indeed, Everton have now played in the top division longer than than Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea, all of whom have suffered relegation more recently than Everton.
