History of the Portsmouth v Everton fixture

Portsmouth play host to Everton at Fratton Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Pompey are clearly on top, winning 56.52% of the games played between the two.

The last time the two teams met at Portsmouth was back in October 1994, over five years ago, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League Cup match.
