Following last week's announcement of the 2013/14 Barclays Premier League fixtures, evertonfc.com looks back at another memorable opening day encounter...

Everton 2-1 Wigan Athletic - 11 August 2007


Everton started their memorable 2007/08 campaign in the best possible fashion with a 2-1 victory over Wigan Athletic.

Manager David Moyes resisted the temptation of handing new signings Phil Jagielka and Steven Pienaar their full debuts, while fellow summer recruit Leighton Baines missed out against his former club through injury.

The Toffees made the perfect start midway through the first half with Leon Osman finding the net with a looping header from Tony Hibbert’s cross.

It wasn’t until 15 minutes from time when Everton finally doubled their lead as Victor Anichebe scored from close range.

Wigan’s Antoine Sibierski pulled one back late on but Everton managed to hold on for the three points – their first of 16 victories that season en route to a fifth placed finish.
