EPL table ranked by all-time own goals: Which teams are unluckiest?
- 296 views
The Toffees are one of six ever-present clubs since the top flight was rebranded ahead of the 1992-93 season, and they have turned the ball into their own net 48 times since then.
Of the other five ever-present sides, Tottenham have got the best record, only scoring 33 own goals to make it into 11th place on the all-time list.
Aston Villa, who played every EPL season until relegation in 2016, are second to Everton with 45 own goals - despite not being able to add to their tally for the last two-and-a-bit seasons.
Arsenal and Liverpool are then joined in joint-third place by Sunderland - who have played 11 fewer EPL campaigns, but clearly have a penchant for putting the ball into their own net.
Somewhat impressively, their local rivals Newcastle - who have played 24 of the 27 EPL seasons - are down in 13th place with only 29 own goals.
West London rivals Fulham and QPR both score own goals more often than most clubs.
The Cottagers have turned in a whopping 36 in just 14 seasons, while the Hoops make it to 19th place with 22 in only seven campaigns.
Leeds are the most experienced EPL club - with 12 seasons - not to make the top 20, having only scored 14 own goals before their relegation in 2004.
