Everton (1994-1995) and Queens Park Rangers (2012-2013)
It is both Everton and QPR who hold the title for making the worst start to a Premier League season in history as they took only four points from the first 12 games.
These were two teams with differing fortunes as QPR finished rock-bottom whereas Everton, with a change of manager, altered their fate as Joe Royle took them from bottom to 15th, preserving Everton’s top-flight status.
In Premier League history, only this Everton side and Wigan in 2011-12 have managed to attain Premier League security after achieving six points or less in the first 12 games and for this current season, Newcastle and Sunderland fans should already be worried.
They are both currently on track to beat the record for the worst start to a Premier League season and if their fortunes don’t change over the course of the next six games, both sides may find themselves fighting relegation early on in the season.
