Arsenal is the only club that was not ever demoted, so the question of promotion never arises.

Woolwich Arsenal were relegated in 1913 they are the same team only the Woolwich was dropped after they moved to Highbury. In the 1914/15 season they were still playing in the second division as Arsenal. The First Division was increased from 20 to 22 clubs for the 1919/20 season and even though they only finished 5th they were promoted above Barnsley and Wolves and at the expense of Tottenham who were relegated. It is rumoured that their chairman Sir Henry Norris was linked to some dubious backroom deals

When did Everton last win a league title?

It's often said that Everton have never been relegated, but it just isn't true. They were relegated to the second division in 1931 and came straight back up the following year. They were also relegated in 1951, and came back to the top flight in 1954. They have spent more seasons in English Footballs top division than any other club (104 out of 109 season in total) and have the second longest unbroken run in the top flight. Arsenal have the longest, as they were promoted in 1919 (under suspicious circumstances) and have not been relegated since.

What team has never been relegated from the premier league?

There are no league teams still in existence that have never been relegated. Arsenal are the team to have gone the longest without relegation. Quite right. Arsenal were only relegated once in their entire history - in 1913. They were voted back into the top division in 1919 and have remained there ever since, longer than anyone else.
