Some big breaking news has emerged this afternoon, announcing that Everton have been hit with a 10-point deduction for breaching the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules.
The points deduction will apply immediately, seeing them move from 14th (14 points) to 19th (four points), despite winning three of their last five games under Sean Dyche.
The Toffees are expected to appeal the decision immediately and are said to be ‘flabbergasted’ by the decision. Newcastle’s next Premier League away game? A trip to Goodison Park on December 7th!
A Premier League statement has confirmed this on Friday lunchtime. Read it in full below, followed by an updated table following the deduction:
“An independent Commission has imposed an immediate deduction of 10 points on Everton FC for a breach of the Premier League’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSRs).
“The Premier League issued a complaint against the club and referred the case to an independent commission earlier this year. During the proceedings, the club admitted it was in breach of the PSRs for the period ending Season 2021/22 but the extent of the breach remained in dispute.
“Following a five-day hearing last month, the commission determined that Everton FC’s PSR calculation for the relevant period resulted in a loss of £124.5million, as contended by the Premier League, which exceeded the threshold of £105million permitted under the PSRs. The commission concluded that a sporting sanction in the form of a 10-point deduction should be imposed. That sanction has immediate effect.”
