Everton points deduction reduced after appeal verdict

Everton’s 10-point deduction for breaching the profit and sustainability rules (PSR) has been reduced to six after an appeal. 

The Toffees received the biggest sporting sanction in Premier League history in November for breaking spending rules. 

The docked 10 points had dropped them from 14th to 19th in the league standings

But the reduction of the punishment means they have now climbed from 17th to 15th in the table on 25 points. 

Although that is great news for Everton fans, the club is also facing another possible points deduction. 

The Merseyside outfit and Nottingham Forest were charged for alleged breaches in their accounts for 2022-23 in January. 

According to BBC Sport, that case must be heard by 8 April but any appeal could take that process to 24 May, which will be five days after the season’s conclusion. 

Tricky fixture

Everton face a tricky fixture next weekend as they host West Ham United at Goodison Park, with the game available to watch via Premier League live streaming sites

Sean Dyche’s men are winless in their last nine top-flight matches, but have secured five draws out of their previous six fixtures. 

They looked on course for a brilliant away victory at Brighton & Hove Albion after Jarrad Branthwaite broke the deadlock on 73 minutes. 

But Lewis Dunk’s stoppage-time header ensured the spoils of the game were shared at the Amex. 

West Ham will be high on confidence following their 4-2 success over Brentford on Monday, with Jarrod Bowen bagging an excellent hat-trick.
