5. Everton launch appeal over second points deduction of the season

Everton have formally filed an appeal against their second-point deduction for violating the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules. The Toffees received a second punishment last week after admitting a £16.6 million violation for the three-year cycle until the 2022–23 season. Earlier this season, they were punished with a ten-point deduction, which was later reduced to a six-point deduction for violating PSR regulations during the evaluation period before the 2021–22 season.

According to an independent panel, Everton violated the profit and sustainability regulations (PSR) by £16.6 million during the three years leading up to 2022–2023—a limit that allows teams to lose up to £105 million over three years, which was the reason why they have been handed the second deduction. They currently sit in 16th place in the Premier League, just two points clear of the relegation zone.
