Everton’s Premier League points deduction reduced in massive boost to Sean Dyche’s side

Everton have had their points reduced for breaking the Premier League's profit and sustainability regulations following appeals verdict.

The Toffees were referred to an independent commission in March for alleged breaches relating to the 2021-22 season and initially deducted ten points.

However, the latest ruling means Everton will see that deduction reduced to six points, and move to 25 points and 15th in the Premier League.

The club labelled the initial 10-point deduction — the biggest in the competition’s history and first relating to financial fair play rules — as “wholly disproportionate and unjust”.

Everton still face another potential points deduction, however, after they were charged with breaching the rules for a second time in January along with Nottingham Forest.

Only three clubs have previously been docked points in Premier League history.

Middlesbrough were deducted three points for failing to fulfil a fixture against Blackburn Roversin 1996/97.

In March 2010, Portsmouth were stripped of nine points after entering administration.

Tottenham were also handed a 12-point deduction before the 1994/95 season for financial irregularities committed several seasons prior. However that punishment was ultimately revoked.
