Everton set to launch appeal over points deduction

Everton have announced their decision to launch an appeal over their second points deduction by the Premier League over financial rules.

The Toffees, expected to be bought by new American ownes, 777 Partners, could be relegated from the topflight depending on the results they get - and that of the clubs around them on the table.

The Merseysiders'appeal for breaching Profit and Sustainability Rules process must be concluded by 24 May, five days after the final game of the Premier League season on 19 May.

The complexities over the conclusion of the hearing has raised dust as the status of the club being a Premier League side or not is unknown. They are two points off the drop on 27 points.

Sean Dyche's side will face Chelsea on Monday night in the Premier League.

Everton's second round of points deductions come after admitting a financial breach of £16.6million for the three-year cycle up to the 2022/23 season and that saw them drop one place down in the table to 16th.

The club's first points deduction took place in November 2023. An appeal then led to that 10 being reduced to six points in February.

Nottingham Forest - one place below Everton in the table and one point off the drop - have also launched an appeal against the decision.
