Everton have won only eight Premier League games this season

Everton FC have successfully appealed the 10-point penalty imposed upon them by the Premier League for breaching financial regulations.

The club were accused of violating profit and sustainability rules (PSR) during the 2021-22 season, leading to the severe punishment.

After reviewing the case, an appeal board consisting of three members ruled that the initial penalty was excessive and reduced it to six points.

As a result of the decision, Everton move up from 17th place to 15th in the current standings, with 12 games left to play. While the club still faces potential further penalties, this outcome provides some relief and hope for their future in the league.

Everton say they remain “fully committed to co-operating” with the Premier League over the second charge.

Everton, who have not won in the league win since 16 December, are now five points clear of the relegation zone with 12 games remaining, having leapfrogged Forest and Brentford.

Meanwhile, Luton find themselves four points from safety, albeit Hatters boss Rob Edwards welcomed the “clarity” around the situation and said his players just needed to focus on their own performances.

“We were in the bottom three before it anyway, but now it looks like we’re four points behind Nottingham Forest with a game in hand so the situation is the same from our point of view.”
