Everton’s 10-point deduction, imposed for breaching the Premier League’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules, has been reduced to six points on appeal.

It will see the Toffees move up to 15th in the table with 25-points on the board.

In a statement released on the Club’s website they say they are ‘particularly pleased’ with the decision to overturn the original Commission’s finding that the Club ‘failed to act in utmost good faith’ stating that this was an ‘incredibly important point of principle for the Club’.

The Premier League commented:

“Everton FC appealed the sanction imposed against it on nine grounds, each of which related to the sanction rather than the fact of the breach, which the club admitted.

“Two of those nine grounds were upheld by the Appeal Board, which has substituted the original points deduction of 10 for six.

“This revised sanction has immediate effect and the Premier League table will be updated today to reflect this.”
