Everton set to face another points deduction in Premier League
The Toffees already had 10 points deduction
According to rumours, if Everton are shown to have broken any expenditure regulations in their subsequent set of accounts, they could lose more points.
The Toffees were dropped to 19th place in the standings earlier this month after being docked 10 points for violating Premier League profit and long-term sustainability regulations.
Due to suspected violations about the 2021–2022 season, the club received a referral to an impartial committee in March. A hearing was held last month.
The Times now claims that Everton is getting ready to send the Premier League their 2022–2023 season’s accounting, with a deadline of December 31st.
The outlet asserts that violations of financial regulations will be expedited and addressed before the conclusion of the season per new regulations implemented throughout the summer.
As a result, there’s a chance the Toffees will lose additional points, and there are increasing concerns ‘that the same calculating system’ that determined their previous penalty will be applied again.

The Premier League lobbied for a significant points loss for Everton earlier this month to set an example following the club’s alleged financial rule violations in 2021–2022.
Over three years, the Toffees reported catastrophic financial losses of about £372 million.
That is more than £250 million higher than what clubs are allowed to lose over a rolling three-year period under Premier League rules. The League claimed Everton violated the profit and sustainability regulations (PSR) concerning the technical alleged infractions, which involved accounting methods.
Recently, Mail Sport disclosed how their 10-point punishment has raised questions over Sean Dyche’s position as first-team manager.
The former Burnley manager has revitalised the Toffees since taking over in January. He kept them from relegation the previous year and guided them to a respectable 14 points so far this season.
