Everton’s punishment for breaching Premier League financial rules has been reduced from 10 points to six after an appeal.

Recall that the club was slammed with a10-point deduction in November for breaching profit and sustainability rules (PSR) in the three-year period to 2021-22.

The punishment, the harshest in Premier League history – took Everton from 14th to 19th in the table while the reduction in the ban lifts them from 17th to 15th.

They are facing another possible points deduction after being charged in January with breaching rules for a second time.
