Everton to discover PSR fate before the end of the Premier League season

Everton to discover PSR fate before the end of the Premier League season

Everton will learn the outcome of their latest point deduction appeal before they take the field for their final Premier League match of the season. 

The Toffees, who are currently clinging to 16th place just two points clear of the drop zone, appealed against a recent two-point deduction for breaching financial regulations.

This two-point deduction came on top of a previous six-point penalty for similar financial infringements. 

Determined to avoid a nerve-wracking season finale, Everton wasted no time in formally appealing the second deduction imposed by a Premier League commission.

The independent appeal board have now announced their intention to deliver a verdict before the final round of matches on May 19th. 

This clarity will ensure a definitive league table but could still add to any last-minute drama surrounding relegation.

A Premier League statement read (via Everton website): “The independent Appeal Board has confirmed it intends to announce its decision regarding Everton Football Club before the last day of the current season.

“This follows Everton appealing the two-point deduction imposed by an independent Commission on the club following its admission of a breach of the Premier League’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules.

“The Appeal Board’s intention to make its decision public in advance of Sunday 19 May will provide certainty to all clubs and fans.

“If it is necessary, to achieve the intended timings, the Appeal Board will publish its written reasons separately, by no later than 1 June 2024, in accordance with the Premier League’s Standard Directions.”

While the appeal decision will undoubtedly be a major factor, Everton still have some work to do on the pitch after a miserable campaign. 

They were recently torn apart by Chelsea in a 6-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, but a somewhat favourable run-in suggests Sean Dyche’s side may decide their own fate.

Everton face four of the bottom six sides over their final six Premier League games, which also includes a Merseyside derby against Liverpool and a trip to Arsenal on the final day.

They will host Nottingham Forest in a must-win relegation six-pointer on Sunday afternoon, a game that could have dire consequences for both sides.
