According to reports in the English press on Monday, Everton’s Premier League points deduction has been reduced.

Everton have officially announced the reduction of the penalty imposed by the Premier League for breaching fair play rules, and journalist David Ornstein explained via Twitter that the penalty was reduced from 10 points to 6 points after the court hearing.

The Premier League had earlier said in an official statement that Everton had been docked 10 points in the EPL for breaching fair play rules following a complaint against the team earlier, and had also stated that the club had admitted to breaching financial fair play standards during the 2021-2022 season.

In an official statement, Everton described the penalty they received as harsh and completely unfair, and the club explained that they are shocked and disappointed by the decision of the Premier League Committee, and emphasised that the team was open and transparent in the information it provided to the committee.

Everton are currently 15th in the Premier League standings with 25 points, three points behind 14th-placed Bournemouth, and this season under Seán Dyche they are looking to avoid relegation and stay in the top flight of the Premier League.
