Manchester United and Chelsea are having a poor season in the Premier League. Chelsea is on 35 points while Man United is on 44 points. Everton suffered a 10-point deduction from the Premier League in November for breaching Financial Fair Play rules. Everton appealed the deduction, and after a few months of battling with the Premier League, they got a small win by having the points deducted reduced.

Everton's 10-point deduction has been reduced to 6 after the appeal to the Premier League. It will take place with immediate effect, and it will have a huge impact on a relegation battle for other clubs. Everton is now 15th in the Premier League with 25 points and is 5 points clear above the relegation zone. Everton was satisfied with the appeal, allowing the points to be reduced, stating that "the club is also particularly pleased with the Appeal Board’s decision to overturn the original Commission’s finding that the Club failed to act in utmost good faith.”

Everton's statement started by saying, "While the Club is still digesting the Appeal Board’s decision, we are satisfied our appeal has resulted in a reduction in the points sanction. We understand the Appeal Board considered the 10-point deduction originally imposed to be inappropriate when assessed against the available benchmarks of which the Club made the Commission aware, including the position under the relevant EFL regulations, and the 9-point deduction that is imposed under the Premier League’s own rules in the event of insolvency."
