Relegation Faces Chelsea, Man City In EPL Following Everton’s Point Deduction

Chelsea and Manchester City face potential relegation from the Premier League after Everton incurred a 10-point deduction for breaching Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations. The commission found Everton exceeded the allowed threshold, resulting in the immediate sporting sanction.

Stefan Borson, a former financial advisor to Manchester City, contends that Everton’s penalty establishes a precedent. City is confronting 115 alleged breaches, while Chelsea may face scrutiny over payments linked to former owner Roman Abramovich.

Borson expressed concern on Twitter, stating that Everton’s 10-point deduction seems harsh for a straightforward FFP breach. He suggests that Chelsea and Manchester City should be wary, emphasizing the potential for relegation-inducing consequences.

Borson also highlights the need for Chelsea to reconsider their approach, especially in light of the significant sporting sanction. The upcoming January window could bring interesting developments, and Chelsea’s previous strategy may need urgent reconsideration. Only two other clubs in Premier League history have faced points deductions.
