Everton points deduction: BBC Sport’s Simon Stone says story not over yet

Manager Sean Dyche says the “clarity” around Everton’s Premier League points deduction has given the whole club a boost.

Everton’s penalty for breaching financial rules was this week reduced from 10 points to six on appeal.

That lifted them from 17th to 15th in the table, although they face another points deduction for a further breach.

“We’re pleased we got something back. You’re always greedy, aren’t you? Want more,” said Dyche.

“The points the club made have obviously been listened to and we got the four points back.

“We’ll take that and it brings clarity to the situation, which is good for us, good for the players, but good for all actually.”

Everton host West Ham in the league on Saturday, their first game since the appeal verdict.

Everton’s points deduction related to breaking profit and sustainability rules (PSR) in the three-year period to 2021-22.

They and Nottingham Forest have also been charged for alleged breaches in their accounts for the three years until 2022-23.

That case must be heard by 8 April, but any appeal could extend the process to 24 May, the week after the season ends.

Asked about the outstanding case, Dyche said: “There’s nothing we can do at this time. The main focus was on this appeal and what came from it.

“We’ve certainly parked that now because it’s become a fact. The line’s drawn under that now – the players are clear of that.

“We’ll take on the rest of the season with an open mind.”
