Everton Officially Appeal Against 10-Point Deduction
Everton have officially appealed against the decision to deduct them 10 Premier League points.
The Merseyside club were handed the severe punishment last month after being found guilty of breaking the Premier League's Profit and Sustainability rules.
Everton dropped from 14th to 19th when the punishment was announced and their fans protested the decision during last weekend's 3-0 home loss to Manchester United.
It is the highest point deduction ever to be handed out to a Premier League club.
The club released a short statement on Friday, which read: "Everton Football Club has today lodged with the Chair of the Premier League’s Judicial Panel its appeal of the decision by a Premier League Commission to impose a 10-point deduction on the Club.
"An Appeal Board will now be appointed to hear the case."
Everton's next game will come against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
