David Ornstein gives his view on if Man City will be relegated after Everton points deduction due to FFP rules

David Ornstein has given his view on whether Manchester City face relegation from the Premier League following Everton's 10-point deduction.

The Toffees were slapped with the sanction on Friday, sending them from 14th to 19th in the table.

Sean Dyche's side have gone from 14 points to four points. They're two points from safety and have replaced Luton Town in the bottom three.

In the wake of Everton's points deduction, fans and pundits alike have brought up the 115 charges issued against reigning champions City.

Back in February, City were charged with breaking financial fair play rules around 100 times, allegedly during nine years between 2009 and 2018.

Chelsea are also under investigation by the Premier League and Football Association over secret payments made by companies belonging to Roman Abramovich, the Blues' owner between 2003 and 2022.

It's seen financial experts claim the two clubs could be relegated from the Premier League if found guilty.

Ornstein decided to have his say on the latest episode of The Overlap's 'Stick To Football' podcast from Sky Bet, stressing the charges could lead to a different punishment entirely.

He explained: “We must talk about the fact that the cases involving Manchester City and Chelsea are not the same as Everton’s. Everyone is saying that Manchester City must be relegated if found guilty, but we don’t know because they are not charged with the same things.”

Everton intend to appeal the Premier League's decision, which they've called 'unjust' in a strongly-worded statement.

Roy Keane believes it's time for the club to 'move on' and 'take their medicine'.

The Manchester United legend said: “Could Everton just hold their hands up and take their medicine?

"I know it’s extreme with 10 points, but it brings a bit of closure to Everton after a difficult few years, and we all think that from a football point of view, they’ll still be able to stay up.

"They’ll have enough to stay up, have got a cup game coming up, and can try and get the feel-good factor back in the club and take their medicine, have closure, move on, and learn from their past mistakes.”
