Fans are all making the same point after Everton points deduction confirmed

Everton's 10-point deduction from the Premier League over a FFP rule breach has seen football fans ask the same question.

The Premier League confirmed the club's punishment in a statement published on Friday. It sees Sean Dyche's side drop from 14th to 19th in the table, only above Burnley on goal difference.

Everton were referred to an independent commission in March for breaching profitability and sustainability rules in the 2021/2022 season.

The Toffees are now the second team in Premier League history, after Portsmouth, to receive a points deduction.

In an official statement, Everton said they are 'shocked and disappointed' by the ruling and confirmed they intend to appeal the decision.

On social media, it's seen supporters bring up 115 charges issued against reigning champions Manchester City in February and an ongoing investigation into Chelsea breaking FFP rules.

City were charged with breaking financial fair play rules around 100 times, allegedly during a nine-year period between 2009 and 2018.

In that time, they became the leading force in English football and won three Premier League titles. City have denied any wrongdoing throughout the process.

Earlier this week, it was revealed in the Guardian that Chelsea are currently under investigation by the Premier League and Football Association over secret payments made by companies belonging to Roman Abramovich, Chelsea's owner between 2003 and 2022.

Chelsea have not been charged at the time of writing.

It's seen Twitter users question how Everton have managed to be charged so quickly compared to their top-flight rivals.

One person said: "City fans are hilarious they have 115 charges made against them and they still somehow think their club is innocent on all 115 charges."

Another tweeted: "When are they going to act on City's 115 charges?"

Someone put: "Ok, so Everton got the points deduction for FFP breaches, but why is everything quiet regarding City and Chelsea?"

While a fourth added: "They hate Everton and nothing can convince me otherwise."
