Two more Premier League clubs are facing questions over FFP breaches

Premier League chiefs have been urged to explain alleged 'inconsistent' FFP investigations following Everton's 10-point deduction.

The Toffees are now 19th in the table, only above bottom side Burnley on goal difference, after breaching Profit and Sustainability rules.

Everton believe their punishment is 'a wholly disproportionate and unjust sporting sanction' and intend to appeal the decision.

In a strongly-worded statement, the Merseyside outfit also claimed: "The club will monitor with great interest the decisions made in any other cases concerning the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules."

Per The Sun, questions have been asked regarding a lack of investigation around Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

In July, United were slapped with a £257,000 fine for 'minor' breaches of UEFA regulations between 2019 and 2022.

Three years prior, Wolves were fined £175,000 for similar breaches.

Questions have also been asked about investigations into Manchester City and Chelsea.

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.

Lawyers and experts are asking why action has been taken against these two clubs, while none has been taken against clubs who've breached UEFA regulations.

An independent commission which heard the Everton case claimed Premier League executive Richard Masters said a six-point deduction should be the starting point for any team that breaches financial rules.

It's viewed as 'inconsistent' that United and Wolves didn't face an investigation or charge after being ruled guilty by UEFA.
