Everton ‘sued’, Diaz heroics & injury boost – Latest Liverpool FC News

Thursday’s news was dominated by Premier League sanctions against Liverpool’s rivals – and it could get even worse for Everton following later updates.


Everton docked points – and it could get worse

After being charged by the Premier League for breaching financial rules, Everton‘s punishment was announced on Thursday afternoon.

They have been docked 10 points with immediate effect, which has seen Sean Dyche’s side drop from 14th to 19th in the table, leaving them with as many points as bottom-placed Burnley.

Everton have already confirmed that they will appeal the decision, but they are also facing pressure from elsewhere.

The Mail‘s Matt Hughes reports that Burnley, Leeds and Leicester have “confirmed their intention to sue Everton for a total of £300 million.”

This comes after Burnley were relegated to the Championship in 2021 and both Leeds and Leicester the following year, with their belief that Everton‘s overspending directly impacted their fate.
