Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker have expressed their concerns about the complicated situation Everton find themselves in, with the potential of facing another deduction of points after their appeal against the initial one. Lineker pointed out that Everton’s winless streak of seven games in the Premier League is only adding to their current troubles due to the ongoing points deduction issue. Both Shearer and Lineker had expected the initial deduction to be reduced, but they emphasized that the uncertainty surrounding a possible second charge has further exacerbated Everton’s difficulties.
During an episode of The Rest is Football podcast, Lineker commented, “It’s a worrying period for them, especially after they had a particularly good run following the points deduction. They really rallied at that point.” Shearer then added, “In my opinion, they might regain some points, but there’s also a chance they might face another deduction. It’s a very complicated situation.”
Everton is eagerly awaiting the outcome of their appeal against the 10-point deduction imposed by the Premier League for breaching Profit and Sustainability rules. Pundits generally hold an optimistic view, suggesting that Everton might have some points restored. Reports indicate that the verdict will be announced in mid-February, creating anticipation as the date draws nearer. Another report suggests that the decision should be made before their upcoming match against Crystal Palace.
