As the Premier League standings is reshuffled, Arsenal gains an advantage over Liverpool in terms of points deduction

According to liverpoolecho, Arsenal’s prospects of winning the Premier League championship have improved. They’ll face Manchester City and Liverpool in March, resulting in nail-biting matchups for supporters. In addition, the Premier League’s recent decision to modify point deductions may have a role.

Everton was fined ten points last year for violating the Profit and Sustainability Rules. The club was upset, so they attempted to overturn the ruling, and everyone waited to see what happened. On Monday, an independent appeals body determined that Everton would not lose as many points as previously expected. Instead of 10, there will be six.

According to, the Premier League stated: “Everton FC appealed the sanction imposed against it on nine grounds, each of which related to the sanction rather than the fact of the breach, which the club admitted.”

They went on to explain: “The Appeal Board upheld two of those nine grounds, replacing the original points reduction of ten with six. This new punishment takes effect immediately, and the Premier League standings will be adjusted today to reflect it.
