Chelsea have been warned they could face relegation from the Premier League after fellow Premier League side Everton were deducted 10 points for breaching the Premier League financial fair play rules.
Everton have been handed a 10-point deduction by the Premier League, which will see the Toffees now fight a relegation battle.
Everton have dropped from 14th to 19th in the table as a result of being charged in March for breaching FFP regulations after recording financial losses of £371.8 million over a three-year period when the competition’s limit is £105m.
With Chelsea also being probed, Stefan Borson, a lawyer who has advised City in the past, now believes Man City and Chelsea are at risk of a harsher punishment than Everton have received.
Borson posted on X: Without seeing the judgement/award -10 points for Everton feels harsh fora straightforward FFP Financial Fair Play] breach to me.
“But reinforces that sanctions against City [if proven] and now Chelsea [if charged and admitted on the off-books payments] will be potentially relegation inducing.”
