(Photo: Reuters)LONDON - Everton have had 10 points deducted for a breach of the Premier League’s profitability and sustainability rules (PSR) in the 2021-22 season, England's top football league said on Friday. The club said it would appeal the penalty imposed for losing too much money, calling it “disproportionate”. An independent commission imposed an immediate deduction that will drop Everton from 14th in the standings into the relegation zone, above bottom side Burnley on goal difference. The Premier League said it had issued a complaint against the Merseyside club and referred the case to the independent commission earlier this year.
