Premier League chiefs discussed on Tuesday (21 November) the 10-point deduction handed to Everton, according to the Daily Mail.
The newspaper said on its website on Tuesday that several subjects were covered at a meeting held at a London hotel.
The Toffees were handed the punishment on Friday (17 November), effective immediately, for breaching the Premier League’s financial rules.
Among the topics discussed was the sanction against the Merseyside club, the newspaper reported.
And noting the current charge against Manchester City regarding 115 charges, the Daily Mail added: “Their case remains ongoing, but shareholders from rival clubs were expected to question today if progress was being made in coming to a decision on whether City are guilty of any wrongdoing and what the potential punishment could be.”
Everyone connected with Everton will still be feeling extremely hard done by about the recent decision to dock the club 10 points.
They’ll be bringing up the comparable problem at Manchester City, where Chelsea, a different Premier League team, is also receiving criticism from Toffees supporters.
However, the fact that other Premier League teams are at least talking about this is a positive step for Everton and will only serve to increase awareness of the Toffees’ concerns and what needs to be done in the event that more breaches of this nature occur.
Everton have announced they will appeal the decision, but for now Sean Dyche and his players must simply get on with things.
They will be feeling pretty low after dropping from 14th place to 19th place in the Premier League table, but must dust themselves off and go again at this key stage of the season, with Manchester United up next at Goodison Park.
