Everton fans turned out in their thousands to protest against the Premier League yesterday.

 

During the international break, the Toffees received a 10-point deduction for breaking the profit and sustainability regulations.

 

Everyone at the club was taken aback by the decision, and many felt that it was unfair to impose such a severe penalty.

 

As a result, Everton dropped from 14th to 19th place in the standings and was forced to fight for survival once more.

 

To make their feelings clear to the Premier League, supporters packed the streets of Goodison Park in their droves before the 3-0 loss to Manchester United.

 

The march started at The Brick pub in County Road, up Spellow Lane and then along Goodison Rod. Protests then took place inside the stadium before and during the encounter, with cards being held up that turned the stands pink.

The 1878s, a fan group that coordinated the protests, wrote on X: “We are incredibly grateful to all of our fans for their support and assistance today.
Regretfully, the outcome did not align with our initial goals. We refuse to be quiet, to remain unseen, and we will not be dislodged.”
