With the results scheduled for next month, Premier League clubs anticipate a points deduction for a high-spending team.

This season, Everton has already received ten points in punishment; another club could follow suit next month, as Premier League teams anticipate the same outcome.

The Toffees were docked ten points in November for violating the Premier League’s sustainability and profit standards. They have since filed an appeal, and the outcome is expected to be announced shortly.

The Merseyside club was again accused of breaking financial laws on January 15, but Nottingham Forest was also named in the charges.

Executives at opposing Premier League teams predict, according to The Independent, that Forest will be the second team this season to lose points. The Nottingham club will find out early next month.

Since rejoining the Premier League, Forest has made significant acquisitions, adding 43 players. Thirty of those acquisitions came during their inaugural campaign in the Premier League, where they finished fourth, four points clear of relegation.
Additional point deductions would give the Premier League’s relegation battle a new dynamic, since the results of Everton’s and Nottingham Forest’s legal cases will have an impact on many clubs in the top division of England.
