Fans are demanding severe consequences for Manchester City and Chelsea if they are proven to have violated the financial regulations of the Premier League.

This strong reaction follows Everton’s recent punishment of a 10-point deduction for breaking the Profitability and Sustainability Rules. As a result, Sean Dyche’s team has been pushed into the relegation zone. However, Everton has stated that they will challenge this decision.

After the announcement of the ruling, Premier League fans expressed their opinions on social media, demanding that City and Chelsea receive even harsher punishments if they are found guilty of breaking the rules. Suggestions varied from relegating them to the fifth-tier of English football to stripping them of the trophies they have won in recent years.

City was accused of violating Premier League regulations 115 times from 2009 to 2018, as reported in February. The investigation into these allegations is still ongoing. Chelsea is also being investigated due to potential financial rule violations related to payments made by former owner Roman Abramovich.
