How Prem table looks after Forest’s points deduction

1 Arsenal
2 Liverpool
3 Manchester City
4 Aston Villa
5 Tottenham Hotspur
6 Manchester United
7 West Ham United
8 Brighton and Hove Albion
9 Wolverhampton Wanderers
10 Newcastle United
11 Chelsea
12 Fulham
13 Bournemouth
14 Crystal Palace
15 Brentford
16 Everton
17 Luton Town
18 Nottingham Forest
19 Burnley
20 Sheffield United

It sees them go from 17th on 25 points to 18th and in the drop zone on 21 points.

Luton have been the biggest beneficiaries from the news as they now rise just above safety without even kicking a ball.

Forest were charged in January for breaching the Premier League’s PSR rules in the 2022/23 campaign.

Under the Financial Fair Play regulations, clubs cannot lose more than £105million over three seasons.

This year is Forest’s second in the top-flight but they have not avoided punishment after being measured against both Prem and EFL regulations.

Meanwhile, in the Championship, they were not allowed to lose more than £61m-a-year.

Since their promotion via the 2022 play-off final, they have splashed the cash on 42 players.

They have broke their transfer record three times for Taiwo Awoniyi, Morgan Gibbs-White and Ibrahim Sangare.

In their case against the independent panel, Forest have supposedly argued they were only in breach of the rules for two months while filling their accounts between June 30 and September 1.

They had only received the first instalment of the £47.5m they are owed by Tottenham from the sale of Brennan Johnson in a deal completed on September 1.

Why More Penalties Are Being Scored

Forest have 14 days to launch an appeal.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are the second team to be slapped by a deduction after Everton were docked six points.

They originally had ten taken from their total but it was reduced after a successful appeal.
