Premier League Clubs Warned of FFP Investigations, Chelsea Faces Points Deduction Verdict
Chelsea is likely to escape straightforward punishments for allegedly violating the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSRs) as the league considers another crackdown on regulations.

Within the next two weeks, clubs, including Nottingham Forest and Everton, may discover if they will face charges for breaching financial rules.

Everton, already hit with a ten-point deduction in November (which they appealed), and Forest, with heavy spending after gaining promotion from the Championship, are at risk.

Under the PSRs, clubs can incur a maximum loss of £105 million over a rolling three-year period.
For clubs in the EFL for one or two of those years, the limit is smaller. Forest’s limit is £61 million, £13 million for each of the Championship seasons and the usual £35 million for Premier League teams post-promotion. Football finance expert Kieran Maguire deems Forest most at risk, stating, “Nottingham Forest were very much at the limit of their Financial Fair Play allowance.”

Manchester City faces 115 charges of FFP rule breaches, and the Premier League is investigating Chelsea for off-the-books payments during Roman Abramovich’s ownership.

These investigations are more complex than Forest or Everton’s cases, suggesting the latter won’t face deductions soon.
Chelsea, despite substantial losses (£156 million in 2020/21 and £121 million in 2021/22), could avoid charges under PSRs.

Maguire credits Chelsea’s adept transfer market usage, selling players like Mason Mount and Kai Havertz for significant sums to balance books, potentially saving them from charges despite hefty spending.
