Everton have been docked 10 points after being found guilty of breaching Premier League financial rules, plunging the club into the relegation zone.
Premier League champions Manchester City were charged earlier this year with 115 alleged breaches of financial fair play regulations. That case is ongoing. Only two other clubs have received points deductions in Premier League history.
Middlesbrough were deducted three points for failing to fulfil a fixture against Blackburn during the 1996/97 season, while in 2010 Portsmouth were deducted nine points after going into administration. Both clubs were relegated.
Nine-time English champions Everton have been a continuous presence in the top flight since 1954 and have never been relegated from the Premier League but they only avoided the drop by two points last season and have spent years in the shadow of city rivals Liverpool.
Sean Dyche's side are now level on points with bottom club Burnley on four points after 12 matches - and five points adrift of safety.
