Premier League teams vote on a new rule, with Chelsea and Man City receiving points deduction verdicts.
As Premier League clubs vote on a new regulation, Chelsea is found to have lost by points.
In advance of Chelsea’s match against Newcastle United this weekend, Reece James has provided a positive injury update.
On Saturday afternoon, Eddie Howe will greet the Blues at St. James’ Park as both teams attempt to move up the Premier League standings following the international break.
The Blues skipper decided not to travel with the England team this month, preferring to concentrate on getting well after his recent injury recovery.
Due to a hamstring issue, James missed a significant portion of the Premier League season’s opening, but the 23-year-old defender has since been cleared to play.
He has even posted an update on his recuperation on his Instagram account.
He wrote: “Good start to the week” beneath the caption of a photo of himself working out at Cobham under the lights.
Unlike Everton, former Liverpool player John Aldridge thinks neither Chelsea nor Manchester City will lose points.
Premier League teams woes
The Reds legend said in an interview with the Liverpool Echo that the two teams’ weaponry had “scared off” investigators.
“Everton were a sitting duck,” he remarked. I am not sure how you measure that, so I suppose it all depends on what occurs in the future. We have all seen what Roman Abramovich has done to Chelsea or the 115 charges at Man City.
“Were the other teams’ successes later on the reason behind it?
“Are the other five in the top six? Maybe because Everton does not have the funds to combat it. Due to the City’s and Chelsea’s limitless resources, those attempting to carry out these projects for years have been put off, causing more delays.
“Although Everton was not physically capable of doing it, I am confident they could have done it with the same tools.”
Soon, new regulations may be implemented.
The 17 Premier League teams, including Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur, convened on Tuesday to cast votes on proposed modifications to related-party dealings.
The outcome of this vote might significantly alter the way business is done in the English premier league.
The discussion started soon after rumours surfaced that Ruben Neves had a contentious January loan deal with Newcastle United.
Premier League executives assert that the plan is part of a larger discussion on related party transactions rather than an attempt to prevent the Al-Hilal midfielder from joining the Magpies.
Premier League teams in England had a vote to decide whether or not to restrict new loans from “related parties.”
Clubs would be prohibited from signing players on loan from organizations owned by the same people if the ban is approved. Neves, for instance, has been strongly connected to a temporary transfer from Al-Hilal to the Magpies in January; however, since PIF, the Saudi state sovereign wealth fund, owns both teams, a transfer is no longer feasible.
In a similar vein, should the legislation pass, Chelsea would no longer be permitted to recruit a player on loan from Strasbourg.
It should be noted that the vote will only serve as a stopgap until a longer-term solution is identified.
