Arsenal receive a possible title boost as Manchester City could face points deduction after “unprecedented” Premier League charge. 


Manchester City could reportedly face a points deduction after being charged by the Premier League for breaching numerous Financial Fair Play rules.

A statement from the league said alleged breaches were committed across nine different seasons beginning in September of 2009-10 to 2017-18 and will now be referred to an independent commission.

 This has been described by Times journalist Martyn Ziegler as “unprecedented” in the tweets below, as he explains that the reigning champions Manchester City could  face a range of potential sanctions including a points deduction and expulsion if they are proven guilty of these charges. 

This could have huge repercussions in this season’s Premier League title race, with Arsenal currently five points ahead with a game in hand and sure to be the clear favourites to win the league if their nearest rivals City end up being docked points. 

 It will be interesting to see how this big story develops and if we could see a strong punishment handed out to City soon.
