The fallout from Everton's Premier League points deduction continues.
The Blues are set to appeal against the decision this week, while a number of other clubs, including Leicester City and Leeds United, could seek compensation.
The 10 points docking means Everton have moved down into the relegation zone, though a number of pundits are under the impression that Sean Dyche can still steer the club to safety.
Meanwhile, speculation continues surrounding possible punishments for Manchester City and Chelsea, who have been charged and are said to be under investigation respectively by the Premier League.
With the international break at an end, Everton can at least try and look forward to the match against Manchester United on Sunday. Fan protests against the Premier League are expected to take place with Sky Sports said to be taking action to cancel out offensive chanting during the game.

Everton points deduction: Everything being done to challenge the Premier League amid appeal
Almost one week on from Everton being hit with an unprecedented points deduction, the battle lines have been drawn.
The Blues quickly came out to challenge the severity of the 10-point sanction. Interim chief executive Colin Chong labelled the punishment “wholly unjust” while the club said it did not recognise some of the factors said to have influenced the independent commission. An intention to appeal was made on the day the ruling was published.
Supporters mobilised quickly and now, less than seven days later, several significant protests are planned - bolstered by the incredible support shown to fan group the 1878s, which has received donations of more than £40,000 toward its efforts to highlight the fury among Evertonians.
Meanwhile, the fight has reached the corridors of power with political heavyweights such as regional mayors and MPs expressing concerns over the penalty and showing support for Everton’s appeal. As attention begins to turn to the weekend and the visit of Manchester United to Goodison Park, this is everything being done to highlight the anger over the club's treatment and back the case to challenge it.
