- City have been banned from competing in Champions League for two seasons
- European ban may be overturned but any league punishment is likely to stand
Manchester City are ‘highly likely’ to face a Premier League points deduction after they were punished by Uefa.
City have been banned from participating in the Champions League for two years and also received a £25million fine for breaching Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.
As reported by The Independent, the Premier League will be forced to act due to its own licensing, which pertains to Uefa’s FFP rules.
Manchester City are now ‘highly likely’ to be deducted points by the Premier League
Uefa’s Adjudicatory Chamber found that City overstated its sponsorship revenue.
Although City’s Champions League ban could be overturned, that is unlikely to be the case for any punishment that they face from the Premier League.

The report indicates that Premier League committees had already discussed potential punishments in the event that Uefa punished City.
City are currently in second place in the Premier League on 51 points, 22 points adrift of runaway leaders Liverpool.
