Everton’s Premier League status faces renewed uncertainty after a recent 10-point deduction, marking the largest sporting sanction in the competition’s history due to a breach of profit and sustainability rules.
The Toffees have slipped from 14th to second bottom in the table, narrowly avoiding the bottom spot held by Sean Dyche’s former team Burnley.
This setback is a significant blow to Everton, which had been showing notable improvement under Dyche in recent weeks. Conversely, struggling teams like Sheffield United, Luton, and Burnley view this deduction as a potential boost to their survival prospects.
To assess everybody’s chances of survival, GrosvenorCasino collaborated with AI experts, utilising a simulation that considers various statistics such as current form, past, and future match outcomes, expected goals (XG), and in-match performances.

AI’s Premier League bottom three prediction
20th – Burnley: 16 points
Vincent Kompany’s side are currently bottom of the table on four points and the AI predicts that they’ll only register another 12 points this season. As a result they will remain at the foot of the table.
19th – Sheffield United: 21 points
The Blades are currently 18th on five points, and could move out of the relegation zone after this weekend’s fixtures are played. Nevertheless, the AI prediction thinks Paul Heckingbottom’s team will finish second-bottom.
18th – Luton Town: 24 points
Rob Edwards’ men are giving Premier League survival a good go, currently 17th on six points, but their decent start will not continue according to the AI prediction because they will finish five points behind Bournemouth who occupy 17th spot in the predicted standings.
