How Chelsea, Fulham and Crystal Palace fare in new predicted Premier League table amid Everton points news

The Premier League table changed on Monday without a single fixture having been played as news from Everton broke.

Pressure has increased on the bottom half of the Premier League table with news that Everton have had a 10-point deduction reduced to just six points after a successful appeal.

The Toffees had been slapped with the punishment in November for breaching the league's profitability and sustainability rules and Sean Dyche's side had to rally to lift themselves out of the relegation zone. Now, the Merseyside outfit has risen to 15th in the table after their appeal, above Brentford and Nottingham Forest.

The extra Everton points have already shaken up the table and make survival for the likes of Luton Town, Sheffield United and Burnley even more difficult. Meanwhile, Chelsea and Fulham may also be looking over their shoulders. Here's how the stats experts at Opta think the Premier League table will finish as it stands.
