Conor Coady, a former Everton defender, doesn’t believe that the recently imposed points deduction will significantly impact the atmosphere within the Toffees’ dressing room.

Following a breach of the Premier League’s financial rules, Everton will return to action with a 10-point deficit from their last game against Crystal Palace.

Coady, who spent the previous season on loan at Goodison Park, expressed his perspective to Sky Sports News on November 18. He mentioned, “It’s kind of hard to stand here now because I don’t know the ins and outs of it, I’ll be honest. As a football player, you don’t really look too much into what’s going on inside clubs.” According to Coady, players tend to focus on their game and move forward, adapting to whatever circumstances arise. He expects Everton players to handle the situation professionally and continue their positive start to the season after the international break.

Different mindset

Despite Everton’s commendable efforts to distance themselves from the relegation zone, the points deduction places them back in a precarious position. Coady acknowledged the challenge facing the players and coaching staff to guide the club away from the danger zone and secure their place in the Premier League beyond this season.

While Coady acknowledges the resilience of the team, the recent turn of events may alter the players’ mindset. Previously playing with a sense of freedom against Crystal Palace, they will now enter the upcoming game against Manchester United with a clear understanding of the stakes involved. Everton has ample time left in the season to reverse their fortunes, but if they find themselves near the relegation zone later on, the pressure will undoubtedly intensify.

Despite these challenges, there is optimism that the squad, based on their recent performances, has the capability to string together a positive run of form and avoid being in a precarious position as the season progresses.
