Man City's date with destiny awaits as their trial with the Premier League is set to begin in Autumn of next year.

Indeed, a report in the Daily Mail claims that Pep Guardiola's side will contest their 115 Premier League charges in front of an independent commission in 2024, and you can be sure City's rivals will be interested to see what result the trial brings, especially in light of the 10-point deduction handed down to Everton for breaking financial rules.

Our ECHO reporters look at what impact City's alleged offences have had on Liverpool, and what appropriate punishments would be.

'If guilty, double digit deductions just won't cut it'

Paul Gorst: Everton's 10-point deduction for breaching Profit and Sustainability Rules represents the biggest of its kind in the Premier League era and the governing body have set their stall out considerably for what might follow.

But if Everton warrant 10 points for their breaking of the rules, the major question is how many will be shaved off City if they are found to eventually be guilty of many if not all of their alleged 115 breaches?

While Everton have been working with the Premier League to bring about a resolution - one that still sees them in with a real shot of actually staying up this season - City's case has been characterised by strong, robust denials and obfuscation at almost every turn.

But so too are the charges City are being accused of.

It's a difficult balancing act for the Premier League but one that cannot simply be justly resolved with a double-figure points deduction or financial penalty.

Thirty points is the biggest deduction ever handed out in English football, to Luton Town in 2008, but even equaling that would simply mean an absence of Champions League football for one season at the Etihad.

We're entering uncharted territory for the English game and if the Everton sanction is evidence of the Premier League trying to get strong, it is what they do about City - if they are found to be guilty - that will really prove their stomach for the fight.

'Throw the book at them and hit them where it hurts'

Theo Squires: If Man City are found guilty of breaching the Premier League's Profit and Sustainability Rules, then they have to be made an example of.

It'll never make up for it'

Joe Rimmer: Whatever punishment is handed down to Man City (if found guilty), it'll never be enough for Liverpool.

Let's face facts here, football is a sport of emotions and even stripping Man City of titles - and I don't think the Premier League would ever go that far - would not make up for, say, 2014's near miss or the years that followed.
