The league leaders were charged by the FA earlier this week with seven breaches of regulations relating to third-party ownership and agents.
On that occasion, the Premier League elected to impose a £5.5million fine on the Hammers rather than impose any points penalty.

He told the Daily Mail: "I've spoken to our legal advisers and they have been very reassuring.
"From what they have told me, this is nothing like the Tevez situation."
